Robert Morris University School Information Robert Morris University is an independent, not-for-profit, multi-location institution offering associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degree programs that focus on integrating theory and applications. Robert Morris University will prepare students to be practitioners in their chosen fields, socially responsible to their communities, and a foundation for their families. Our students come from various walks of life, many different cultures, and many different countries. By sharing their diverse life experiences, students at Robert Morris University can enhance their emotional growth, as well as their educational development. Unlike other universities, our dedicated students begin coursework in their field of study during their first quarter on location. This ensures that our students get the courses they need to graduate on time and are better prepared to succeed in the workforce.

Why a Hockey Playing Student-Athlete Should Choose Robert Morris University 1. “Chicago is our campus.” The city of Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world. Because of our different campus locations, prospective student-athletes can choose to be a part of the bustle and excitement of downtown Chicago, or the quieter appeal of suburban living. Either setting will afford our students unique post-graduation job opportunities and experiences that would not be available to them in other areas of the country. 2. “The experience university.” Our faculty is uniquely qualified to provide a real-world education, and that can mean all the difference when you are competing in a job market that becomes more and more selective. 3. “Built to help you succeed.” With 10 week quarters and small class sizes, RMU-IL maximizes the chance for our students to graduate. You are not a faceless statistic here, and you have as much access to your teaching staff, counselors, and Financial Aid administrators as you need. 4. “School support for the complimentary nature of athletics and academics.” RMU-IL provides the perfect blend of administrative support for all of our student-athletes. From free tutorial services to engaged academic oversight, the school is truly concerned with progressing the student-athlete towards his or her degree. At the same time, studentathletes can feel the unqualified backing of RMU-IL staff from the highest levels of the administration down through all of the support personnel. Administrators, teachers, counselors, and financial aid staff are regular attendees at our games. RMU athletes are expected to be campus leaders and examples of what RMU-Il stands for both on campus and off.

5. “Generous Financial Aid availability.” As a non-profit private institution, RMU can offer a wide variety of federal, state and private scholarships or grants. Our financial aid counselors work closely with our students to find as many academic, financial need and special qualification grants as possible to insure that the maximum amount of financial assistance can be provided on a case by case basis. This personal touch helps make RMU a “step above” other Universities when it comes to overall value in education. 6. “A program for every ability level.” RMU-IL hockey offers 4 men’s and 1 women’s program. Our 4 men’s teams offer a place for all ability levels, from elite to lesser experienced. The Gold Team competes at the ACHA Division I level, our Maroon Team at the ACHA Div II level, and our White and Black teams at the ACHA Div III level. Our women’s program has competed at a National Championship level for years. 7. “The best for the best.” RMU-IL shows support for its hockey programs by providing them a home at The Edge in Bensenville, IL. This state-of-the-art rink features two ice surfaces on-site with a third on adjacent property. The Gold team boasts a permanent locker room that is the envy of many NCAA programs, and the Maroon and White teams also have permanent locker rooms on site. As a fully sponsored sport, RMU-IL funds all travel, uniforms, and fees associated with intercollegiate play, and unlike most ACHA hockey teams, there is no fee to participate.

Robert Morris University Season Outlook & Review RMU GOLD MEN’S ACHA D1

The one constant in sports is change, and just months after completing a season with the program’s best won-lost record, the RMU Gold hockey team welcomed 13 new faces for the 2011-12 season. “We lost 7 terrific seniors who contributed so much,” said head coach Chico Adrahtas,”but we had an outstanding recruiting class and that was reflected in our try out process.” Over 4 days of scrimmages, what became apparent was that the staff added a significant amount of team speed at forward, bolstered their depth on defense, and is very talented in the game’s most important position, goal. The strong class of first year players had a ripple effect on the program, as at least 5 players who were on the Gold team during the 2010-11 campaign were assigned to the Maroon team’s roster, significantly bolstering RMU’s Division II team’s hopes for a run at the National Championships. Returning from last year’s team are senior goalie Marcus Feferman (Wheeling, IL), senior defenseman Michael Sugden ( Milwaukee, WI ), junior defenseman and co-captain Ryan McGaughy (Gurnee, IL ), sophomore defensemen Zack Kuta ( McChesney Park, IL ), Andrew Montague Kalamazoo, MI), and Mitch Tews (Tinley Park, IL). Returners up front include team leading scorer and CSHL Rookie of the Year Gehrett Sargis (Midloathian, IL) and his linemates, productive right wing Chris Cimoch (Crestwood, IL) and center Dave Bauer ( St. Louis, MO ). Brett Moser (Chicago, IL), the team’s premier penalty killer is back along with fellow PK standout Geno Melone (Towers Lake, IL). Versatile Adam Keasey (Canton, MI) is coming off an injury-plagued first year, but has also shined in the early going. Also returning are two players who fought for ice time on a week-in and week-out basis, Nick Leon (Aurora, IL) and Mike Stubits (Winfield, IL). Leon had a particularly productive camp and was amongst the leading scorers. While those players form a solid basis of optimism for the ‘11-’12 season, it is the banner recruiting crop that has the RMU staff so anxious for the first real drop of the puck. “In years past, when we have our recruiting camps, we might get 2 or 3 high profile players,” observed Hockey Director Tom Wendlandt. “This year, we only lost 2.” In goal, working to fill the void left by All American netminder Dan Venet, the Eagles brought in Anthony Petrak (Bolingbrook, IL), a Junior hockey star who transferred in from Davenport. Along with Petrak, the team targeted Andy DiCrisitifaro (St. Clair Shores, MI), who is coming off an AllStar level season with his Junior team in Missoula. Montana. “Both guys bring different assets to the table,” said Adrahtas, “but with them in the fold, it will be a long time before we have to recruit any more goaltending help.”

2011-2012 Eagles Hockey

While the club only lost 1 defenseman, the loss was a big one. Senior co-captain Jesper Carlsten had put in back to back great years and was a mainstay on special teams. But the Eagles managed to land lanky Tyler Martarano (Naperville, IL), an impact defenseman who flew under everyone’s radar after missing most of last season with a shoulder injury. Martorano has had an exceptional camp, and is projected to more than fill the los left by Carlsten’s graduation. Adding depth to the defensive corps are freshmen Will Nunez (Naperville, IL) and sophomore transfer Ryan O’Connell (Des Plaines, IL). Nunez is one of two rarities on the RMU squad, a true freshman in a world that rarely sees them make teams that are packed with players who’ve had 2 or more years of Junior hockey experience. O’Connell is one of those players, and is a steady, stay at home type. Up front, the Eagles were looking for replacements for an entire line of seniors with a history of scoring. Graduation saw the exits of Matt Olson, Bart Reeves, and Nick Fina. “We will never replace Olson’s leadership,” Adrahtas pointed out, but we hope to have made up for losing his production.” The RMU staff brought in 3 standout scorers from the NA3HL and are looking to plug them in together as a line. Kyle Hamilton (Pekin, IL) and Mason Riley (Pekin, IL) have been teammates and linemates for years and both were amongst the elite players in their league while leading their team in Peoria in scoring. They’ll start the season on the same line with Tony Domico (Naperville, IL), who led the Chicago Hitmen in scoring. Another forward adding significantly to the excitement is Rock Einersen (Chicago, IL). Einersen has a standout scorer in the NAHL, one of North America’s best Junior leagues, and has been showing a deft scoring touch during camp. Markus Ellis (Bolingbrook, IL) comes to the Eagles after taking a year off the sport, and has shown little rust. He will start the year as Einersen’s right wing with transfer Josh Kaebel (Pekin, IL) playing on the left. Kaebel started camp slowly but has been one of the best players on the ice recently. Another NAHL graduate, freshman Thomas McEachern ( Rochster Hills, MI ) has had a strong camp as well. Perhaps the biggest surprise of camp has been the play of the team’s other true freshman, Derek Winkler (Tinley Park, IL). A late-summer walk-on who had played locally for the AAA Chicago Fury, his relative inexperience has not shown at all and he has put himself in a position to earn early season ice time. “There are going to be some bumps along the way because of so many new faces,” said Assistant Coach Chad Berman.”But you can feel the strength of character in the locker room and see the improved speed and skill on the ice. We’re very excited about how far this team can go.”

RMU MAROON ACHA D2

The Maroon team now finds itself the only remaining ACHA


Season Outlook & Review Robert Morris University D2 team in the RMU hockey program, as all of the other teams (including the downstate teams) are now in the ACHA D3 ranks. As the flagship D2 team, they will continue the quest for another trip to the national tournament, a feat that has eluded them for some time. Under the regional tournament format the Maroon team has found itself a bit snake bit, losing four times in the first round despite very impressive squads. Last season the team started slowly and then had a furious finish, only to find themselves just a few ranking points out of the regional event. “This should make this team hungry for a faster start this year,” stated head coach Rick Cazares, “Hopefully the team will play with the same sense of urgency they showed the final six or seven weeks last season.” As usual Maroon will play a tough ACHA D2 schedule that will pit them against team striving for the regional tournament themselves on a weekly basis, so every game will have an impact on their success. “With the ability to play so many good teams in the D2 ranks it makes sense to use most every weekend for an opportunity to show the ranking committee this team belongs in the top ten,” said Director of Hockey Operations Tom Wendlandt. “It sure can be fun for the fans as they get to see quality teams week in and week out.” Despite losing some key players to graduation, expect this team to see an upgrade in overall talent since the Gold team had such a strong recruiting class. In addition to seeing some fine players with Gold team experienced join the Maroon ranks, grad student Nick Fina will spend a fifth and final season on Maroon, adding scoring touch, depth and big time game experience. He will be joined by former Gold teammates Eddie Chisholm, Terry Gagleard , Ben Uhrich and John Sellman to form a mature and experience nucleus for Maroon in 2011-12. Seniors returning to Maroon who should have a big impact include powerful forward Jason Slechta, the crafty and always reliable Andrew Saviola, grinder Josh Hobbs, and the fleet footed dynamo Mike Palmeri. There should be no lack of motivation for this group to finish their careers at RMU on a high note. The goaltending will be shared by a pair of seniors and a talented young freshman, as the familiar faces of Sean Plarski and Kyle Briant will battle for position with Emilio Miniscalco. There is plenty enough talent here to backstop the Maroon team to a glorious season. “The team has a nice mixture of players from freshmen to grad students,” said new assistant coach Micah Robbins, “We hope to create a positive atmosphere where they can all compete for playing time and pull together as a team at the same time.”

Look for a big year from Maroon, as they seek to get into the regional tournament and make some noise before heading to nationals. Good luck to all!

RMU WHITE ACHA D3

The coming season holds a whole new set of challenges for the White team as they embark on the journey as the “flagship” D3 team in the Chicago family of teams. Having won back-to-back MCHL championships in the mid level D2 MCHL league left few challenges for White at D2, and the time has come for this team to rise to the challenge of becoming a contender for regional and national competition at the ACHA D3 level. “This team may be in for a surprise,” stated the Director of Hockey Operations Tom Wendlandt, “They are going to find out early that making this change means they will be taking a step up in competition, not down.” This is due to the competitive dynamics of the ACHA, which has a plethora of talented teams in Michigan. “Ever since we’ve been in the ACHA central region the Michigan teams have dominated,” said Wendlandt, “The top D3 teams in Michigan could qualify for D2 regional play in many cases.” The task of raising the expectations for the White team this season will be the coaching tandem of Stan Dubicki and Joe Smiegel, who coached the Black team the past two seasons….which means they are already familiar with many of the teams White will face this year. We look forward to watching the growth of the White team as they take on some new challenges in 2011-12 season, we’re sure they will be up to the task.

RMU BLACK ACHA D3

Things have come full circle, as the RMU Black team has been accepted into the locally based MACHA (Mid American Collegiate Hockey Association), which is the league the first RMU Gold team (D2 way back then) first earned its stripes. The MACHA has grown into perhaps the largest conference in the ACHA, boasting twenty eight teams in two divisions (Gold and Silver). The Black team will compete in the Silver Division North and will have a conference tournament berth to strive for. “This should be a good fit for the Black team,” said Tom Wendlandt, “As our developmental team it became obvious after the first two seasons that playing a more local schedule and having a conference championship to play for was the best plan. We’re happy to have a Chicago based Robert Morris team back in the league.” Head coach Mike Keating will take over the Black squad as they begin their new journey, and he will have some senior leadership to help guide the way. Upper classmen Mike Fratto, Bryan Cook and Michael Lundt, all who played

Robert Morris University Season Outlook & Review for Maroon in 2010-11 will anchor the Black team, as their increased study loads and internships dictate a more localized schedule for these talented players. Let’s predict a tournament appearance in their first year in the MACHA as we let this new season roll out.

RMU WOMEN’S ACHA D1

The 2011/2012-team outlook for the Robert Morris University Lady Eagles hockey team has only positive aspirations in their future. The #2 ranked RMU women fell in the 2011 National Championships failing to advance from robin elimination. Looking to bounce back from the disappointment previous season, RMU turned to familiar name within RMU to lead the Lady Eagles Hockey Program as Women’s Hockey Director and Head Coach, Bud Hickey. Bud served as the RMU Men’s D2 Head Coach for 4 seasons and led the Maroon to a “Top 10” ranking each season and also qualified his teams for the ACHA Regional Tournament each season as well. Last season Bud changed roles and responsibilities and served as recruiter primarily focused on Women’s Hockey. A successful recruiting season resulted in a total of 9 new players being added to this year’s team. The recruiting class will provide much needed depth to the program and strengthen the core of veteran women on the roster. The RMU women have goals to become highly ranked within the ACHA Women’s division 1 program, holding a solid spot in the national tournament, and regaining their

prestige among other former RMU alumni as National Champions. This young, hardworking team has nothing but their best foot going forward coming into the 2011/2012 season. RMU has strengthened their competitive schedule to test this young set of skilled players all year long. Among the schedule, Coach Hickey has arranged games with many NCAA Division 1 & 3 teams to compete against at a higher level. Given the talent, tenacity, and desire of this years RMU Lady Eagles roster the outlook of 2011/2012 looks promising, with many obstacles, and hardships along the way. This RMU team is no stranger to overcoming adversity, and with their new coaching perspective and young, lively roster this year’s season is projected to be one the most exciting to watch. “I am honored to have been chosen to lead our Lady Eagles Hockey program. The mission for the program is to build upon our tradition of academic excellence and national championship caliber teams established by our women’s ice hockey program. My goal as the Women’s Hockey Director and Head Coach is to build a program that inspires and prepares our student athletes to achieve excellence in the classroom, community and in competition. We are building a foundation for the program that will allow for growth, consistent performance, and sustainable long term success for our Women’s Ice Hockey Team and our student athletes. Our vision and goal is to establish the Women’s Hockey program at Robert Morris University as gold standard and model that others strive to achieve.”


Coaches & Staff Robert Morris University TOM WENDLANDT Director of Hockey Operations

The patriarch of the Robert Morris hockey program enters his thirteenth season at the helm of the largest ACHA hockey program in the country, as RMU supports seven hockey teams in its program: Four men’s teams here in Chicago, two men’s teams in Springfield and Peoria, and of course the women’s team in Chicago that has won two national titles. Enough time has passed where it can get easy to forget the early years when many nights were spent in local rinks speaking to a select group of young men about coming to Robert Morris to help start what was then a vision for a new collegiate program here in Chicago. The engine behind all that growth has been the now Director of Hockey Operations Tom Wendlandt, and no one could be more proud of the RMU hockey program as it has become an integral part of the local hockey fabric here in Chicago and beyond. “It’s great to take a step back once in awhile and reflect on just how many young men and women have had the opportunity to play college hockey thanks to the RMU program,” says Wendlandt, “thanks to the efforts of many people we have built a unique program that provides a first class experience for over 150 student-athletes each season…and that is certainly something to be proud of.” Tom is quick to point out that the success of the program has been built through the efforts of far more than just his: “None of this could have happened without the tremendous support of the University and dozens of other coaches and staff over the years who have shown their love of the game by working with us here at RMU.” Ask him the biggest change over the years and he’s quick to point out that “so many of our alumni from the first years of the program have children of their own already…. Time marches on very quickly, doesn’t it?” The former head coach of the Gold team was voted the ACHA D2 Central Region Coach of the Year in 2002-03, a year which saw the Gold team be only the second ACHA D2 team to reach the national tournament in its second year of competition. The following season saw the Gold team jump to the ACHA D1 ranks, where the team finished #7 in the nation in his final season behind the bench before taking on the role of Director of Hockey for the University. Tom and his wife Lynne reside in Palatine, IL are proud grandparents of two young grandchildren who are a big part of their lives away from hockey. In 1994 they founded the now defunct Prospect High School hockey program that won one game in its first season but finished in the semi-finals of the AHAI state championships in his final year prior to accepting the position at Robert Morris. A strong proponent of educating young players on what it takes to play collegiate hockey, Tom has spoken at many USA Hockey, AHAI and ACHA seminars and symposiums. In addition, his vision for the Robert Morris sponsored annual ACHA Midwest Showcase tournament that is tied into a major seminar and college recruiting event that has become a staple of the hockey calendar for high school aged players all over metro Chicago. Staying competitive in the ever-improving ACHA is a constant challenge, so we asked him for some final thoughts on expectations: “We expect that each of our flagship teams will compete for a national title and our developmental teams to win their respective conferences. That is a lofty goal, but one that serves as a constant reminder to our student-athletes that there is reward in striving for high achievements. We’ve been rewarded with two national championships from our women, an elite eight performance and five national tournament appearances from our top (D1) men’s team, several regional tournaments and a national tournament appearance from our top D2 team, and four conference championships. That’s a nice foundation to build on.” Final thoughts? “We always remind them, they are students first, and that education comes before hockey,” says Wendlandt. “At the same time, we want to provide a hockey experience that they will cherish the rest of their lives.” Nicely said.

Robert Morris University Coaches & Staff CHICO ADRAHTAS Head Coach Gold Team

Chico Adrahtas begins his fourth season at the helm of the Gold team. The 2011-12 edition of the Eagles will feature his third full recruiting class, and 13 new additions to the program will help ease the loss of 7 impact seniors who graduated from the 2010-11 team which won a school-record 26 games while finishing 12th in the National Rankings. For his efforts, Adrahtas was recognized as the CSCHL Coach of the Year, the first time an RMU coach has earned such an honor at the Div I level. A veteran of 29 years in coaching with well over 800 career wins and 4 National Championships, he served as the head coach of the Danville Wings in both the NAHL and the USHL, his teams going 70-54-17 in the process. Twenty one of those players received Div I NCAA scholarships and 4 were NHL draft choices. After leaving the Wings, he served as the Hockey Director for the Chicago Mission AAA Club before coming to RMU. Prior to the Wings, he spent a decade coaching for Team Illinois, where his teams won over 500 games, 7 State Championships, 16 tournament titles, and two National Championships, in 1994 and 1997. He coached TI teams that were National Championship runners-up in both 1996 and 1998. 14 of the 20 players from his 1997 National Championship midget team went on to NCAA Division I play. His 1982-83 Chicago Jets team won the Tier II Midget National Championship, and his 1983-84 Franklin Park Jets won the Junior A National Championship. That team featured an allIllinois roster, won its last 29 games in a row, and to this day is the only Junior A team that won a National title that wasn’t from either the USHL or the NAHL ( formerly known as the GLHL ). He founded the still-running Midwest Goalie School in 1981, recently turning that distinguished camp over to former RMU coach Kelly Gee. A former goalie, Chico was a First Team All American at the College of DuPage and backstopped the team to a National Championship in 1980 and was named National Tournament MVP in the process. He had earned the same honor the year before when the team finished second in Nationals, and became the first athlete ever to earn back-to-back MVPs in NJCAA history. He finished his playing career at Brockport State in NY before returning to Chicago to earn a degree in history from North Central College and begin coaching at College of DuPage. Chico’s off-ice interests center around writing, and he is the author of 3 books; Glenn Hall, The Man They Call Mr. Goalie, the bio of his hockey hero; A Lifetime To Get Here, Diana Ross, The Original Dreamgirl, the bio of the Motown legend and; Ruby’s Humans, a look at a dog’s life through the eyes of a dog. “Tom Wendlandt founded this program and working with him has been exactly what I’d hoped it would be,” said Adrahtas. “I am confident that together, we have established the RMU Gold team as an elite program in the ACHA. His belief in the efforts of our staff is a very motivating factor, and we expect to take yet another step this season towards his dream and our ultimate goal; winning a National Championship.”

CHAD BERMAN Assistant Coach Gold Team

Chad begins his fourth season at RMU and his second as assistant to the Gold team. Chad spent his first two seasons as assistant for the Maroon team with Bud Hickey. He is the kind of assistant every head coach wants, as he is capable of handling a wide variety of duties with the competency of a head coach. A native of Michigan who played Junior A hockey for noted Michigan Tech alum Brian Hannon in Springfield, MO, Berman was a forward known for his shooting ability and play away from the puck. He played his college hockey at Fredonia State in New York where he was teammates with Maroon team head coach Rick Cazares. After school, he moved to Chicago where he pursues his twin passions of hockey and music. He is an accomplished guitarist and plays venues throughout the greater metropolitan area. Chad’s primary duties include skill work with the forwards, running the defensemen on the bench during games, video and film instruction for the entire team, plus he has an important role in the recruiting process. “Chad has become an essential part of the Gold team in a short period of time,” said head coach Chico Adrahtas, “I am thrilled to have someone as knowledgeable and trustworthy as Chad to work with on a daily basis.” We’re glad you’re here too Chad….. thanks for your invaluable contributions to Robert Morris!

Coaches & Staff Robert Morris University RICK CAZARES Head Coach Maroon Team

Rick enters his second year at the helm of the Maroon team, and is in his fifth year overall with the Robert Morris University hockey program. This season he will look to have his team start with the kind of fury with which they finished the 2010-11 season, rattling off a long winning streak to complete the year. Before taking over his first head coaching assignment for RMU, Rick spent two seasons as the assistant coach with the Gold team and Chico Adrahtas, whom he had played both midget and junior hockey for at Team Illinois and the Danville Wings respectively. His first year Rick was the assistant for the Maroon team, so he is familiar with the differences between the D1 and D2 levels within the ACHA. Cazares had a distinguished career as a goalkeeper. A native of San Jose, California, he brought a great sense of athleticism to the position where his quickness was his biggest asset. While playing Junior A in Danville, he earned “goalie-ofthe-month” honors twice and the team’s Most Valuable Player award, earned received a scholarship to NCAA Division I Michigan Tech where he played two years. When the school went through a coaching change, Rick transferred to Div III powerhouse Fredonia State where he was named to the SUNY All-Conference team each year there plus was the team’s MVP in 2005-6. Rick began his coaching career at Fredonia as an assistant coach before moving back to the Midwest to join RMU. He has worked as an instructor and assistant director at Midwest Goalie School for 11 years, plus he’s worked with the Chicago Mission AAA program as well. “I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping to both lay a foundation for long term success at the D2 national level and to develop players for the Gold team at the same time,” said Cazares. “In addition, we will set a high standard of both academic and athletic achievement for all the players.” “The Maroon team is in good hands with Rick,” said Tom Wendlandt. “He understands what it means to represent RMU both on and off the ice and I feel strongly this years’ team will have a breakthrough season.”

MICAH ROBBINS Assistant Coach Moroon Team RMU Hockey is proud to have added alumnus Micah Robbins to the staff as assistant coach with the Maroon team. Robbins was a Gold team goaltender all four years of his time as an Eagle, graduating in 2009. Beyond being an accomplished netminder, Micah achieved a singular feat, in that he is the only goalie in RMU history to have scored a goal. With an impressive background in physical training, Micah will oversee the off-ice portion of conditioning for the Maroon team, and consult with all of our teams in that area. He will also help Coach Cazares with practice structure and execution, film work, planning, and system execution. Besides his duties at RMU, he works extensively tutoring goalies for Kage Sports, which is run by former RMU coach Kelly Gee, and is an instructor at Midwest Goalie School. “I am really looking forward to working with Micah,” said head coach Rick Cazares. “He’s very organized and thoughtful, and he will bring the right teaching tone to the program. It says a lot about RMU hockey that we are able to have such a highly qualified graduate of the program come back and work with us.”

Robert Morris University Coaches & Staff STAN DUBICKI Head Coach White Team

As Stan enters his third season at Robert Morris, he also changes roles as he takes over the head coaching duties for the White team. This will also be the first season of competition at the ACHA Division 3 level for the White team, and Stan will have the advantage of being familiar with many of the opponents they will face in the upcoming season. If you find Stan’s face familiar don’t be surprised, as he has a long and accomplished list of coaching duties in the Chicago, ranging from hockey director for the Franklin Park Ice Arena to goaltending consultant for the Chicago Wolves. This season he has also been tapped by the Vancouver Canucks to work with their goalies.

Player development is a key ingredient for coaching one of the two D3 teams RMU now has in the Chicago family, and Stan provides a great fit as a hockey educator. “The lessons learned every time we take the ice can provide our players with an opportunity to improve,” says the coach, “At the end of the day it’s gratifying to see when a player ‘gets it’ and is able to take the next step in becoming a more competitive player at the collegiate level.” “Stan’s even keeled approach combined with his experience makes for a great fit for our organization,” says Tom Wendlandt, “The players on his team should be grateful for all he brings to the table not only in what he teaches on the ice but also regarding his emphasis on studies and personal character.” Stan was a goalie for Lane Tech High School in his early years, moved on to Junior hockey for awhile, then played for Brockport State University in New York where he graduated with a B.S. in Health Science. He has parlayed that experience into a hockey career that included being a head coach for Notre Dame High School, plus working as a goaltending and conditioning instructor for many other organizations including the Wendell Young School of Goaltending. The RMU hockey program sends a “BIG THANKS” to Stan for all he does!

JOE SMIGEL Assistant Coach White Team

Joe has been a dedicated hockey coach in the Chicago area since 1977, and he is returning as the assistant coach with Stan Dubicki for his third season here at Robert Morris. Coaching with quiet intensity, Joe shares a treasure chest of hockey knowledge with his players. He played semi-pro hockey for the Kenosha Flyers in the now defunct Continental League back in the 1970s, and he wears his love for the game on his sleeve. “Joe and Stan make a great coaching combination,” said Tom Wendlandt, “I only hope that the players can appreciate the wealth of experience they possess and take advantage of the opportunity to tap into it.” A grateful RMU hockey program gives a big tip of the cap to Joe for all he does for hockey in not only here at RMU but for all of Chicago!

Coaches & Staff Robert Morris University MIKE KEATING Head Coach Black Team

Taking over the Black team this season, Mike is entering his fifth season on the bench for Robert Morris. His experience with the program and collegiate hockey in general will be a real “plus” for the young players under his wing. He led the White team last season to its second MCHL Championship in its final year as a D2 team, and now he will lead the Black squad on a quest for a silver division title in the MACHA. “Mike’s solid work ethic and his professional approach provide good examples for his players,” stated Tom Wendlandt, “We’re pleased to have Mike as an integral part of the hockey program here at RMU.”

Prior to coaching at Robert Morris, Mike was an assistant coach with former White team head coach Ryan Spencer at Montini Catholic High School. He has been a dedicated proponent of the game for many years in the Chicago area. A long time employee of United Airlines, his management duties sometime find him in remote corners of the world instead of on the ice…. So if you happen to be in Dubai or Peru, don’t be surprised if you bump into Mike! All of us wish to thank Mike for his selfless and dedicated service to our hockey program and we wish him the best of luck this season!

MIKE PECENKA Assistant Coach Black Team Returning for his second season with the RMU program, Mike is a long time hockey associate of head coach Mike Keating. Their association goes back to the 90’s when they worked together at both the Berwyn youth hockey program and with the Oak Park-River Forest Huskies organization. Mike brings a stable influence and maturity to his teams as a coach and his dedication to his craft is obvious. We thank the coaching team of “Mike and Mike” for all they do for RMU!

Robert Morris University Coaches & Staff BUD HICKEY Head Coach Women’s Team

The 2011-12 season finds Bud Hickey in a familiar yet very different role. After three seasons as the head coach of the men’s Maroon D2 team (2007-2010), Bud has taken the reigns as the new head coach of the RMU Women’s team. “We’re very pleased to have Bud back in our hockey family, “ stated Tom Wendlandt, “His business-like approach to the game sets a high standard both on and off the ice for the teams he coaches, and he always expects the best from his student-athletes.” Bud has been intimately involved with upper level Illinois hockey for over 18 years, starting at Marist High School from 1993-1998. He then became an integral part of building the Bartlett High School program into a force from 1999-2002. During those stints he won back to back JV State Championships and made the elite 8 as a varsity coach. Bud has also served as a coach for the prestigious Chicago Showcase team in 1998, and is a recipient of back to back Illinois Hockey Officials Association Sportsmanship Awards in 2001 and 2002. “His players know that they are accountable at all times, ” said Tom Wendlandt, “His work ethic, emphasis on sportsmanship and strong sense of responsibility to every challenge life brings you sets a great example for his players.” Bud is a graduate of Southern-Illinois University Carbondale and is employed by Level One as a national sales manager. He and his wife Antoinette live in Lisle, IL along a with several young hockey players including young goaltender Patrick. All of us at Robert Morris wish Bud and the Lady Eagles the best of success this coming season.

CHRIS CHELIOS Associate Head Coach Women’s Team A familiar face and a familiar name when thinking hockey in the Chicago area, the Robert Morris women’s program is a better place thanks to this affable and capable coach. His efforts have earned him the title of Associate Head Coach and he will be working with newly appointed head coach Bud Hickey toward the goal of keeping the Lady Eagles working towards another national championship. “Cheli brings a positive attitude and his love for the game to the rink every day,” says Tom Wendlandt, “You can’t help but have a good time playing this great game when he is your coach….and he really is a great teacher also.” Yes, Chris is a cousin of former Blackhawk and Red Wing Chris Chelios, but this Chris carved out an impressive resume of his own. He played Junior A hockey in the USHL for the Sioux City Musketeers before landing at the NCAA D3 program at Wisconsin-Superior. After college he played professionally for the Shreveport Mudbugs in the CHL, the Baton Rouge Kingfish in the ECHL and one season of pro hockey in Germany. His 17 years of coaching experience is currently at use as the Hockey Director at the All Seasons Ice Arena in Naperville, IL. He also coached at UW-Superior, and has spent 9 years contributing to the Jeremy Roenick and Chirs Chelios Charity Hockey Camp. In addition to coaching at RMU, he also coaches for the Sabres Youth Hockey program, where he works with the Midget Major & Minor teams. Next time you run into the smiling face of this talented coach be sure to give him big THANK YOU for all he does!

The recent RMU graduate, who holds a degree in Business Administration, expressed interest in filling the position of Assistant coach to former coach Chris Chelios and the new Head coach Bud Hickey. The choice was fairly simple as hockey has always been a passion for this Canadian product from the “hockey capital” of Thunder Bay, Ontairo.

Robert Morris University Coaches & Staff KAREN HYDE Head Athletic Trainer

Tending to four teams worth of the bruises and injuries that come with any hockey season could be a daunting task for some, but Karen Hyde takes it all in stride and handles it all with a personal touch. “Karen is a key ingredient to keeping our hockey program running in many ways” says Tom Wendlandt, “the care she puts into her work is appreciated by the entire staff.” Karen should be a familiar face to anyone involved in sports in Chicago since 1985, as she has a long list of teams she has looked after including (are you ready?): 15 years for Downers Grove North High School, the U.S. Olympic Fencing trials, the U.S. Judo Nationals, the Downers Grove Park District, and a supervisor for the Villa Park Recreational Softball League for the past 26 years. In hockey (her favorite sport), she has tended to the likes of the Chicago Showcase teams for the past 24 years as well as national and international events for the ACHA, state championships for AHAI and Junior Hockey teams including the Chicago Force. Karen has found a home here at Robert Morris, where looking after 4 men’s teams on a weekly basis keeps her busy. She and Lelia Siano co-own Premier Sports Services, and they are in high demand year round in the Chicago area and beyond. Karen graduated from George Williams College with an MS in PE/Sports Psychology and is currently working on an MS in clinical psychology. We couldn’t be happier that we have Karen here with the Robert Morris hockey program and look forward to having her here for many years to come.

LISA SIANO Head Athletic Trainer Women’s Team

A graduate of Eastern Michigan University, Lelia started as an athletic trainer in the Detroit public schools before moving to Chicago. Lelia has been working with Robert Morris for the past 9 years working with both the Men and Women’s programs. Presently Lelia is the Manager of Sports Medcine for Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers. Lelia and Karen Hyde have worked closely together over the years and in January 2011 they traveled together to Turkey as the ATCs for the ACHA Women’s USA Hockey team for the World University Games. Thank you Lelia for your contributions to RMU hockey!

Coach Comments:

A big physical defenseman, the Tinley Park, IL native enters his sophomore year with a reputation as a shut-down defender. In a sport where consistency means everything, Tews was one of RMU’s most reliable presences in the defensive zone, and begins the 2011-12 campaign picking up where he left off. “Mitch is so valuable to our success,” said Berman. “He’s a great penalty killer, and is an intimidating force in the neutral zone. We would not be the same team without him.”

CHRIS CIMOCH

Coach Comments:

The diminutive speedster from Pekin, IL was a player the coaching staff targeted in their recruiting efforts, and watching him play tells you why he was considered a priority. One of the fastest players in the ACHA, Riley is also one of the most physical, leveraging his way into puck possession and passing position. “Mason brings with him the exact type of character and personality we want at RMU,” said Adrahtas,”and his on-ice assets make him the perfect complimentary player on any line.”

A steady, physical defender who hails from Des Plaines, IL, O’Connell made the team with an impressive showing in training camp. In any of RMU’s previous seasons, he would have been a top 4 defender, but will need to be patient on a team that has remarkable depth on the backline. “Ryan’s in a tough situation, but he’s such a classy kid and he understands the role he starts the season in,” said Berman. “We’re very lucky to have a player with the capability of stepping into the line up in a moment’s notice without having a drop-off in play.”

A lanky freshman defenseman from Naperville, Martorano missed months of last year while in junior hockey recovering from shoulder surgery. That did not effect the high hopes the staff has for him, as he shows remarkable poise with the puck that has already earned him significant special team time. “Tyler is a terrific young man who will find his way as a competitor,” said Berman. “Once he’s comfortable within our system and the competition, the sky’s the limit based on his potential.”

A freshman from Bolingbrook, IL, Ellis brings the classic elements of what it means to be a power forward to the game.

His NAHL experience will go a long way towards making him a strong player in the ACHA.”

Perhaps the staff’s most soughtafter recruit, Hamilton, from Pekin, IL, combines speed, scoring touch, and hockey smarts. A leading scorer on the Peoria Mustangs, it is expected that he will make a serious impact on a consistent basis for RMU. “Kyle will be a key part of our special teams,” said Adrahtas,” but just as important he’s a player who presents serious match-up issues for other teams because if his speed and creativity. He can beat you in a lot of ways, and we’re thrilled to have him at RMU.”

Shot: Left Coach Comments:

The powerfully built forward from Chicago, IL begins his freshman campaign at RMU after 2 highly productive seasons in the NAHL. A natural goal scorer with great instincts in all 3 zones, the program is looking for him to challenge for the scoring lead, without sacrificing play in his own end. “Rock has the scoring touch that can’t be taught,” said Adrahtas. “He’s a player the other team is going to have to account for, and we think he’s going to be brilliant on special teams.”

A unanimous choice as team captain, McGaughy provides steady, mature leadership on a team that features 13 new faces. On the ice, the Gurnee, IL native is one of the country’s best penalty killers, and is often matched up against the opposition’s best line. A fearless shot blocker and intense competitor, McGaughy has distinguished himself in each of his 3 years at RMU. “Ryan’s value to the program is incalculable,” said Adrahtas. “He’s simply one of the best people I’ve ever coached.”

Another rare true freshman, Derek comes to RMU from the Chicago Fury AAA program. The Tinley Park native combines shiftiness with smarts, and a fearlessness that makes his effect on the ice considerably bigger than his physical frame. Originally thought to be a player who would wage a weekly fight to stay in the line, Winkler has established his value in the early going. “He’s our biggest and best surprise,” said Adrahtas. “He can play any forward position with equal effectiveness and is going to have a great career here.”

A highly sought-after recruit, this Naperville, IL native is coming off a dominant offensive year of junior hockey. Domico is a true natural scorer and another highly skilled player in a stunning freshman recruiting class. The staff feels he will make an immediate impact in all phases of the game. “Tony has started this year going above and beyond, and really worked hard to hone his game without the puck,” said Adrahtas. “He’s going to be an elite player on our team for a very long time.”

Coaches Comments:

The senior defenseman from Milwaukee, WI has played a valuable role for RMU on special teams and in late game situations. With a competitive fearlessness that belies his size, Sugden consistently leads the team in shot blocks, and paired with Ryan McGaughy usually sees the ice against the opponents best lines. “When Michael came to RMU, he was instrumental in helping us turn the program in the right direction,” said Adrahtas. “His play is a direct reflection of the level of his character.”

MIKE

STUBITS

Shot: Left

Coaches Comments:

The power forward with the spectacular scoring touch burst onto the ACHA scene last year averaging a remarkable two points a game and earning ACHA and CSCHL All Rookie and All Star team berths. He made an impact at regular strength and special teams, and made other teams focus on trying to slow him down as part of their strategy. “Gehrett was the most dangerous offensive player in the country last year,” said Adrahtas. “When he returns from his injury this year, he will help elevate us to elite status in ACHA hockey once again.”

The junior forward from Oswego, IL comes into the year looking to fulfill the injury-interrupted potential that has marked him as a great prospect for some time. An excellent skater with a deceptive shot, he is looking to simplify his game and become a true power forward. “Each time Mike takes to the ice, we see what is possible with him,” said Berman. “Once it really clicks with him, he can be a special player.”

SARGIS

Coaches Comments:

The junior transfer from St. Mary’s college who hails from Pekin, IL is a versatile forward with amazing ice sight. One of the finest passers on the team, Kaebel has also proven to be a stalwart in his own end. A true competitor, he plays like a player twice his size, and finds ways to win battles in the tough areas of the ice. “Josh is a very intelligent player who can play any forward position and is an elite special team player,” said Adrahtas. “He’s going to make an immediate impact.”

Coach Comments:

Elected as an assistant captain, the senior from St. Louis is coming off a very productive year. Strong defensively and solid on his skates, the heady center anchored one of the top lines in ACHA hockey as a junior. He’ll be looking to be even more productive at both ends of the ice in his final year of collegiate competition. “Dave is a terrific, mature student who is vital to the success of the team because he is good in so many important and underrated areas of the game,” said Adrahtas.

ADAM KEASEY

Coach Comments:

This Kalamazoo, MI native authored a superb freshman year during the 2010-11 season, and was recognized as an ACHA All-Rookie team member. One of the country’s leading scorers as a defenseman, Montague possesses a deadly shot from the point and quickness with his stick that set him apart from other blueliners. “As good as he was last year, we feel Andrew will continue to improve,” said Asst. Coach Berman. “There’s no reason he can’t reach the All-American level at some point with RMU.”.

Beginning his second year at RMU, the Tower Lakes, Il native is looking to expand his role on the team after making his mark as a penalty-killing specialist and shutdown forward. Often chosen to be on the ice when protecting a lead late in the game, Melone has also shown a scoring touch from the slot. “Geno brings a level of character to the team that any coach would want,” said Adrahtas. “He’s a great skater who loves to be at the rink.

The rangey power forward from Rochester Hills, MI comes to RMU as a freshman expected to play an important role in the team’s success. Pegged as a defensive specialist while in junior hockey, the staff expects to see some offensive contribution as well. “Tom needs to take the next step as a player by gaining some more confidence in his skill set,” said Adrahtas. “We believe he’s going to be a very good prototypical power forward before too long.”

One of the rare true freshmen to be logging minutes at the ACHA Div I level, this highly skilled native of Naperville, IL made the jump to RMU directly from AA hockey. A brilliant skater with great offensive instincts, the coaching staff feels they have a player who will reach All Star status in time. “Will reminds me of Brian Leetch, who was one of the all-time greats,” said Adrahtas. “His skill outweighs his size, and he does things on the ice that can’t be taught.

Returning for his senior year, Feferman was the consummate team player for RMU during the 2010-11 campaign, winning in clutch performances while backing up All Star senior Dan Venet. His competitive approach in practice assures his readiness for any game as well as his growth as a goalie. “Marcus will compete for game time this year,” said Adrahtas,”and he has the capability to be a number one goalie in the ACHA.”

NUNEZ

Coaches Comments:

A transfer from Davenport University, this 5’8, 180 lb. sophomore goalie is known for his quickness and competitiveness. A veteran of junior hockey, Petrak played behind teams of varying strengths, and those experiences prepared him very well for the challenges of college hockey. “Tony is a goalie capable of winning games by himself,” said Coach Adrahtas. ‘We have great confidence that he’s capable of playing at an All Star level before his time here is over.”

Extremely quick and athletic, DiCristifaro put up extremely impressive numbers at the junior level, his save percentage consistently above 91. “Andy’s going to play his share of games as a freshman,” said Adrahtas, “and we think he’s going to be an impact goalie each of his 4 years with us.”

The sophomore from Aurora,IL returns to Gold looking to carve a more expanded role for himself, and in the early going he has done just that. Solid in the middle or on the right side, Nick brings grit to the game on the forecheck and along the wall, but also has a deceivingly good offensive knack for getting shots on goal. “Nick was in a tough situation last year, often not knowing when he was going to be in the line-up,” said Berman. “But he handled it well, and that has paid off with more chances this year to make a name for himself.”

Coach Comments:

Another of the elite sophomore defensemen that RMU boasts, the tall native of McChesney Park, IL has learned to use his size, reach, and skating to become a true impact backliner. A mainstay on the power play as well, he has become one of the team’s best overall performers. “Zack is going to be our Chris Pronger,” said Berman. “He’s a defenseman that’s so tough to play against because he has a very high standard he holds himself to. He’s going to be an All Star for us.”

Kyle is a senior goaltender looking to make a big impact on the 2011-12 Eagles hockey team. His quickness and pure puck stopping ability make him one of the strongest goalies in the ACHA D2.

Zach is in his first season as a RMU Eagle. After taking some time away from the game, we are lucky to pick up such a dominating forward. Zach is one of the strongest players in the program and uses his physical strength to win battles all over the ice. We are looking for him to log a lot of ice time throughout the season and to put some “pop” in every game he appears in.

Whether it’s on the power play or even strength Anthony Iovino is a threat all over the ice. Speed combined with skill makes him a tough forward to handle. As a freshman, Anthony looks to have a good start to a great career as an RMU Eagles Hockey player.

Senior Captain Jason Slechta is a natural born leader. Jason is a dominant player on both sides of the puck. His work ethic and willingness to sacrifice everything to win makes him the one of the most dominate players in the ACHA. Look for Jason to lead this team to a winning season and provide mature, steady leadership all throughout.

Andrew is one of the Maroon Hockey teams most versatile players. He can play both offense and defense and is extremely valuable to the team’s success. As a captain, Andrew leads his Eagle teammates both on and off the ice. Look for this senior standout to raise his teams level of play with every team they face.

Kevin is one of the fastest skaters in the league. Combine that with a powerful, pin point accurate shot, and you have a very tough forward to defend. When Kevin is on the ice he is looking to attack the offensive zone at all times, so keep an eye on him whenever watching Maroon play.

Brian loves playing the game with a chip on his shoulder. His physical play has not won him too many friends on other teams but certainly endears him to his teammates. Great work ethic also defines his play plus his bubbly personality keeps his teammates laughing off the ice. An asset to our hockey program and fun to watch play the game.

Coach Comments:

This is a player whose heart and love for the game should be the way every player should be. His personality and humor are great to be around, and any coach should have been honored to have this young man on their team. Entering his senior year, all of us wish him a great final season here at RMU.

Ryan is an old-school style defensemen with a sparkling personality, which makes him a fan favorite whenever he takes the ice. He has gotten to know all the refs in the league as well because of their many conversations. He’s a tough player who stands up for his teammates and gives no quarter to the opposition.

Coaches Comments:

Josh Larusso enters his 3rd season on RMU White as a leading scorer his first two seasons. His offensive skills and physical play make him one of the toughest players to play against in the league. He has a natural “nose for the net” that cannot be taught. Josh will continue to work on harnessing his special talent to lead his team to victory.

Mollie is the spark that we were looking for to boost our offensive grind. Initially entering the program as a defenseman, Madden’s speed and great hustle impressed the coaching staff that made the decision to move her up to forward. During her playing career, she has made two appearances in the national championship tournament; once as a member of U14 Firebirds and last season with the U19 Alaska All-Stars. Mollie’s coachable attitude and determination are characteristics that will serve her well entering the competitive collegiate scene.

Rachel is an alumni of the San Jose Junior Sharks AAA and more recently a member of the ACHA’s Team USA which competed at the World University Games in Turkey in January 2011. Her defensive instincts combined with her improving offensive skills and deceptive moves, make her a presence to watch out for whenever she is on the ice. Rachel’s speed and competitive nature are key aspects she brings to the team.

The third Alaskan to join our team in as many years, Katha comes to us from the South Anchorage Mighty Moose U19s. Tall and rangy, Katha is one of a number of recruits who bring some size and strength to the Eagles’ line- up.

Coach Comments:

Kasey’s maturity, character and leadership will stand her in good stead as she has already become one of our go-to defensemen in special teams’ situations, on top of logging plenty of minutes of regular play. Her speed and toughness are what gives this defenseman with great hockey sense the edge over her competitors every time.

Becky’s physical style and determination combined with an excellent shot from the point – strong work ethic and whatever it takes attitude are only some of the qualities that helped our decision in selecting her as one of our assistant captains for this season.

A stellar collegiate career thus far with the Eagles, having established herself as one of the premier defensemen in the ACHA, Cassie is rarely beaten and when she is caught out of position she can recover easily with her long stride and savvy play. We are counting on her leadership and character to take this team to the next level for her senior year.

ANNA

SALVAGGIO

Returning to the Chicagoland area as a transfer student from NCAA Salve Regina University (R.I), we are excited to have a player of Jessica’s skill and maturity to join our team. Jessica is an excellent playmaker with great ice awareness and good hands. Already a model player for the RMU women’s program, this quiet leader is the type of person you would love to have on your team. She will be a key replacement of some of the offensive power we lost to graduation. Prior to her collegiate hockey career she played for the Chicago Young Americans.

Staci has wasted no time proving herself to us with several outstanding performances between the pipes already this season. A hybrid goalie, with good size, speed and lightning fast reflexes, her team knows they can count on her when the game is on the line. Her strong work ethic does not go unnoticed.

Coach Comments:

Marianne had a stellar career with the Victory Honda AAA U19’s prior to attending Robert Morris. As a freshman, she immediately made an impact on the Eagle’s blue line with her intensity and skill. At 5’9”, her physical presence and strength can easily outmuscle any opponent in the corners or in front of our net. In only her second year, she assumes a key role for the Eagle’s defense. Her competitive demeanor is an important part of what it takes to win another national title. Look out for her booming slap shot from the point as she is a definite threat in powerplay situations as well.

ALLISON

GIBSON

Coach Comments:

After an outstanding freshman season with the Eagles tallying 32 assists in 35 games, this gritty Canadian forward continues to get the job done at both ends of the ice. Becky is one of our strongest centermen and diggers along the boards. Before RMU, Becky was multi-sport star for Assumption College School competing in rugby and track & field. She captained both the ACS rugby and hockey teams which lead us to believe the success that awaits in throughout her college career.

Her dedication, contributions and sacrifices say a great deal what type of a teammate and person she is. Without question, the team’s most improved player from last fall – “Zippy” continuing to work on her skill and athleticism over the summer, shows us the commitment she has to the program and her desire to play for the love of the game. She is a strong offensive force with good hands and a hard shot. Her size and strength are advantageous characteristics in hockey that we like to capitalize on. Zippy can often be seen causing chaos in front of the other team’s goalie.

Ramey has continued to evolve into one of the greatest players in RMU women’s hockey history. During her junior year she tallied enough points to make her the fourth-leading in the program. She holds All-Tournament and All-American honors and was most recently a member of the ACHA’s Team USA at the World University games last year in Turkey. This year a cocaptain, her relentless determination, skill, and passion for the game sets the standard for everyone around her. With great moves, speed and her vision on the ice makes her one of our most dangerous weapons.
