COACHES VIEW:
"Rob has expanded his game each year; although he is used mostly inside on the crease, he is expected to rotate off more this spring. Very savvy inside on the crease, and should be very productive working with brother Jack, Max VanArsdale, and Matt Mackrides behind the net." - Coach Thiel
