Robbie DeMontis Commits to Yale

Press Release

MUSKEGON, Michigan (October 30th) – The Muskegon Lumberjacks are proud to announce that Forward Robbie DeMontis has made his college commitment to play for the Bulldogs of Yale University out of the ECAC following his junior career.

DeMontis, the Kleinburg, Ontario native, was drafted by the Lumberjacks in the 19th-round (278th overall) during the 2013 USHL Phase Two Draft and is currently in his first season with Muskegon.  This season, DeMontis has tallied six assists in 12 regular season games played.

“The coaching staff (at Yale) is unbelievable, and they are focused on helping their players develop and get better.  That is something that is very important to me,” said DeMontis.  “Also, the opportunity to play for a great hockey program as well as getting a world class education was something I couldn’t pass up.  I couldn’t be more excited to join Yale’s program, and I think it’s the perfect fit for me.”

Before arriving in Muskegon, DeMontis spent last season with The Hill Academy in Vaughan, Ontario totaling 122 points (47 goals and 75 assists) to go along with a plus-76 rating in 64 games played.  Prior to playing with The Hill Academy, DeMontis played for the Vaughan Kings Minor Midget AAA Team during the 2011-12 season recording 41 points (14 goals and 27 assists) in 47 games played.
