Ottawa, ON – The Central Canada Hockey League and Rockland Nationals are pleased to announce that goaltender Joseph Giacobbo has committed to NCAA Utica College for the 2019-20 season.

The 1998 born Deptford, NJ native posted a 27-12-2- record this season with Rockland, sporting a 2.32 GAA, .918 SV%, and 3 shutouts. For his efforts, the Nationals named him their Most Valuable Player award recipient. 

“He is a terrific kid and ambassador for our team,” said Nationals General Manager and Head Coach Dan Sauve. “He is always calm and poised in net and could always be counted on to give us a chance  to win every game. He was a rock between the pipes for us, he was our MVP, and helped our young team gain lots of confidence early in the season. He is also an awesome person in the dressing room and was a great leader. We wish him all the best of luck in his new chapter at Utica College.”
