Rockets Defenseman Set to Join Minutemen in the Fall of 2018

Marc Del Gaizo, a defenseman for the New Jersey Rockets, has committed to the University of Massachusetts-Amherst for the Fall of 2018. Del Gaizo has played in 29 of 34 games so far this season for the Rockets, scoring 5 goals and dishing out 14 assists.

Sean Cromarty is the head coach for the New Jersey Rockets, and is excited about what the future holds for his '99 defenseman.

“I’m proud of Marc and all the hard work he has put in,” said Cromarty. “This is my second year coaching him and the growth in his game this season has been huge. Playing in the EHL as a 16-year-old is by no means an easy task and it’s not for everyone. In Marc’s case, it was the best thing for his development and he has flourished with the extra ice, video and training that junior hockey provides.”
