Drumheller, AB: December 12, 2018. The Drumheller Dragons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are very excited to announce that brothers Scout and Roc Truman have committed to attend and play for the U Mass Lowell River Hawks of the NCAA Hockey East Conference.
From Lethbridge Alberta, the Truman brothers are playing in their first full season of junior hockey. Sixteen-year-old Scout is a 5’10 left winger who through 22 games has scored 3 goals and added 13 assists for 16 points. The skilled play making forward is the youngest player in the AJHL this season and played last season in the CSSHL with Yale Hockey Academy.
Roc Truman is a 5’11 seventeen-year-old center who through 29 games this season has scored 13 goals and added 12 assists for 25 points in his first year with the Dragons. Roc is a shooter who uses his size and grit to play effectively around the net. Roc also competed in the CSSHL with the Yale Hockey Academy Prep team located in Abbotsford British Columbia.
U Mass Lowell River Hawks are coached by Norm Bazin who holds an overall record of 206-118-28 over 11 seasons of college hockey. Assistant Coach Juliano Pagliero is in his first season with the River Hawks and was instrumental during the recruitment process which earned commitments from the Truman brothers. The Drumheller Dragons would like to thank Juliano and the U Mass Coaching staff for their recruiting efforts and belief in the young Dragon prospects.
On behalf of the Drumheller Dragons Hockey Team, we would like to congratulate Roc, Scout and the Truman family on securing their academic and athletic futures in the NCAA with the River Hawks and look forward too many more contributions both on and off the ice in the years ahead.
