Congrats to former Rogers Youth and High School player Matt Hellickson, who was selected in the 7th round by the New Jersey Devils this week!
Matt will be skating for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish this fall after a great season with the Sioux City Musketeers in 2016-17. Matt was named an alternate captain for the Sioux City Musketeers after having been selected first overall in the 2016 USHL Entry Draft. In the 2016-17 regular season, he scored six goals and recorded 22 assists for a total of 28 points, which ranked ninth overall among USHL defensemen. He twice earned USHL Defenseman of the Week honors in 2016-17 and helped lead Sioux City to the Clark Cup Final.
Hellickson also won a bronze medal at the 2016 Under-18 World Junior Championships with Team USA. He also contributed two assists in four games to help Team USA to a first-place finish at the Under-18 Four Nations Tournament in Monthey, Switzerland in 2015.
Congratulations, Matt, the Rogers Hockey community is proud to call you one of our own and we can't wait to see what you do next!
Thank you, Sam Bernard, for everything you did for our High School hockey program.
You will be missed!!
