Kenai River goalie Goor makes NCAA commitment
April 18, 2017
The Kenai River Brown Bears, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that goaltender Robbie Goor has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at Gustavus Adolphus College.
Goor, 20, just completed his second and final season of playing in the NAHL. The native of Anoka, Minnesota, began the season with the Austin Bruins, but was traded to Kenai River in October. Goor (6’3/210) ended up posting a 10-22-1 record in 41 games played during the 2016-17 regular season. That included a 3.58 goals against average and an 89.7% save percentage.
Goor was also selected to and played in the 2017 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the Midwest Division team, where he stopped 30 of 33 shots at the event.
After playing at Anoka High School in Minnesota from 2011-14, Goor broke into junior hockey in the NA3HL with the Twin City Steel in 2014-15. A year later, he began the season playing for the Granite City Lumberjacks in the NA3HL, but was quickly called up to the NAHL to play for the Austin Bruins, where he stayed the remainder of the regular season.
“Robbie came to the team with a great attitude and work ethic this season. His leadership and hard work will propel him to a great college career. We wish him the best of luck in his future,” said Brown Bears head coach Jeff Worlton.
“I am very thankful for the opportunity that the Kenai River Brown Bears gave me this year. I would like to thank the organization and coaching staff for all their hard work. I would also like to thank my family and friends for all the support. I am very excited to call Gustavus Adolphus College my home for the next four years. I cannot wait to start working with Coach Peterson and his staff,” said Goor.
