TBJ Captain Vlaisavljevich Heading To Brookings

 
Ryan Vlaisavljevich, Captain of the Tampa Bay Juniors Elite Team last season, will be playing with the Brookings Blizzard of the NAHL this season.  Ryan (defensemen) led TBJ d-men with a +3.  He also had 8 goals and 21 assist on the season.
 
"This is a great opportunity for Ryan," said Head Coach Garrett Strot,
"Ryan is a player that bought into what we wanted last season and it showed in his play throughout the season and especially into the tryouts of tier 2 teams."
 
"The opportunity Brett and Garrett gave me last season, I couldn't have experienced anywhere else."  said Ryan, "In order for my game to progress, I needed to play a lot and not be afraid to make mistakes. They helped to really work with me and make me a better player in all phases of my game.  They pushed me to become better each day.  I can't thank them enough for all they did for me."
 
"We are excited for Ryan," said Brett Strot, "He deserves this opportunity because of his commitment and work ethic.  This is what our program is about, helping players get to the highest level they can and not just play but be a player."
 
TBJ wishes Ryan good luck in this next step of his hockey career!!
