To kick off the 2014/15 season, weâ€™re going to be running a series of posts we call the â€œMeet The Rookiesâ€ series. As the name implies, weâ€™re going to pose a few quick questions to the players who are new to the club and Vanderbilt this yearÂ to help players, coaches, parents, and fans get to know the new club members. NextÂ upÂ -Â freshman goalieÂ Jake Rubinstein from Naperville, Illinois.Â
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Jake Rubinstein. I’m from the suburbs of Chicago. I played goalie for my high school, Waubonsie Valley, where we won the Illinois state ice hockey championship my senior year and I was a two-timeÂ IHSHL all-star two years in a row. I am currently studying biology here at Vanderbilt.
What are yourÂ Vanderbilt hockey goals?
Simple. Kick some ***.
What is your favorite hockey moment?
Winning the title in the United Center, home of the Chicago Blackhawks, my senior year. It was awesome to play such a big game in an NHL arena, and it was great to put upÂ a shutout in the win.
What was your best “celly” in your hockey career?
I did the Lambeau Leap into myÂ bench.
Why did you start playing?
Not sure other than to say that hockey isÂ the best game in the world.
