Leah Rubinshteyn Commits to Dartmouth (NCAA D-I)

By Chris Baer 11/17/2020, 12:15pm EST

19U Forward chooses Big Green

West Chester, PA – The Philadelphia Jr Flyers Girls are excited to announce the commitment of Leah Rubinshteyn to Dartmouth College (NCAA D-I) for the 2022-23 season.  Leah is the 3rd Ivy-League commit; 9th NCAA D-I commit; and 18th NCAA commit on the current 19U T1 team.  Located in Hanover, NH, the Dartmouth Big Green play in the ECAC Hockey Conference and will be led by first-year Head Coach, Morgan Illikainen.

Rubinshteyn is in her 2nd season with the Jr Flyers program and is a native of Summit, NJ.  She is a high-compete player that battles for the puck every time she touches the ice – whether in a game, or in a practice.  Rubinshteyn has a great work ethic and is extremely aggressive; she makes hard, crisp passes and has a heavy, accurate shot. She is a powerful skater with quick feet and hands.

19U Coach Chris Baer said, “Leah has a D-I work ethic and skill set… we are excited to see how much she will continue to improve over this next year and a half.  She earns everything she gets, and we know she is very deserving of this opportunity and will make an immediate impact for the Big Green”.

On her commitment, Rubinshteyn said, “I chose Dartmouth because I loved the overall atmosphere of the school and it felt like the perfect fit for me from an academic and athletic perspective. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my family, friends, and coaches.”

Congrats to Leah! Dartmouth Big Green ’26.




Alyssa Wruble Commits to University of Maine (NCAA D-I)

By Chris Baer 11/11/2020, 12:45pm EST

19U Forward heading to Hockey East

West Chester, PA – The Philadelphia Jr Flyers Girls are thrilled to announce the commitment of 2021 forward, Alyssa Wruble, to the University of Maine (NCAA D-I).  The Black Bears are a member of the Hockey East Conference, along with: Boston College, Boston University, UConn, Holy Cross, Merrimack, UNH, Northeastern, Providence, and Vermont.

Wruble is currently a winger for the 19U T1 team and is in her 2nd season with the Jr Flyers.  She attended the 2019 USA Hockey 16/17 National Development Camp in St. Cloud, MN.  Wruble is an elite speedster that competes hard in all 3 zones and is always a threat on the ice.  Her skating ability and aggression keeps defenders on their heels as she pushes the pace up ice.  Wruble is a high-motor player that plays with grit, making her excellent on the forecheck, backcheck, and penalty kill.

On her commitment, Wruble said “I chose The University of Maine because as soon as I stepped onto campus, it felt like a second home. I felt that it was the right fit for me all around - academically and athletically. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my friends, family, and coaches”.

Congrats and good luck to Alyssa! University of Maine – Class of 2025.




Maddie Jukus Commits to SUNY Morrisville (NCAA D-III)

By Jr Flyers Girls 10/29/2020, 2:45pm EDT

19AA Defenseman to play in SUNYAC

Congratulations to 19AA defenseman, Maddie Jukus, on her commitment to SUNY Morrisville.

Maddie will be studying business and chose Morrisville "because of the community, academic, and athletic aspects of the school".

When speaking of Maddie, 19AA Coach Kaminsky said that she, "Plays well positionally and is willing to defend aggressively and physically when needed.  She has the willingness and ability to carry the puck up the ice when necessary.  Additionally, she has a strong and accurate shot from the point.  Maddie is very coachable, has a terrific work ethic, and has a bright future ahead of her!"

Congrats and good luck to Maddie! SUNY Morrisville Mustangs - Class of 2025.



Syd Bradley Commits to Alvernia (NCAA D-III)

By Chris Baer 10/15/2020, 3:00pm EDT

Long-time Jr Flyer commits to Golden Wolves

The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are proud to announce the commitment of an original Jr Flyer Girl, Syd Bradley, to Alvernia University (NCAA D-III). Alvernia is a 2nd year program, located in Reading, PA that competes in the Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC), along with Kings, Wilkes, Lebanon Valley, and Stevenson.

Bradley is currently a Center for the 19U T1 team and is in her 6th season with the program.  During her time, she has been a leader on and off the ice, wearing a captains’ letter to 14U Nationals in Marlborough, MA. and to 16U Nationals in Irvine, CA.

Bradley is a solid two-way player that possesses a high hockey IQ.  In the offensive zone, she is at her best when playing below the dots, as she protects the puck and works along the walls extremely well.  She also has great instincts and finishing ability around the net, which lead to many of her goals.

Of the commitment, Bradley said, “I chose Alvernia because it had a great atmosphere and felt like home. I feel like I will fit right in with the team and coaching staff. I’d like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for all their help and support throughout the years.”

Congrats, Syd!!



Makayla Javier Commits to RMU (NCAA D-I)

By Chris Baer 10/12/2020, 10:45am EDT

West Chester, PA – The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers Girls are thrilled to announce the commitment of Makayla “MJ” Javier to Robert Morris University (NCAA D-I) for 2022-23.  The RMU Colonials play in the College Hockey America (CHA) Conference, with: Lindenwood, Mercyhurst, Penn State, RIT, and Syracuse.

Javier is in her 3rd season with the Jr Flyers and serves as an Alternate Captain on the 19U Tier I team.  The right-handed defenseman plays a strong 200-foot game, emphasized by a high-compete level, on and off the puck.  Her feet and hands make her confident in making plays under pressure, as she reads the play well.  Javier’s blend of speed, skill, power, and physicality make her a top-tier defenseman that can play in any situation.

Jr Flyers Girls GM/Coach, Chris Baer, noted “MJ had so much natural ability when she came to us a few years back.  She was powerful and raw, but we have enjoyed watching her develop into such a consistent and reliable two-way defender… What has really allowed her to make that next step is her increased understanding of the game.  The improvements she has made with her hockey IQ and puck support have helped turn her into an elite defenseman.”

Javier announced her commitment through social media, stating, “Honored to announce my verbal commitment to play D1 hockey at Robert Morris University.  I want to thank my friends, family, teammates, and coaches for helping get to where I am today #gocolonials”.

Congrats, MJ!  RMU Class of 2026.
