Northeastern is located in Boston, MA. and they play in the prestigious Hockey East Conference. Robitzer will attend Northeastern beginning in the fall of 2023.

She elevates everyone around her with her work ethic and passion for the sport. Her ability to read plays, combined with her exceptional skating skills, puts her in a good position for every save.”

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.”
