Colonials in the Community
Being a Colonial means having a passion for hockey and promoting it in the community. The Colonials serve as role models for younger players in the Pittsburgh area. The connection between the team and the community is a special part of being a Colonial.
RMU players are involved in the community. Players volunteer at clinics and interact with the community at various events. This mentorship builds a special bond and the youth players become big fans attending RMU games to support their idols.
Colonial Dyllan Lubbesmeyer was a nominee (one of 6 nationally) for the 2021 hockey humanitarian award. Dyllan dedicated his time off the ice to numerous charitable endeavors including the GoRuck Tough Challenger and Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K. Here is an article on Dyllan and his efforts.
Even after their RMU careers end, many alumni stay involved in the program. From attending games, to participating at events, there is a strong sense of comradery amongst the RMU Men’s Ice Hockey program.
