CHICAGO - Robert Morris Illinois Men's Gold Hockey forward Gavin Burbach (JR/Newberry, Mich.) has been named to the team representing the United States in the 28th Winter World University Games to be held in Almaty, Kazahkstan from January 29th to February 8th in 2017. Sean Hogan, the head coach of Ohio University, made the announcement.  

Burbach was an ACHA All-Rookie and CSCHL All-League selection his freshman year, and was the team's leading scorer in each of his first two years. A left-handed shot, Burbach is equally comfortable on the right or left wing.

"Coach Hogan was looking for someone with scoring touch and grit in his game, and that's a perfect description of Gavin," said RMU Head Coach Chico Adrahtas. "We're thrilled that he received this honor. He has really worked to improve the defensive side of his game since coming here, and competes in every practice like it's a game. He's a terrific example for his teammates in what to bring to the rink every day."

Burbach, an assistant captain with the Eagles, is just the fourth RMU player selected in the 17-year program history to participate in the games. He joins the list of Rudy Moser, Ryan Tomassoni, and Gehrett Sargis.
