EAST ISLIP, N.Y. – The Atlantic Youth Hockey League and the Long Island Royals are pleased to announce that alumnus forward Robert Mastrosimone (East Islip, N.Y.) has committed to Boston University for the 2019-20 season.

A longtime member of the Royals organization, Mastrosimone advanced to the prestigious Shattuck-St. Mary’s program for the 2015-16 season.

“I am very proud of my commitment to Boston University,” Mastrosimone said. “But I understand it is just the beginning and I have a lot of work to do to reach my goals and I look forward to representing the AYHL when I suit up for the Terriers.”

Mastrosimone spent his Squirt Minor though Bantam Major seasons in the AYHL, amassing an outstanding 325 points (168G 157A) in 179 regular season games. The East Islip, New York native received All-Star recognition in 2015.

“The AYHL is a great league and the Long Island Royals are a great organization,” Mastrosimone added. “They have both, along with my teammates, been a huge part in my development in becoming the player I am today.”

In addition to his time in the AYHL, Mastrosimone spent his Mite seasons with the Royals program and won a New York State Amateur Hockey Association championship, and an AYHL title, in 2013.

“I am so proud of Robert for getting a commitment to play college hockey for Boston University but I am even prouder of the young man he has become,” commented Robert Mastrosimone, Sr. “Hockey is such a great sport, it teaches so many life lessons, it builds character, it teaches one how to lose and how to win with class. Hockey has helped Robert become a humble young man with a great work ethic who will take nothing for granted and continue to pursue his dreams playing the game he loves.”

With Shattuck, the dynamic forward has continued to display his offensive skills, scoring 27 goals, with 24 assists, in 23 games.
