Executive

Bob Rotondo » General Manager

Bob Rotondo is a certified hockey lifer. In 1959 he entered St. John's Prep in Danvers as a freshman netminder. After playing for two years at St. John's, he finished his high school career at St. Mary's in Lynn as a league All-Star. He then attended Providence College and played for the Friars.

In the early 1990s, he joined up with the Boston Junior Terriers of the old Metropolitan Boston Hockey League. That led to gigs with the Eastern Junior Hockey League, the New England College Development League, and the Tyngsboro/Nashua Huskies.

Rotondo started the Northeast Women's Hockey League (NEWHL). That was the beginning of women's hockey in the Boston area. This was the only place that women came to play. It had players from junior high and high school coming to play. Rotondo and a few partners started to cobble together NEWHL All-Star teams and began playing in a number of regional tournaments.

While Rotondo immersed himself in the business of running leagues, club teams and hockey rinks, he also was making a name for himself as a goalie instructor. Rotondo established Puckstoppers Goaltending and opened his own synthetic ice training facility.

Rotondo was also one of the founders of the East Coast Wizards. He eventually went out on his own and became the driving force behind the Boston Shamrocks.

The Boston Shamrocks are clearly the apple of Rotondo's eye. The elite all-female Shamrocks remain his pride and joy. The list of Shamrock alumni who have gone on to play at some 50 Division 1 and Division 3 colleges is impressive, playing at programs such as Amherst, Boston University, Clarkson, Harvard, Maine, New Hampshire, Notre Dame, Providence, St. Anselm, and Yale, to just name a few.

Asked what he'd like his legacy to be, once he finally walks away from the game, Rotondo thinks for a moment, and then says, “Just that I helped a bunch of kids go to school, and become great women.”
