The Razorback Hockey team is pleased to announce that Christophe Jobin has formally signed to play at Arkansas. A 5’9″ goaltender from Flower Mound, Texas, Jobin played last season for the NAPHL AAA HC Dallas program and, prior to that, completed two seasons with the Texas Tornado 16U program.
During his career, Christophe has amassed several significant accolades for his goaltending including participation on two teams that made it to USA Hockey Nationals. He won the goaltender skills competition at the 2010 USA Hockey Nationals, was selected to participate at the USA Hockey Summer Festival in 2011, and played in the NAPHL All-Star game when he was just sixteen.
Said Jobin, “I decided on the University of Arkansas because I am impressed by how the program is run by Coach Gallini and his staff. The amount of success the program has already reached is very impressive.” He added, “at Arkansas, I feel I can grow as a hockey player and as a young man. The players I’ve met have already made me feel like a member of the team from the get go.”
Since 2009, the Arkansas hockey program has amassed an overall record of 161-48-4, including three trips to the Division III National Tournament and five SECHC conference playoff tournament championships. The program will field two teams next season–one at the Division I level (WCHL) and one at the Division III level (SECHC).
