An alum of the IIHF gold medal U20 Team Mexico, Cobo also played for the Dallas Ice Jets organization before his time with the Snipers.  Said Cobo, “I chose the Arkansas program because it shows a lot of potential where I can develop my hockey skills and play very competitive hockey.”  He added, “although I had D3 NCAA offers I think Arkansas can offer more to my development through their coaching and the players currently on the team.”

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).

The Division I schedule was recently released.  You can view it here.  You can also read more about Cobo’s commitment to Arkansas here.

All home games are played at The Jones Center for Families in Springdale.
