Worcester Railers HC sign rookie forward Grant Jozefek for 2021-22 season

Jozefek won three Beanpot Championships at Northeastern University

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Worcester Railers Hockey Club (@RailersHC), proud ECHL (@ECHL) affiliate of the New York Islanders (@NYIslanders), and Railers HC General Manager and Head Coach David Cunniff officially announced today that the club has signed rookie forward Grant Jozefek (@Grantzky25) to an ECHL contract for the 2021-22 season.

Grant Jozefek enters his rookie season after spending the last five years (2016-21) at Northeastern University where he tallied 76 points (29 goals, 47 assists) in 134 career games. Jozefek served as an assistant captain this past season where he ranked second on the team in assists (12) while finishing the year producing 15 points (three goals, 12 assists). Along with being a three-time Beanpot Champion (2017, 2018, and 2020), he also helped the Huskies capture the Hockey East Tournament Championship in 2019.

Prior to college hockey, the 5-foot-10, 185lb forward played two seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Lincoln Stars where he accumulated 79 points (25 goals, 54 assists). During his second season with the Stars in 2015-16, the Chester, NJ native led the team in goals (21) and finished second on the team in points (53).

“Grant is a player that will fit into our lineup nicely,” said Cunniff. “He is a strong speedy skater that will be an offensive threat every time he steps on the ice.”

The Railers now have two players signed for the 2021-22 season as Grant Jozefek joins Jordan Lavallee-Smotherman as the first two signees. All player signings are brought to you by Cintron World, with more announcements expected over the next few weeks.

The Worcester Railers look forward to welcoming fans back to the DCU Center for their Home Opener on October 23, 2021 vs. the Maine Mariners! For all information regarding the upcoming season, visit RailersHC.com or call 508-365-1750 to secure your seats.
