The St. Louis Bandits have announced that forward Josh Rabbani has committed to RPI (ECACHL) for the coming fall.
Rabbani, from Woodland Hills, Calif., struck for 20 goals for 48 points in 57 regular-season games for the Bandits. He was also a plus-27.
"Josh has always had to battle the he-doesn't-have-quick-enough-feet label from his critics,” said former Bandits coach-GM Jon Cooper. “But what they overlook is that he has the quickest stick and the quickest shot and is an absolute warrior down low.”
In the postseason, the 20-year-old totaled 12 points on four goals in 11 games for the Robertson Cup champions.
“RPI got a steal in Josh Rabbani,” Cooper added. “We couldn’t have won the Robertson Cup without him.”
