Jaycee Gebhard is well into her third year with Robert Morris' University Hockey Program. Originally from Plenty, Gebhard has proven to be a core part of the team in scoring and leadership.

Earlier this season she was named Assistant Captain for Robert Morris. 

"It's an honour to be a junior and get to be in an a leadership role. It is more responsibility and you have a different role on the team rather than just playing hockey, you look out for everybody and make sure the teams jelling," Gebhard said.

She also leads the team in scoring with 14 goals and 18 assistants so far this season, for a total of 32 points.

"I think it's just, I have a lot of confidence this year. Every game, I've felt I've got a little bit better." She also said a lot of her ability to score is based on her teammates, "Obviously, my line mates as well. You can't score without your line mates. A lot of my success is attributed to them too."

Gebhard's scoring abilities were shown in this past weekend's two game series with Penn State, where Robert Morris won 3 - 2 and 4 - 1.

In their game, Gebhard was able to pull out a goal and assist, to help her team to victory. In the second game, she led in scoring with three goals.

"Pretty much every team in this league is good, all the goalies are really good." Gebhard said her team was able to capitalize for the series win, "I was able to score, and get a couple more goals. It's knowing my skills and using them against different teams. Penn State is a very defensive team so we knew it was going to take a lot to score and capitalize on every chance."

Gebhard was featured in the second game's highlight reel.

Gebhard said the team has high hopes for this season, "As a team, we want to win our conference and the ultimate goal is win a national championship. We think that's not out of reach the way we've been playing against the top teams."

In terms of personal goals, she said just wants to improve and continue to be a big part of the team, "To produce every game and help our team win. Beating my overall record from freshman year is a goal for myself."

Robert Morris will continue their season with back to back games against Minnesota on December 7th and 8th.
