Trovato on Today Show; Pereira at the Combine; Vitek Retires

Former Minuteman Peter Trovato was featured yesterday, Memorial Day, on NBC’s Today Show highlighting his work on the Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund, the charity he founded.  The Mass Soldiers Legacy Fund helps pay for college for the children of those who have been lost fighting overseas.  The feature also mentions he’ll be starting business school this fall at Harvard.  Good luck in grad school, Peter, and thank you for your hard work and great representation of the university.


Mike Pereira finished in the Top 10 in the following tests at the NHL Combine:

Anaerobic fitness average power – 10th
Sum of 6 skin folds – 2nd (I swear to God that’s the test)
% of body fat – 2nd
Vertical jump with no pause – 2nd

Obviously it looks like speed and athleticism will be his strengths as he’s in great shape.  I’ll keep searching to find more post-combine thoughts on Pereira.


Timmy Vitek is retiring from hockey to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become a police officer.  Vitek won two SPHL championships in his minor league career.
