Rockets forward Jacob Bergeron has been working hard to become a solid two-way player for the Golden Rockets. After splitting last season with the Rockets and Grand Forks, Bergeron has been enjoying the solid play of the Rockets this year.

“It has been pretty good. I have no complaints,” he said. “Everyone came back this fall with a different attitude. We also have a great group of rookies who have been fantastic this year.”

Bergeron has been very impressed with the rookies. “Normally it takes a while for rookies to pick up the play in this league. These guys have got right into it.”

As for his own game, Bergeron has been working hard to become a great all around player this season.

“I have been trying to round off my game a lot. I have not been scoring as much as I was last year but I am better at all ends of the ice,” he said.  “I had a talk with Ty (head coach of the Rockets, Ty Davidson) about what I am doing in the future. I am trying to be a big part of the team and doing everything I can to win this year.”

Bergeron also added that the depth of the team has been amazing this year.

“We can put our fourth line out against anyone and not worry about it. We have one of the best fourth lines in the league,” he said. “We have been playing well and James Leonard really stepped up and now having Cole Henson back we have two really good goalies.”

Beregron has 17 goals so far this season along with 18 assists.

He is hoping to keep his hot play as of late going and hopes to hit 30 goals before the season ends.

“I want to keep playing well, but scoring goals is not as important as getting the two points,” he said.
