June 10, 2019 — The 1Vision Sports and Entertainment Family is proud to announce that North Billerica, Massachusetts native Ross Olsson has joined the 1VSE family ahead of the upcoming 2019-20 professional hockey season.
Olsson, a 6’4”, 216-lbs forward signed with the Worcester Railers of the ECHL, joined the 1VSE family following a successful jump from his record-setting career with Endicott College (NCAA Division III) to professional hockey this spring. At the culmination of his senior year season at Endicott, the 24-year-old forward signed an amateur try-out deal with the ECHL’s Railers — and thanks to an impressive seven-game stint, during which Olsson recorded four points and picked up 16 PIM, he picked up a one -year deal to return to Worcester for the upcoming season.
The Massachusetts native didn’t take a traditional path to the pros, but has a story littered with impressive figures and accolades. After spending three years in the USHL, he took his services first to the NAHL and then the USPHL before experiencing a tremendous career bounce-back with Endicott’s men’s hockey team from 2015 to 2019. He put up a cumulative 134 points in 94 games, leading the school’s hockey program in all-time points (134) and assists (79) while finishing his four years with the school’s third-highest career goal total (55) and second-highest career PIM total (180).
Off the ice, Olsson showed tremendous initiative in the classroom, as well. He was a Commonwealth Coast Conference Academic All-Conference player for three consecutive years (2017, 2018, and 2019), an ACHA All-American Scholar in 2018, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management while maintaining his impressively consistent scoring pace for the hockey program. He interned with TSG Sports Group in the summer of 2016 and spent time volunteering for both the Miracle League and Habitat For Humanity, making the Dean’s List in Spring 2016 and earning a Joe Concannon Award Semifinalist nod in 2017.
Olsson’s seamless transition from NCAA Division III to the ECHL paves the way for an exciting hockey career moving forward, and 1VSE is thrilled to bring him on board to work with the company moving forward.
