The hometown kid is doing big things in Columbus, on and off the ice.
Roslovic will likely be the Blue Jackets' number-one center, but he is also making an impact in the community. The Columbus native has created Rosie's Gear For Goals event, which will raise money for young, underprivileged hockey players to get the equipment that they need.
"I've been wanting to do this for a while," Roslovic told Jeff Svoboda. "Even when I was in Winnipeg, I had always wanted to come back and give back to Columbus and Columbus youth hockey, and the reason why we're holding this event is to raise money for the awareness of the sport. It's not necessarily for kids who play the sport and already have the means to do it. It's more for kids who never even may have heard about it or don't have any equipment to play it."
The event will occur Sunday, August 21st (tomorrow) at Columbus TopGolf from 12:30 to 3:30 ET. To make a donation or buy a ticket, you can visit the event page by clicking here.
"It's a Sunday afternoon, and I think it'll be a cool, fun interactive event," Roslovic said. "I know some of the Blue Jackets guys are going to be there. We are going to have some fun people there. It'll be cool to see how it's an everyone knows everyone kind of thing. I know how small of a town Columbus can be, so I think it'll be great."
