Rogan began his hockey career at an early age with his dad bringing him to St. John’s for “a skate” on Sunday mornings. When the Southern Shore Arena opened Rogan was one of the first to lace his skates for "The Breakers". He was an accomplished hockey player and it certainly can be said he didn’t like losing.
Rogan played through the system from a Squirt on up and was always a part of our annual provincial HNL tournaments. His work ethic on the ice was second to none and this was shown by his many Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player and other awards and medals he received during his years in the minor system. Rogan was a great athlete and along with hockey he participated in soccer, softball, and track. He won several prestigious awards as a tennis player.
At the time of his passing Rogan had just competed in his first stint as a competitor in the St Johns Regatta. Rogan was truly a superb athlete and a fine young man who was surely destined for a great future in whatever field he chose to pursue. Unfortunately, this was not to be as, he was taken much too early in life in a tragic motor vehicle accident.
