NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – The Texas Brahmas added some offensive punch to the line-up today with the tendering of Long Island Jr. Royals’ Zack Andersen.
Despite the Huntington Station, New York native having a shortened season due to injury, he still found a way to put up points. In 18 regular season games with the Royals, the 6-foot-1, 200 pound winger notched ten goals and 18 assists. He kept that pace up in the post-season, popping five more points in just three games.
“Andersen shows the qualities we are looking for in a hockey player both on and off the ice and he should be a good fit for this organization,” said head coach Al Rooney. “He has size, sees the ice well, and has a good touch around the net. We look forward to watching his development in the Brahma organization. We certainly look forward to seeing him at our Pre-Draft Camp in Chicago.”
Andersen follows the footsteps of Brahmas forward Anthony Koslow, who also played for the Royals in the MJHL prior to signing with the Brahmas. The 17-year old forward has three years of junior hockey eligibility and with his style of play being a power forward, we see him developing into a player who will flourish at the highest level of the Brahmas organization.
"The sky's the limit for Zack. He may start his Brahma career with my team, but I don't expect it to end there," Rooney said. "Zack has a bright future in hockey."
Expect more announcements soon as the Texas Brahmas continue to build their roster for the 2015-16 season.
