NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – The Texas Brahmas secured 1998 goalie Brandon Perrone who won the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (MJHL) Goaltender of the Year. Perrone becomes the second player (forward Zack Anderson) of the Long Island Royals to sign a tender with the Brahmas for 2015-16.
Perrone (5'8/160) was amongst the league leaders in all goaltending statistics and he led the charge in net with a 2.51 GAA and .926 save percentage, while posting a 22-7-1 overall record. His play throughout the season earned the star netminder a number of accolades, including MJHL First-Team All-Star, All-Star game MVP and he was given the league's Goalie of the Year award.
"The chance to add a young, quality goaltender of this caliber to the Brahmas organization is something that we jumped at," Head Coach Al Rooney said. "His athleticism and his mobility around the crease is a strong point in his game added to the fact that he is a very strong puck handler, which will help the defense. With him being a '98 goaltender, we see him growing into something substantial with the Brahmas for years to come."
Perrone has four years of junior eligibility remaining and with a Goalie of the Year Award already under his belt, there is no telling just how high his ceiling can go.
The Long Island, New York native becomes the third player to sign a tender with the Brahmas for the 2015-16 season. With six tenders still remaining, expect more player additions coming over the next few weeks.
