NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – The Texas Brahmas have announced the signing of forward Noah Klinsky (96), from Brentwood, Tennessee. Klinsky had tendered with the Brahmas prior to last season, but due to a medical issue, he decided to put off playing junior hockey for the season to remain closer to home and finish his high school career. He did so in outstanding fashion as he helped lead his Brentwood HS team to a Tennessee State High School Championship.
More importantly, his medical condition is firmly behind him as he moves forward with his hockey career. "Noah has been on my radar for awhile now, and I'm real pleased that he's able to be on board with us this season," Head Coach Al Rooney said. "I've coached with and against him for a few years and he's a character player that has no quit in his game, has good smarts at both ends of the ice and will be a nice fit for our team down the middle."
Klinsky (5'7",160) is another piece of the puzzle up front for the Brahmas this season, a piece which Rooney sees as being as important as any other.
"In my experience, you need every role filled by not only quality players, but quality people as well," Rooney said. "Noah is a player that is a middle six type guy who is going to play a part in trying to bring a division and league championship to Texas. And he has Championship experience from just this past season alone."
Klinsky is now the fourth official signing announced by the Brahmas this summer with all indications from Rooney being that more are set to be announced later this week.
