NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – The Texas Brahmas are pleased to announce that they have tendered forward Chris Magee ('96) with their tenth and final tender (via Rochester).
"Magee is a player we had our eye on this time last year," head coach Al Rooney said. "To finally secure his rights and have him become a Brahma is exciting for us."
Magee (5'8", 160) played the past two season with TPH Thunder where he scored seven goals and 13 assists. The newest Brahmas forward may not torch the net every night, but he will fill a considerable role for the Brahmas this season and eat plenty of minutes on the ice.
"He will be a vital piece up front, will serve in a shut down role, top penalty killer, while possessing enough skill to keep opponents honest," Rooney said. "His work ethic and tenacity will be a great addition to our lineup."
After losing veteran forwards Puetz, Davis and Grimm in previous trades, Magee provides the Brahmas with a younger and versatile forward who can fill in the holes and play tough. Rooney also says he expects the Raleigh, North Carolina native to rise quickly up the junior hockey ladder if he lands with Texas.
"Chris may very well start the season in the NAHL somewhere. There's always that risk. But if he's available to us, he is capable of really making a difference."
