Behling Named NAHL’s 3rd Star

BULLS’ BEHLING ANNOUNCED AS NAHL THIRD STAR OF THE WEEK

 

 

AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls in conjunction with the North American Hockey League proudly named Brooks Behling as the third star in the Combat Hockey Three Stars of the Week.  

Behling, a native of Pittsburgh, PA, posted three goals and two assists over both wins at the Budweiser Bull Pen this past weekend.

Friday, Behling, 20, scored two goals and added an assist as Amarillo beat division rivals, the Topeka RoadRunners 5-3. Behling’s second goal of the game came during a power play and proved to be the game winner in the third period. The following night, Behling continued his outstanding weekend grabbing two assists on the first two goals of the game as Amarillo edged Wichita Falls 3-2. The weekend was the first sweep for the Bulls and secured them a spot first place in the NAHL South. For the season, Behling has 10 points (5g,5a) in 11 games played.

“As a veteran player, Brooks has shown a lot of leadership this season so it was good to see him step up and play really well this past weekend,” said Bulls Head Coach Dennis Williams. “He was a big reason why we won.”

The Amarillo Bulls return to the road this weekend for back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday. The action starts Friday when the Bulls visit the Wichita Falls Wildcats at 7 pm at Kay Yeager Coliseum. It’s the second straight meeting between the two teams. On Saturday night, the Amarillo Bulls make their first trip to Ector County Coliseum to face the Odessa Jackalopes with the puck drop at 7 pm.
