AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls made a transaction earlier this week in preparation for their extended road trip. The Bulls sent defenseman Jake McNamara to the Corpus Christi IceRays.
McNamara, a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan had no points in six games.
“Jake is the brother of Dan who was with us last year and they are a great family,” said Bulls Head Coach Dennis Williams. “We really like Jake and I want nothing more than for great things to happen to him. He is a super guy who buys in and works hard, but the terrible thing of junior hockey is that you can’t keep a roster of 35 players. We got down to our number when we activated Dean Ryhmer off the injured reserve list.”
The Bulls will see former teammate McNamara and the Corpus Christi IceRays tomorrow (Friday) night at 7 pm at American Bank Center. Fans can tune into the game live on CBS Sports Radio 1440, www.amarillobulls.com and on PPV courtesy of Fast Hockey, beginning with the Wayland Baptist University Warm Up Show at 7:15 pm.
The home schedule resumes for the defending National Champions on Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday Nov. 23 versus the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center at 7 pm. The Friday game is military appreciation night, while Saturday is an opportunity for fans to support the Food Bank. Tickets are available at the Bulls Office located at 301 South Polk, Civic Center Box Office and all Panhandle Ticket Outlets including United Supermarkets.
