AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls received some good news today (Monday) from the North American Hockey League when it was announced that Omar Mullan was chosen as the South Division Player Of The Week.
With the Amarillo line-up impacted by injuries to several key offensive players, veteran forward Omar Mullan, 19, took it upon himself to step up during Amarillo’s two road wins over the weekend in Odessa and help his team into a tie for 1st place in the South Division. The native of Dearborn, Michigan, scored the most points of any NAHL player during the week as he registered six points (1 goal, 5 assists) in the two wins.
On Friday, Mullan (5’9/175) assisted on three of Amarillo’s four goals in a 4-3 win, which included picking up the primary assist on the game-winning goal. On Saturday, Mullan had a goal and two more assists in an 8-3 win. In 22 games this season Mullan has 22 points and is third on the team in scoring and second in plus/minus with a +23.
“Omar is a guy that has really developed into a good and skilled player for us,” said Amarillo head coach Dennis Williams. “Last year, he found himself in a more physical, grinder role, but this year, he has really been able to be an all-around player who can put up some points. He has found a nice balance between the two and it has made him a really good two-way hockey player.”
