Amarillo, TX – The Amarillo Bulls have announced that they have added an NAPHL product, Joshua Burke, to the active roster for the 2019-2020 season.
Burke, who spent the previous part of the season with the New Jersey Jr. Titans of the North American Prospects Hockey League, has been added to a full-time role on the Bulls roster for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
“We are very excited about Josh joining our team full time,” said Bulls Head Coach Rocky Russo. “He has quickly established himself as one of the best forwards in the NAPHL and showed, this week during practice, that he can help our team right away. Nick Skerlick has done a great job of building teams in New Jersey and promoting his players to the NAHL. This is another great example of Nick helping his players to advance.”
During his time with the Jr. Titans, Burke recorded 46 points from 17 goals and 29 assists over a 29-game span.
“Josh has been and will be the hardest guy to lose from our roster for any time period,” said Nick Skerlick, the head coach of the Jr. Titans. “He was the captain of the team, a great leader, and a supporting friend. After we knew we were getting him back for the season, I knew it wouldn’t be much of a long-term stay. It’s definitely an emotional feeling, and I know those emotions got heavier as HockeyTV was on my TV all day for the debut. I wish the best of luck to Josh, and congratulations to the Burke family.”
Burke, who made his NAHL debut last Saturday, solidified his position on the Bulls roster and played in last night’s 2-1 overtime win against the Corpus Christi IceRays. Burke has been assigned jersey number 14 and has officially been listed as a member of the active roster.
