AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls, proud members of the North American Hockey League, announced today (Monday) their 2010-2011 Roster for their Inaugural Season.
Players have been battling it out at the Amarillo Civic Center the last five days in scrimmage games and practice drills. The Bulls roster is currently filled with lots of experience and depth at all skilled positions.
There are six players each from the states of Michigan and Minnesota, while two players hail from Ohio, Washington and Wisconsin. The states of Colorado, Missouri and New Jersey also comprise the roster.
“We are very excited about our initial 2010-2011 roster,” said Head Coach Dennis Williams. “All of the players selected, battled hard and earned their opportunities to represent the Bulls and the Texas Panhandle.”
The Amarillo Bulls hit the ice for their first official practice tomorrow (Tuesday) from 9 am to 11 am. The team will head to Topeka, Kansas this weekend to square off against the Topeka Road Runners for a pair of exhibition games. Look for game wrap-ups at www.amarillobulls.com.
