FRISCO, TEXAS – Amarillo Bulls forward Mike Davis took home his third South Division Player Of The Week late Monday afternoon.
The Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2012-13 regular season that honors the top performing players in each of the four NAHL divisions as nominated by their respective teams.
It was a record-breaking weekend for forward Davis. The 19-year-old from Newark, Delaware, recorded six goals in two home wins over the Wichita Falls Wildcats this season as the Bulls completed a weekend home sweep to close in on the NAHL’s top regular season record in 2012-13.
On Friday, Davis (5’11/180) set an NAHL season-high mark with five goals in one game as the Bulls beat the Wildcats, 7-1. Four of the goals came even strength and one came on the power play. The next night, Davis added the game-winning goal in a 4-1 win. He was also +4 during the weekend. His six point weekend moved him into a tie for the team scoring lead this season with 54 points (27 goals, 27 assists).
“Friday night was one of those nights where everything was going in for Mike, but while you were watching it, you could understand why it was happening. He had a quick release on his shot, was working hard to put himself in a position to scored and was focused,” said Bulls head coach Dennis Williams. “He actually scored a very nice and timely goal on Saturday too, so it was a good weekend for him and he has really been playing well for us this season.”
The Amarillo Bulls are back in action this weekend in Corpus Christi to face the IceRays at American Back Center. The games are set for Saturday at 7 pm and Sunday at 3 pm. Fans can tune into the action live on CBS Sports Radio 1440 and www.amarillobulls.com, and on P-P-V courtesy of Fast Hockey beginning 15 minutes before the puck is dropped.
