AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls received even more good news following their opening weekend win over the arch rival Odessa Jackalopes on Saturday night.
The North American Hockey League (NAHL) today (Tuesday) announced the Divisional Stars of the Week presented by Easton Hockey for the week ending September 13, 2015, and Bulls Forward Joey Molinaro was the recipient of the South Division player of the week.
The Easton Hockey Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2015-16 regular season that honors the top performing players in each of the four NAHL divisions. Only players that are nominated by their respective teams are considered for the Divisional Players of the Week award.
Even though he played in just one game during the weekend, Amarillo Bulls forward Joey Molinaro made his presence felt. The 19-year-old native of Mississauga, Ontario had a four-point game in a 6-3 home win over the Odessa Jackalopes on Saturday night. Molinaro (6’1/177) scored two goals and added two assists and was a +1 in the win. He scored Amarillo’s second goal, which came early in the 1st period and also scored the 5th goal on the power play early in the 3rd period. "Joey made quite an impression on his teammates, our staff and our home fans with such a quick start. Joey showed that he is a dual threat as a player that can find the back of the net, as well as create time and space to set up his teammates. Our staff believes that he is a Division One caliber player that many schools would be happy to have,” said Bulls head coach Matt Nicholson.
