North Iowa defenseman Solow heads back to the NAHL
January 22, 2016
The NA3HL’s North Iowa Bulls have a history of moving players into the NAHL. The most recent of those players is Naples, Florida native Jeff Solow.
Solow, one of North Iowa's top defensemen, is set to finish the season with the Amarillo Bulls. Amarillo is the NAHL affiliate of North Iowa.
Solow, 19, began his career in the NAHL with the Keystone Ice Miners in 2014-15. During that season he also played in Soo with the Eagles and finished the season in Kenai River.
During the 2015-16 season, Solow began the year in Kenai River and after 10 games joined the Bulls. In 20 games with North Iowa this season, Solow (5’10/180) had 11 points and was a +24.
In 37 career NAHL games, Solow has nine points.
“When Jeff came to North Iowa after spending parts of two seasons in the NAHL we knew he had what it took to get himself back into that league. With hard work and capitalizing on the opportunity of quality playing time Solow has made that transition,” said North Iowa head coach Todd Sanden. "Coach Nicholson and I have been in contact on Jeff's progress and now seemed like the right time to make the move."
