Texas Brahmas forward Potyk called up to NAHL
January 31, 2020
The Texas Brahmas of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Gabe Potyk has been called up to the North American Hockey League (NAHL) to play for the Corpus Christi IceRays.
“We are extremely excited and proud of Gabe for earning this call up to Corpus Christi this weekend versus Amarillo. After suffering an injury at the end of summer Gabe attacked his rehab and completely changed his body for the better. He has been a leader in our locker room and on the ice since he arrived,” said Brahmas Head Coach Ryan Anderson.
Potyk, 19, is now the third Texas Brahmas player to earn NAHL playing time this season, following in the footsteps of Dylan Smith and Ian Erdman. This is yet another example of the NAHL Ladder of Development at work.
The 6’3/220 lbs. native of Lake Orion, Michigan, spent last season in the NAHL with the Lone Star Brahmas, but was later bit by an injury bug, and after rehab, needed to play to earn his way back to the NAHL.
Potyk choose the Texas Brahmas and the NA3HL as his pathway back and in a short amount of time earned the call-up.
“Gabe is a really good person, and he’s just the kind of young man every team wants leading teammates to the ice. It benefits the entire organization when you have a player like Gabe in the room, and he will do good things for the IceRays now and in the future,” said Brahmas Organization President and Owner Frank Trazzera.
The Texas Brahmas would also like to thank the Corpus Christi Ice Rays and Coach Nate Weossner for reaching out and providing this opportunity for Gabe.
