The Scouting Report
The North American Hockey League's Texas Tornado have moved across town to become the Lone Star Brahmas for the 2013–14 season. In the coming months, the 2011 Robertson Cup champs will continue to defend NYTEX Sports Centre against South Division foes—something they did in thrilling fashion on December 7. On that night, during a showdown against the division-leading Amarillo Bulls, the Brahmas slashed the opposing defense and held a stout defensive line, racking up a 4–1 victory. Instead of drilling a hole from beneath the ice for a periscope, fans can witness similar strong play from the comfort of terrace seats while also enjoying game-night promotions, such as Youth Jersey Night on January 18 and Foam Puck Night on February 8.
Lone Star Brahmas
Though the former Texas Tornado are now playing under a new name—the Lone Star Brahmas—the change is actually a homecoming of sorts. In their nascent days, the Tornado played their home games in NYTEX Sports Centre, the arena they now return to as the Brahmas to see if someone kept their seats warm. The franchise has a history of greatness, netting five Robertson Cup victories, including three back-to-back titles from 2004–2006.
