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. Halfway through the first season as the Brahmas, the 2011 Robertson Cup champs continue to defend NYTEX Sports Centre against South Division foes—something they did in resounding fashion in their first home series of 2014. On January 10, they opened up the two-game stand with a 3–0 victory in which goalie T.J. Black recorded his second shutout of the season, and the following day, the Brahmas fought hard for a 3–2 overtime victory. Instead of drilling a hole from beneath the ice for a periscope, fans can witness similar strong play from the comfort of terrace or plaza seats while also enjoying game-night promotions, such as Foam Puck Night on February 8 and Pink at the Rink night on February 28.
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.
