Bridges, Berisha, Champagne, and Kamrass Headed To Top Prospects
Goaltender PJ Bridges, defensemen Avni Berisha and Cody Champagne, and forward Jake Kamrass have been selected to represent the RoadRunners for the South Division in next month's NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. Head coach Scott Langer will once again be serving on the coaching staff, assisting Amarillo Bulls head coach Dennis Williams.
"I believe Topeka will be represented well," said Runners head coach Scott Langer. "There were a lot of worthy players on this year's team." About the tournament itself, Langer added "The prospects offer an extra viewing amongst the league's top players. The players have to take advantage of something like this."
From NAHL.com: "The number of players each NAHL team is sending to the event, in which four teams from the four NAHL divisions: Central, Midwest, North and South and a special fifth NAHL 18U Selects team, will each play in two game games, was based on each team's winning percentage within their group as of January 20, 2014.
Only those NAHL players without an NCAA commitment are eligible to participate in the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, with the exception of those who will be playing on the NAHL 18U Selects team. Each of the teams consists of a 20-man roster (12 forwards, 6 defensemen, 2 goaltenders)."
