Two WF Wildcats Get Honors from NAHL

From NAHL Communications:

Wildcats goaltender Evan Cowley, 17, began the week by being named to the NHL Central Scouting watch list and being selected to be in the USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.  The native of Evergreen, Colorado ended the week by posting back-to-back shootout home wins over the Corpus Christi IceRays to move the Wildcats into a tie for 3rd place in the South Division.  For the weekend, Cowley (6'4/185) stopped 58 of 63 shots for a 92.1% save percentage and a goals against average of 2.40, but really shined in the shootouts, where he stopped nine of 10 IceRays shooters to earn the Wildcats the valuable four points.  "I think in total, Evan faced about 14 breakaways during the weekend and stopped all but one of them, so that is a testament to his natural ability.  He is learning at a really fast pace and has already adapted to the level of play in the NAHL," said Wildcats head coach Paul Baxter.
2nd Star: Eliot Grauer, forward, Wichita Falls Wildcats
Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Kyle Sharkey, forward, Topeka RoadRunners.

The Wildcats will continue the season Saturday night in Frisco against the Texas Tornado.
