WRECK 'EM DECK, BRAHMAS SIGN DEFENSEMAN FOR 2009-10
07/30/2009 8:24 AM

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (July 30)-The Texas Brahmas of the Central Hockey League (CHL) have added more depth and size to their blueline as they have announced the signing of defenseman Kyle Deck for the 2009-10 season.

Last season the 6-foot-1, 201 pound defenseman played with the Flint Generals of the International Hockey League (IHL). As a General, Deck played 45 games notching 38 points (13 G, 25 A) and 48 penalty minutes. In January, Deck was honored as the IHL Rookie of the Week due to an offensive weekend where he tallied 4 points (2 G, 2 A) in 3 games.

Deck led the league in points (38) and assists (25) and was tied for second in goals (13) among all defensemen before going overseas to play with Jesenice, a Slovenian hockey team of the Austrian Erste Bank Hockey League.

In 2007-08, the Sedley, SASK native saw playing time with the Flint Generals, suiting up in eight games following a season with the University of Regina of the CWUAA (Canada West Universities Athletic Association). In college Deck had 9 points (1 G, 8 A) in 24 games.

Deck began his hockey career playing in juniors in the Western Hockey League (WHL), playing five seasons with the Kamloops Blazers and Regina Pats. During this time the 23 year old defenseman collected 106 points (25 G, 81 A) in 266 games.

"Our defense was one of the elite crew in the league last season, and we look for that same success. With Kyle on our blueline, we are sure to shutdown top lines this season," said Brahmas Head Coach Dan Wildfong.

Deck joins Craig Minard and Casey Russell on the Brahmas defensive roster as well as players Brett Jaeger, Jason Deitsch, Jamie Carroll, A.J. Gale and Jordan Cameron.

Season tickets for the Brahmas 2009-10 season are now available for purchase. For ticket information please contact the Brahmas offices at (817) 336-4423.
