Brooks succeeds in ECHL
Kearney, Neb. – Former Storm Captain Kenny Brooks inked an ECHL deal with the Colorado Eagles (ECHL) and contributed immediately, potting assists in consecutive games. The assists were Brooks’ first professional points.
In six games with Colorado, the Penn State graduate has two assists and a plus-3 rating. The Eagles have the second-best record in the ECHL.
In the AHL, goaltenders Pheonix Copley and Adam Wilcox played both games for their clubs over the weekend. Copley helped the Chicago Wolves earn one point Saturday against the defending Calder Cup Champion Cleveland Monsters. Meanwhile, Syracuse Crunch netminder Wilcox needed eight saves in relief to best the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 5-3. The Crunch sit first in the North Division.
Most colleges have hit the holiday break, but Michael Vecchione provided another gift for Union College. The NCAA goal scoring leader scored his 18th of the season, the game-winning goal, and the Dutchmen defeated Vermont to finish up the pre-holiday schedule.
