It has been a great start to 2019 for Lone Star Brahmas netminder Harrison Feeney. The native of Lafayette Hill, PA won both games in a home sweep of Topeka Pilots earning NAHL South Division Player of the Week. This marks the fourth time this season that Feeney has been recognized in the player of the week voting including being named Second Star once and Honorable Mention twice.

In addition Feeney has announced his NCAA Div I commitment to the University of North Dakota and will join the Fighting Hawks immediately. North Dakota has put together a 11-9-1 overall record and moved into the NCAA Div I Ranking at number 20. With a 5-5-0 league record they are fifth place in the NCHC National Collegiate Hockey Conference.

In parts of two seasons, Feeney has put up a 23-13-3-4 record in 48 games with an outstanding 1.73 goals against average and a 0.929 save percentage in 48 games played.

This past weekend, Feeney faced 57 shots on goal turning aside 53 in helping the Brahmas to a sweep of the Pilots and extending his personal win streak to four games. Harrison is currently fifth in the league in goals against average with a 2.05 GAA and tied for fourth with a 0.931 SV%. He has also posted four shutouts for a share of the league lead.

Feeney’s advancement adds to the Brahmas well established reputation of outstanding goalie development. Since joining the NAHL in 2013 Lone Star has seen two goaltenders selected in the NHL Draft with Jake Kupsky going to the San Jose Sharks in the 7th round of the 2015 draft and Mitchell Gibson to the Washington Capitals in the 4th round last season. In addition 14 former Brahmas netminders have gone on to play NCAA hockey including TJ Black who won the NCAA Div III National Championship last season with St. Norbert College.
