San Juan Capistrano native, California youth hockey grad Williams nabs weekly NAHL accolades
The NAHL has announced that Oklahoma Warriors forward Brendan Williams is the South Division Star of the Week.
Williams, 20, had another big weekend as the Warriors picked up a weekend road sweep in Shreveport of the Mudbugs.
The native of San Juan Capistrano had five points in the two wins.
On Friday, Williams had a goal and three assists in a 5-4 win. On Saturday, he picked up an assist in a 6-3 win.
For the season, Williams is tied for the team scoring lead with 33 points (14 goals, 19 assists) in 27 games.
“Brendan has been an impact player from the moment he came to our organization last year,” said Warriors head coach Garrett Roth. “What he brings to our team and his compete level to help the team have success is what will help him have success in college next year. This weekend was no exception to the way he has played all season. He is everything as a coach you would want in a player, and I couldn’t be more excited to see what his future has in store for him.”
Back home, Williams won two USA Hockey high school national championships as a freshman and sophomore with Santa Margarita Catholic High School.
Williams also played youth hockey for OC Hockey Club, LA Hockey Club and then the Anaheim Jr. Ducks all the way through 16U when the team qualified for nationals.
