Pat Egan Provides Scoring Punch To Lone Star Brahmas


Rookie Forward Pat Egan will bring a scorer’s touch to the Lone Star Brahmas for the 2014/15 NAHL season. The 5’ 9” – 165 pound native of Rochester, NY has spent the past two seasons with the Buffalo Jr. Sabres of the OJHL where he racked up 130 points in 105 games played. In two seasons of play he was named division star of the week four times and second star twice. He earned OJHL Second Team All-Star Honors last season when he finished third in the league in scoring.

Egan gave much of the credit for his numbers to the team around him in Buffalo. “We had a really skilled team for both of those years,” said Egan. “The guys I was playing with were all great players especially offensively and with two years of built up chemistry we were able to produce some good numbers.”

“I spoke with some other teams in the NAHL, BCHL, and USHL but I felt the most comfortable speaking with Coach Wildfong and Coach Potter”

Pat’s offensive output did not go unnoticed by the scouts and he received interest from a number of teams in multiple leagues. He made his decision to head to North Texas based on several conversations with the Brahmas’ coaching staff and Michael Crowley who was his teammate in Buffalo in 2012/13. “I spoke with some other teams in the NAHL, BCHL, and USHL but I felt the most comfortable speaking with Coach Wildfong and Coach Potter and was excited about what I was hearing about the culture of this organization and their focus on moving players on to the next level, It was a pretty easy decision for me to come here, I knew it was the right fit.” Egan was somewhat familiar with the NAHL having tendered with Jamestown during his 18U season but knew little about Lone Star, Crowley helped fill in the details. “I talked to Mike Crowley quite a bit before I ultimately made my decision,” he said. “I heard nothing but good things about the organization and everything involved here and that was very reassuring coming from a current player’s perspective.”

With a father that was a hockey player, the game came naturally to Egan who started playing at the age of four. “My dad taught me quite a bit about the game ever since I started playing and he still does.” With his dad’s help over the years, Egan fashioned himself into a play making forward who loves to have the puck on his stick. “My favorite player is Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks so I like to think I model my game after him to some extent.” He worked this summer on getting stronger and building stamina for the long NAHL season.

There are several things that Egan has set for goals this season. He wants to work on completing his game and be trusted in any situation whether the team is shorthanded or on the powerplay. Ultimately he wants to earn an NCAA, D-I commitment. He plans on majoring in business / marketing once he reaches college but hockey will never be far from his mind. “I would love to someday coach hockey and try to stay involved in the game as much and as long as possible.”

When asked what Brahmas’ fans can expect to see from him on the ice this season, Egan responded “A good hard work ethic every night and hopefully score some goals.” If the points come as they did in Buffalo the goal of a college commitment is well within his grasp along with a playoff spot for the Brahmas.
