Lafayette Hill native Harrison Feeney, who plays goaltender for the Lone Star Brahmas in the North American Hockey League, has been named by the league as its Star of the Week for the South Division.
From the league:
With his team needing a couple of wins to stay in the playoff hunt in the South Division, Lone Star Brahmas goalie Harrison Feeney, 20, came through with a couple of big performances to help his club sweep the Topeka Pilots and move into a tie for 3rd place in the South Division. The 6’2/213 lbs. native of Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, faced 57 shots and made 53 saves in the two wins. On Friday, Feeney made 20 saves in a 4-2 win, and then on Saturday was even better with 33 saves in a 3-2 shootout win, which also included shutting the door on all three Pilots shooters. For the season, Feeney has now won his last four starts and in 29 appearances has a 11-10-6 record with a 2.05 goals against average and .931 save percentage. “Harrison has stuck with the process of development and has been getting better every week. He has been one of our best players all season long and this weekend was a great example of that. He has been a great leader on and off the ice and we are very happy for him,” said Brahmas head coach Dan Wildfong.
The 24-team NAHL is the only USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier II Junior league. The league offers junior hockey players the opportunity to develop, learn, train, grow and succeed, while playing for free. The NAHL is unique in the fact that a vast majority of players begin their NAHL careers without an NCAA opportunity, but earn one through the course of their development in the league.
According to EliteProspects.com, Feeney will be playing for the University of North Dakotah starting in 2019.
