Jr. Ducks Alumni Named NAHL Playoff MVP
Congrats to former Jr. Ducks player Brendan Williams, on being named the MVP of the NAHL’s Robertson Cup Playoffs.
Williams, who scored during the Oklahoma Warriors’ 4-3 victory over the Austin Bruins in the league’s championship game, had eight goals and 12 points in nine postseason games. The goals were the second most of any player in the playoffs and the point total was fourth most. Oklahoma ran the table in the playoffs, winning all nine of its games.
Williams’ goal off a 3-on-2 rush 4:52 into the second period of the championship game gave the Warriors their first lead at 2-1.
Oklahoma led the league with 90 points (44-14-1-1) in 60 games during the regular season, and Williams played a big role in that.
A 2002 birth year who also played for Santa Margarita Catholic in the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League, Williams had 52 points (21 goals) in 55 regular-season games for the Warriors. The franchise relocated from Wichita Falls, Texas, after last season.
Williams also was highly productive during his time with the Jr. Ducks. He had 87 points, including 50 goals) during 75 games as a 16U AAA player during the 2018-19 season after 45 points in 51 games at 14U AAA the previous season.
T1EHL is proud of all of its players who continue to advance in the ranks of hockey. Where can you go from here? Everywhere.
