Brahmas sign Braden Walls

Rookie joins defense; will play tonight

The Texas Brahmas have signed rookie Braden Walls to a contract today per The 24-year-old right wing will move to defense and is listed on the roster for this weekend’s games in Arizona.

The 6’ 2”, 206 pound native of Calgary, Alberta has been seen working with the team at NYTEX for the past couple of weeks.

When I asked Dan Wildfong about Walls, he sounded pretty excited about him.

Walls spent the last four seasons with the University of Alaska – Fairbanks (NCAA) tallying 52 points (26 G, 26 A) and 162 penalty minutes in 150 games played. He played three seasons of junior hockey in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with the Calgary Canucks (2002-03) and the Drayton Valley Thunder (2003-04, 2004-05), scoring 117 points (45 G, 72 A) and earning 289 penalty minutes in 157 games played.

Walls played with Kevin McLeod in Calgary and Brett Jaeger in Drayton Valley.

He had signed with the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL) this season but did not make the final roster.
