Tap, tap, tap!

A hat trick on Saturday night and the team lead in points highlight Jordan Cameron's play; surpasses 150 points as a Texas Brahma

He was the Brahmas' leading scorer in 2007-08 with 64 points (30 G, 34 A, +4) and he came in second last season (behind Scott Sheppard) with 60 points (23 G, 37 A, +15) during the Brahma's quest for the President's Cup. The 6' 4", 218 pound right wing from Drayton Valley, Alberta has also tallied 26 points (7 G, 19 A, -5) in 29 post-season contests with Texas.

On Saturday night, Cameron scored a hat trick against the Arizona Sundogs which put him at 152 regular season points (61 G, 91 A, +25) scored as a Brahma. It was his first hat trick with the team.

Cameron currently leads all Brahmas players with 28 points (8 G, 20 A, +6) in 27 games played. He is one of four players (Jacobsen, Gale Skworchinski) who have started every game this season. He also leads the team in assists (20), power play assists (6) and short-handed assists (2).

"I think he really bought into playing a team game," head coach Dan Wildfong told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's William Wilkerson. "He’s been playing strong. The past month here he has really played a complete game. He’s leading more by example. He’s taken more pride in the team playing together and he’s wearing that letter on his shirt with a little more pride now."

Wildfong is happy to see Cameron as an assist leader and not just a goal scorer.

"Obviously he would like to score more. but he’s moving the puck more and he’s not just shooting...that line of [Tyler] Skworchinski and [Matt] Burto is playing really well together. All they are doing is keeping it simple and working really hard. That’s the key for Jordan. He’s one of the more skilled guys in the league."
