Tim Laurila signs with the Brahmas

Former Brahma defenseman comes out of retirement

The Texas Brahmas signed former Brahmas defenseman Tim Laurila today to help out a decimated blue line. Wearing the number 25, Laurila will play in tonight's game against the Allen Americans. Laurila, 31, retired after the 2007-08 season but has remained active in the NYTEX family, most recently as a coach of the Jr. Brahmas Squirt team.

The 6' 4", 230 pound native of Moorhead, Minnesota tallied three points (2 G, 1 A) and 41 penalty minutes in 37 games played with the Brahmas during the 2007-08 season.

After four seasons of NCAA hockey at Michigan Tech, Laurila went pro in 2001-02, joining the Columbus Cottonmouths (ECHL) for 10 games at the end of that season. He also played two seasons with the Oklahoma City Blazers and a season each with the Motor City Mechanics (UHL), the Memphis RiverKings and the Corpus Christi Rayz.
