Texas Brahmas player profile - Brock Meadows

Former Robert Morris University defenseman brings size, shot-blocking skills

The Brahmas' newest defenseman is Brock Meadows, a rookie out of Robert Morris University, where he studied accounting. Meadows, 25, will attend the Oklahoma City Barons training camp along with Jim Burichin, Phil Fox and Matt Wallace, beginning on Monday.

A physical defenseman, Meadows blocked 19 shots in just 24 games this past season and put together his best offensive numbers at RMU with seven points (1 G, 6 A). Meadows served as an assistant captain with the Colonials during his senior season and became the first Robert Morris player to score a goal in an Atlantic Hockey game (the university joined the Atlantic Hockey Association for the 2010-11 season).

Meadows spent his freshmen year at Wayne State University where he registered 11 points (4 G, 7 A) and 10 PIM in 30 games played. He led all WSU freshmen with four goals and tied for the rookie lead in points (11). It was the Warriors final season, as the University discontinued the men's program due to economic conditions.

The 6' 1", 200-pound native of White Rock, British Columbia ended his collegiate career with 24 points (6 G, 18 A) and 84 PIM.

Prior to committing to Wayne State, Meadows played three seasons in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL). He began his junior career with the Surrey Eagles, recording 12 points (2 G, 10 A) and 73 PIM in 60 games played during the 2004-05 season. Meadows spent the following season with the Langley Hornets, where he was tied for third in total points with 41 points (9 G, 32 A) and 77 PIM in 60 games played.

Meadows split the 2006-07 season between the Westside Warriors and the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, tallying a combined 46 points (11 G, 35 A) and 108 PIM in 55 games played.

On March 12th, Meadows signed an Amateur Tryout Agreement contract with the Reading Royals (ECHL), where he played one game. He also played one game with the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL).
