Mike Towns putting the pressure on during Saturday night's game at NYTEX

And then there were 21...

Brahmas release Walker, Towns

The Texas Brahmas released two more players from their training camp roster today, leaving just two more cuts to make before the 2011-12 roster is announced. Placed on waivers were center Nolan Waker and forward Mike Towns.

Waker, 26, played the last five seasons for the University of Manitoba (CWUAA). During his collegiate career, Waker tallied 42 points (21 G, 21 A) and 60 penalty minutes in 134 games played. Prior to joining the Bisons, he spent one season (2005-06) with the Brampton Battalion (OHL) and two seasons each with the Prince Albert Raiders (WHL) and Kelowna Rockets (WHL).

Towns, 25, played four seasons (2003-07) with the Penticton Vees (BCHL) where he registered 52 points (21 G, 31 A) and 517 PIM in 190 games played.

One goaltender and one other player will be released by weeks end. I expect the other to be a forward as history has shown the Brahmas can use the seventh defenseman.
