Congratulations to Elite Hockey Program alum, Erik Gordon for earning NAHL player of the week! Erik Gordon is off to a perfect start to help the Lone Star Brahmas to the best record in the North American Hockey League. The South Division-leading Brahmas are 13-2-1 for a .844 winning percentage, which is the best in the NAHL.

"Gordon is an outstanding goalie and fun to watch. His work ethic and approach to the game are second to none.  As a 17 year old, playing in that league and making that kind of impact right now, tells you, he is in a class of his own." Said Elite Hockey Program President, Peter Alden


Thanks to three wins in Odessa this past week, the Lone Star Brahmas are not only leading the South Division, but statistically, now have the best winning percentage in the NAHL. Goalie Erik Gordon, 17, was between the pipes for two out of the three wins during the weekend and allowed just one goal on 51 shots, making 50 saves. That included a 25-save shutout on Saturday night for the 5’10/160 lbs. native of Duluth, Georgia. Gordon is a perfect 7-0-0 this season with a 1.51 goals against average and a 93.8% save percentage.  “Erik was there to make the key saves. We had some breakdowns defensively this weekend and he made some big saves and stood tall when they had some quality opportunities.  He was our rock back there this weekend and it was one of the big reasons we picked up three road wins against a very good Odessa team,” said Lone Star head coach Dan Wildfong.

Congrats Erik!
