Eagles Add Amateur O'Malley To Roster

March 24, 2010 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Colorado Eagles News Release

WINDSOR, Colo. - The Colorado Eagles announced today that they have added amateur forward Brett O'Malley to their playoff roster. Each team in the Central Hockey League is allowed to carry two amateur players during the Ray Miron President's Cup playoffs.

O'Malley spent the past four seasons with the University of Calgary Dinos, where he acted as one of the team's assistant captains for the past two seasons. In that time, the 5-foot-11-inch, 175-pound forward registered 90 points (49-41-90) and 200 penalty minutes in 129 games.

Prior to his time with the Dinos, the right-handed shooter played five seasons in the Western Hockey League, split between two different teams (the Lethbridge Hurricanes & the Calgary Hitmen). In 327 WHL games, he registered 126 points (52-74-126) and 250 PIMs.

O'Malley, who will wear number 37 for Colorado, is coming off a strong final season with the Dinos in which he scored a late, game-winning goal to propel his team into the playoffs. Other hockey highlights include representing Canada at the IIHF U-18 world championship in 2002 where he had a goal and two assists playing alongside current NHLers Eric Staal and Pierre-Marc Bouchard, and attending a tryout camp with the New York Islanders in 2003.
