Snowden had points in all four of the Brahmas games last week including a near record effort in Wednesday's 7-1 victory in Arizona.

In Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Sundogs, Snowden had a goal and an assist helping Fort Worth to another win on a 5-0 road trip.
Over the weekend, the Everett, Washington native scored one of the Brahmas two goals in their 4-2 loss to Allen on Friday and then came back with a pair of assists in Fort Worth's 4-3 overtime win at Tulsa.
On the season, Snowden has scored 21 goals with 15 assists in 26 games with Fort Worth. The veteran played in 22 games with Rapid City scoring two goals with nine assists prior to joining the Brahmas just prior to Christmas.
