Zach Heintz Commits to Adrian College

June 13, 2019 - North American Hockey League (NAHL) - Lone Star Brahmas News Release

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX - The Lone Star Brahmas are pleased to announce that forward Zach Heintz has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at Adrian College.

Heintz' didn't spend much time with the Lone Star Brahmas during the 2019-20 season. Nearing the home stretch of last season he joined the team after a trade brought him to NYTEX from the Odessa Jackalopes where the forward played for over two seasons. While in Odessa, Heintz appeared in 151 games scoring 35 goals and 64 assists. In just 19 games for the Brahmas, the Grand Rapids, Michigan native scored nine goals and seven assists. Overall, Heintz had an outstanding NAHL career with 112 points (41 goals & 71 assists) in 170 games!

Although it was a short time calling the ice at the NYTEX Sports Centre his home, it still left a lasting impression with the future Bulldog.

"All the boys welcomed me with open arms and helped me feel like part of the team really quick," Heintz said. "I'll remember the long video sessions and all the good times I've made with the guys for years to come."

Now, the focus shifts to Heintz' new home at Arrington Ice Arena. A successful Bulldog program welcomes its newest skater who bought in from the beginning.

"What sold me on committing to Adrian was the balance between a great education and an even better hockey program," Heintz said. "Of course, being close to home was just an added bonus to the deal."
