Killer Bees: Forward Thinking (Sign Topher Scott)

POSTED: Monday, July 20, 2009 - 6:34pm

UPDATED: Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 12:33pm

KILLER BEES ADD FORWARD TOPHER SCOTT TO 2009-10 LINEUP
(July 20, 2009)
HIDALGO, TEXAS --- The Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees of the Central Hockey League (CHL) today announced that forward Topher Scott has signed with the team for the 2009-10 season.

Scott, who turns 24 on Thursday, was originally acquired by RGV from the Texas Brahmas on January 5 in a four-for-one trade for Travis Banga. In 33 games with the Killer Bees last season, he posted 19 points (5-14-19) and finished with a plus-10 rating. He became a key part of the team’s penalty-killing unit that erased 121-of-136 (89.9%) opponent power play opportunities in the team’s final 24 regular season games.

“Topher is a natural leader and the type of player that epitomizes the way I expect our team to play,” Killer Bees head Coach Chris Brooks explained. “He has been a captain at many levels and I expect him to be a critical part of building the culture of our team. My expectations and his expectations match. He will be critical to our success.”

The 5-foot-6, 155-pound native of Buffalo Grove, Ill., also appeared in 13 games for the Brahmas last season and posted four points (2-2-4). After wrapping up his college career, Scott got his first pro experience at the end of the 2007-08 season with the Elmira Jackals (ECHL).

“I’m excited about coming back and building on last season’s success,” Scott said. “It’s a great place to play. We have a good group of guys returning and solid new players coming in to help us reach our goal of a championship.”

Scott played four seasons of Division 1 college hockey at Cornell University (Ithaca, N.Y.) from 2004-08 and also spent four seasons with the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League from 2000-04. His college totals include 107 points (25-82-107) in 137 games, while he collected 104 points (38-66-104) in 134 USHL games. The USHL is the only Tier 1 hockey league in the United States.

The Killer Bees return to Dodge Arena ice this October for their seventh season in the CHL. Season tickets are available now by calling 956-843-PUCK (7825).
