Josh Hillegas Tenders With Texas

Apr 14, 2010

St. Louis goaltender Josh Hillegas has signed a tender to play for the Texas Tornado of the NAHL next season.  Hillegas led the league in wins (25), GAA (1.68), and SV% (.936) in the regular season.  Overall he finished with a 32-4-0-7 line with a 1.90 GAA and a .931 SV% in the CSHL.  In the USA Tier III Jr. A Nationals, he went 3-1 with two coming in the semi-final and Championship games.  Jr. Blues Head Coach Jack Behan says, \”Josh had a terrific season for us culminating with an outstanding National tournament.\”  

However, Texas has an idea what they are getting.  According to Behan, \”Earlier this winter Josh spent a week in Texas practicing with the Tornado and liked the situation.\”  After their run at the USA Hockey Nationals, Hillegas sealed the deal.  \”The Tender offer came after Nationals and I think this will be a great fit for Josh.  Josh is such a quiet competitor.  He was so confident in the tough situations at the Hurster Cup and Nationals.  I can\’t say enough about his composure and competitiveness.  Texas got themselves a heck of a goalie and a heck of a kid.  I wish him continued success in his career. \”
