NAHL: Beydoun a Warrior in net
January 27, 2014
Robbie Beydoun has had quite the start to his North American Hockey League career with the Michigan Warriors.
Beydoun, a 1996 birth-year goalie, has won his first three NAHL starts with the Warriors and allowed only three goals in the process.
Beydoun’s three-game beginning with the Warriors reads 3-0 record, 1.00 goals against average and .960 save percentage.
“He’s a kid who we tendered and our goaltending had been just average this season so we thought we would take a look at Robbie,” Warriors coach-general manager Moe Mantha said of Beydoun, who is a product of the Detroit Compuware midget program.
“So far, so good, I would have to say,” Mantha added.
The rookie Beydoun is now in tandem with veteran puckstopper Trevor Gorsuch after the Warriors dealt goalie Dillon Kelley to the NAHL’s Austin Bruins.
As a team, the Warriors have won five straight games and have moved into second place in the NAHL’s North Division heading into play this week with 48 points from a record of 20-12-8.
