Two former Michigan Tech players, Tyler Skworchinski and Peter Rouleau, and ex-Northern Michigan defenseman Justin Kinnunen helped the Texas Brahmas to the Central Hockey League championship last Thursday night.
The Brahmas posted a 6-2 win over the Colorado Eagles to claim the Ray Miron President’s Trophy and its first championship in 11 years.
Skworchinski picked up an assist on the Brahmas second goal of the game, while finishing the season seventh on the team in points with 38 (16 goals, 22 assists) in 64 games. He played in 113 games for Tech from 2003-2007, tallying 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists).
Rouleau finished the year eighth on the Brahmas in points with 36. The Hancock native scored 13 goals and added 23 assists in 52 games for the Brahmas. He recorded 61 points (19 goals, 42 assists) in 95 games in a Tech uniform from 2005-2008.
Kinnunen, who played at Northern Michigan from 2000-2004, appeared in 16 playoff contests for the Brahmas and scored four goals to go with seven assists.
