George Mika Amarillo Bulls
Amarillo Bulls veteran forward George Mika, 19, had a great month of September, finishing 2nd in scoring with 13 points, which was only one point behind teammate Kosta Likourezos. The native of Naples, Florida, finished with 5 goals and 8 assists and a +4 rating in 8 games during the month. Mika (5’11/181) had a five-game point streak during the month, which included 7 points at the NAHL Showcase as the Bulls went 3-0-1 at the event. 2016-17 marks his third year playing in the NAHL. In 83 career NAHL games, he has recorded 60 points. “Obviously, his point totals have contributed greatly to our success, but the bigger picture for George is the all-around player he has become. He plays at both ends of the ice, he plays on special teams, he is our best face-off man and he provides us with the leadership we need to be successful,” said Bulls head coach Matt Nicholson.
