The Johnstown Tomahawks have acquired forward Omar Mullan from the Amarillo Bulls in exchange for forward Cody Gylling.
Mullan comes to the Tomahawks after spending last season in Amarillo, where he scored 15 goals and 27 assists in 55 games. His +43 was third in the league behind fellow teammates John Rey and Mike Davis. He was part of the Bulls 2012-13 Robertson Cup championship team and had previously won a national championship with the Belle Tire U-18 Team. This season, Mullan has a goal and an assist in the four games at the 2013 NAHL Showcase. “Omar brings a tremendous amount of leadership to our young team and is a very team-oriented guy who sticks up for his teammates. He is a very physical, tough forward with a nice scoring touch,” said Tomahawks head coach Jason Spence.
In return for Mullan, the Tomahawks trade Cody Gylling. Gylling appeared in 57 games, racking up 16 goals and 29 assists. In five games for the Tomahawks this season, Gylling had a goal and assist, picking up both against Aberdeen at the showcase.
The Tomahawks are back in action this weekend against Soo, with games Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. The Tomahawks return home to the War Memorial to take on the Springfield Jr. Blues October 5th at 7 p.m. and October 6th for the second annual Pucks N’ Paws Night at 3 p.m.
