Lone Star forward Turansky makes NCAA DI commitment
The Lone Star Brahmas of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Artur Turansky has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Miami University in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC).
Turanksky, 20, is in his second and final season playing junior hockey in the NAHL and first season with the Brahmas. The 5’11/180 lbs. native of Bratislava, Slovakia, has appeared in 25 games to date and recorded 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists) and recorded 1.04 points per game average.
His offensive power lands him second on the Brahmas roster in points, goals and assists. Turansky was also named the NAHL South Division Star of the Week, November 8-14, 2021 after gaining four points in two wins against the Shreveport Mudbugs.
“I am proud to announce my commitment to play D1 college hockey at Miami University,” said Turansky, regarding his commitment. “Thanks to my family, friends, and coaches that have helped me along the way.”
“This is an exciting day for Artur and his family,” said assistant coach of the Brahmas, Ryan Anderson. “Turo has been an instrumental piece of our team this season. He has a proven ability to score and create chances for his linemates. The Brahmas look forward to watching him join the former Brahmas that are already attending Miami.”
Turansky previously played in the NAHL during the 2019-20 season for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights and Corpus Christi IceRays. In 45 games played that season, Turansky had 31 points.
Turansky is the fourth player in Brahmas history to skate for Miami University, with alumni including Thomas Daskas, Ludvig Persson, Chase Pletzke and Alex Murray.
