WICHITA FALLS, TX – The Wichita Falls Warriors are pleased to announce the tender of 2004 forward Landon MacDonald.
The 6 foot 2, 179 pound forward from Brighton, Michigan will look to add to the Warriors offensive attack next season in his first season in the North American Hockey League. MacDonald said it was a no brainer on where he wanted to play next season, “Watching the success they had in year one and the culture they had established on and off the ice, it was an easy decision”, said MacDonald. The forward is a big bodied skater who has the ability to make big time plays. “I feel I am a good sized forward who plays the game hard and physical, but can also make plays and score.” Warriors forward Carter Korpi has put in a good word for MacDonald to help in his decision. “I have been teammates with Carter’s younger brother Cameron and have heard nothing but great things from Carter.”
This past season, MacDonald recorded 26 points on 18 goals and 8 assists in 40 games played with Little Caesars 16U AAA. “My coach, Derek Roehl did a great job of pushing me and he really helped me improve my play in all three zones.” MacDonald will be joining a Warriors offense that totaled 171 goals during the 2020-21 season which was 8th in the NAHL.
MacDonald has been on the Warriors radar for a while now and Head Coach Garrett Roth is looking forward to bringing him in next season, “Landon is a big and physical forward that has a high compete level”, said Roth. “He is a player that we have been following for a couple of years.” The Warriors feel that they have found another high character player that can make an instant impact to the locker room. “Landon is a high character, hard working player that we are extremely excited about adding to our group.”
