The Charlotte Rush have a lot of stars on their Premier group this season. They are likely to see more than a few of their currently undefeated Premier team get looks at the Division One level. One player that could earn some of those looks along with the Division Three looks he has already received is Hungarian 2002 born forward David Barna. He is a six foot three inch tall forward with a power to his game. He should help get looks for the developing skill players around him. Barna also drives the net front well , and will help create more rebound looks and screened goals for others this year. In addition, he will be fighting for more Division Three and Division One visibility in his last year of junior hockey. The Rush know what rosters that win championships look like and adding Barna is a step in that direction.
Director of Player Development Trevor Jewell had the following to say about what the USPHL veteran brings to the group this year.
“We first saw David last season in an opposing uniform when he was with Hamptons premier team. He’s a fast, skilled forward that has a nose for the net and always find a way to be involved & on the scoresheet. He plays fast, has a physical side that helps to create space for himself and his linemates. He also brings a great attitude off the ice with the premier group. He is happy to be here and was looking for a good home that will help get him to the next level and next stage in his life which is college hockey. We signed him because we wanted to add another forward who we believe complimented the group we have, someone who could add more depth scoring and also be a threat up and down the lineup. We are looking forward to seeing what he does in his first weekend wearing a Rush uniform and believe he will be a great addition on and off the ice.”
