We asked Apodaca what attracted him to the Titans team and he told us, "I played for (Coach) Peter Torsson before and I really liked is coaching style. I knew he would lead or team to successful year. I saw that he was gathering a bunch of skilled players ad I saw potential for a really skilled successful team."
In the 2013 NAPHL Championships Apodaca’s team went 3-1-0 and advanced to the semi finals where they ended their run.
Justin Apodaca is talented defenseman with many options for him.
We, at Local Ice Hockey.com, look forward to updates on Justin’s future success (05/02/13).
