Beast Authentics Top 10 Moments of the 2015-16 Season
#10 – Tifu Reaches 500 Points
For any professional hockey player, recording 500 career points in one league is a huge accomplishment and is not something that you see very often.
But this past season, Beast Forward Yannick Tifu was able to reach this impressive milestone.
In just the second game of the season on the road in Elmira against the Jackals on October 17, 2015, Tifu found himself sitting at 499 career ECHL points.
At the 13:56 mark of the second period, Tifu helped get the puck to rookie defenseman Travis Brown at the blue line. Brown unleashed a cannon of a slap shot and beat Jackals goaltender Sam Marotta.
Not only was the goal Brown’s first professional tally, it pushed Tifu’s career point total to 500, helping him join an elite club. To date, only 26 players in ECHL history have eclipsed the 500-point plateau with Tifu serving as the newest member of that exclusive group.
This significant milestone adds to an already impressive resume for Tifu which includes an ECHL Kelly Cup title with the Reading Royals which he won in the 2012-2013 season.
‘Beast Authentics’ is a one-of-a-kind game-used memorabilia program designed to offer fans the opportunity to own a piece of Beast history in the form of a variety of exciting game-used artifacts, including goal-scored pucks, game-worn jerseys and more.
