Squirts Win Grizzly Cup
Thursday, January 22, 2015 -

After second place finishes in the Labor Day and Thanksgiving tournaments, the Squirt Travel Team stormed through Salt Lake City this weekend, and captured the Grizz Cup Championship in convincing fashion, with an unblemished 5-0 record.  Earning accolades from officials, opposing coaches and parents, the highly disciplined team exhibited poise, sportsmanship and leadership well beyond their years both on and off the ice. 

Defeating a solid Hawks squad from Idaho in the semifinal, the Squirt Travel Team met the Jackson Moose, a team which nearly defeated the Storm in the opening round, in the final. From the drop of the puck, the young Squirt Travel Team would not be denied, going up 4-1 in the first period off of goals from Tanner Parker, Chayse Laurie (2), and Jacob Fraker.  After defenseman Nick Leleu stole the puck and fired in a goal from the top of the circles late in the second, the Moose came charging back.  Scoring a goal late in the second and two more early in the third period, the Moose appeared within reach of the lead.  Storm coaches called timeout to settle and refocus the young squad, which did not appear to immediately work, as the Storm took a penalty on the following shift.  As they had all tournament, the Storm penalty killers rendered the man-advantage ineffective, though, and when the Storm came back to even strength, Jacob Fraker netted 2 more goals from close range to complete his hat trick and seal the Squirt Travel Team's first tournament championship.

The Squirt Travel Team has played 47 games this season so far, and with 10 players returning as Squirts next year, has become recognized as among the top teams of their age in the Southwest United States.  The Grizz Cup Championship is just the start of many great things to come for this young team!!

STORM SQUIRTS RING IN THE NEW YEAR IN MAMMOTH FASHION

We can't think of a better way to ring in the New Year than traveling and playing with our hockey family.  Participating in the inaugural outdoor Mammoth Lakes Calder Winter Classic tournament, many of our young players experienced for the first time what competitive outdoor hockey is all about.  With a backdrop of the world renowned Mammoth Mountain ski resort, players took to the ice with smiles on their faces in conditions ranging from subzero wind-chill temperatures to warm and sunny.  

Post-game activities including skiing, tubing, sledding, barbecuing, bowling, sitting by the fire and a good old fashioned snow ball fight, helped build a sense of unity and brotherhood that will surely benefit the team well into the future.  Thank you Las Vegas Ice Center and Nevada Storm for facilitating such an incredible experience full of lasting memories for both our children and parents alike.

 

Storm PeeWee's take 3rd Banner of the Year
Thursday, December 04, 2014 -

 Rolling on the River!

For the third time in as many months the Nevada Storm Peewee A hockey team have captured another Banner to hang in the rafters at the Las Vegas Ice Center. This time they did it in a dramatic fashion. After going 0-1-1 in the first two games the Storm had their backs against the wall. In a must win game the Storm came through with a 2-1 over the SD Selects, allowing them to claim 4th place ranking and a spot in the semi-finals to face off against SDIA, the only team who had beat them so far. The Storm got off to a great start scoring first and holding on to a 1-0 lead until 4 min left in the 3rd period.  After regulation the teams were locked at 1. After a 5 minute sudden death overtime the teams were still knotted up. It wasn’t until the 4th round of the shootout that the Storm prevailed yet again! After the emotional rollercoaster of the semifinals the Storm never flinched as they came out flying and scored an early goal in the first period and never looked back making their way to a 3-0 victory.

The defense was spectacular this weekend as Gia Avalone Nick Bonaldi and Bryce Wellman played incredible shutdown defense and Trent Carter and Jacob Underhill, not only shut down the opposition  but contributed on the offensive side as well. Up front everyone contributed. Whether it was  a huge shot block or an important wall battle or big back check, everyone had something to do with it, Tucker Smith, Grant Tharaldson, Quincy Scallion, Ean Vitz, Chase McCrossan, Landon Gaudreault, Dominic Surh, Tony Mazza, Kyle Martin and Jack McMahon. And yet again another great weekend from our goalies as Zack Ortolano and Joey Underhill stole the show. Joey Hallett was named MVP of the Championship Game.

The Storm now have a tough challenged ahead of them as they will be competing in the Peewee AA division of the International Silver Sticks tournament here in Vegas December 12-14.

Storm Midgets Take 2nd Banner of the year!
Thursday, December 04, 2014 -

The Nevada Storm midget A team went 4-0 on the weekend winning 6-4,6-5,5-4,7-2 to take home the banner at the wildcats thanksgiving tourney. The team played very well and stayed very discipline in the first two games which could be described as a UFC match. Through all of the penalties both ways and all of the cheap shots flying they were able to stay focused and score some big goals when it mattered. The team proved that they could compete at a very high A level. I was very proud of the boys for sticking together as a team throughout the entire weekend and everybody giving it everything they had when they were on the ice. The boys were all very happy to have taken home another banner from a hard fought weekend.
