Bring NHL Hockey to Las Vegas Event
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - This Thursday February 19, 2015 The Las Vegas Storm cordially invites you all to attend the game at 6:00pm at The Las Vegas Ice Center as they take on the Phoenix Knights. Tickets are $10, but entry is FREE for all kids wearing a hockey jersey of any kind. The excitement of having the first NHL franchise coming to Vegas looms closer with your continued support in making season ticket deposits. The new potential ownership groups have decided to make this night a special one for hockey fans in the community and for youth hockey in Las Vegas by hosting a Bring Hockey to Vegas party during the Storm Junior game. The ownership groups will be providing pizza and t-shirts for all the fans in attendance along with having representatives there to take season ticket deposits and to discuss this great opportunity for NHL hockey in Las Vegas.

Between the 1st and 2nd period a photo will be taken with all the kids and the ownership group (possibly a celebrity or two). Not to mention, we will have a cash prize chuck a puck between the second and third period. This will be a great media event with a live radio broadcast and is just one part of what we need to do to show the NHL we are ready to support big time professional hockey!

Storm Mites Win it All!
Tuesday, February 17, 2015 -

The NV Storm Mites captured their first tournament banner over the Presidents’ Day Holiday. With a record of 4-1-0 and outscoring their opponents 56-24, the Mite team went into the Championship game facing the team who handed them their only loss, the LA Jr. Kings and who scored an incredible 75 goals. Justin Robbins started the team off with the first goal of the game. The Kings fought back with 2 goals, bringing the score to 1-2 before Ryan Williams tied the game up w...ith another Storm goal. The Kings were not going to give up that easily and put another goal on the board until Chase Nehring and Kaden Mulcahy put the Storm back in the lead and bringing the score 4-3. The Kings then caught a breakaway and scored to tie the game. With 1:30 left in the game, the Kings punched through the Storm defense to pull ahead 5-4. The Storm was not giving up, and Ryan Williams scored with :40 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and send it into overtime. Goalie Logan Perez stopped numerous shot attempts by the Kings, including a penalty shot in OT, and then the Storm offense took over, getting the puck back down the ice. Caden Ross scored the winning wrap around goal to end the sudden death overtime and bring home the banner.

 

Nevada Storm Bantam AA win the State Championship and advance to the U.S. Nationals
Wednesday, February 04, 2015 -

-Las Vegas, NV.

In a tough, gritty state playoff between the Nevada Storm and Las Vegas Jr. Wranglers Bantam AA squads the Storm swept the ‘Best of Three’ series, two games to none, and will represent Nevada at the U.S. Nationals in late March.

The city series between the two clubs began Friday night at the Las Vegas Ice Center with the Storm beating the Jr. Wranglers 5-2 in front of a packed house. Steven Avalone (1), Darion Conway (1), Justin Brooks (1), and Cody Printzen (2) goals proved to be too much for Jr. Wrangler net minder, Luke Fundator, who had some spectacular saves throughout the game. Anthony Bonaldi held strong in net for the Storm, stopping 18 of the 20 shots thrown his way.

Sunday morning (Game two), at the Sobe Ice Arena, saw a determined Jr. Wranglers squad throw everything they had at the Nevada Storm but the Storm proved to be too much for the never quit Jr. Wranglers. Romeo Scallion and Steven Avalone each scored for the Storm in the series finale while goalie, David ‘Lamont’ Turner, had phenomenal saves through out to record his 5th shutout of the year and lead the Nevada Storm to a 2-0 victory.

The Nevada Storm would like to thank Jr. Wranglers’ President Matt Edlin, team manager Laure Norman, Head Coach Ken Quinney, and the entire Las Vegas Jr. Wranglers program for being great hosts and competitors during the city series. Lastly, we wanted to recognize all the hard work and dedication from Nevada Amateur Hockey Association President, Greg Yochum for putting on an outstanding event.

 

 

 

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.

Bantam AA Presidents Day Champions
Tuesday, February 17, 2015 -

Congratulations to our Bantam AA team for winning gold in the Las Vegas Ice Center's annual Presidents Day tournament! The championship game saw the Storm battle a gritty Utah golden Eagles squad for the title. A combination of solid defense and fantastic goaltending by Anthony Bonaldi helped lead the Storm to victory.   Storm got its first goal from Romeo Scallion on a tipped John Hallett shot to take the lead in the 1st.  After a scoreless 2nd Steven Avalone's wrister from Cameron Zucker broke a 1-1 tie that would be the games last score with 12:29 to go.  From there Bonaldi shut down the Eagles at every turn saving 24 of 25 including 20 in a row and helped the Storm to kill a 5 minute major at the end of the game.  Romeo Scallion lead the Storm in scoring with 7 goals with Steven Avalone adding 5.  Anthony Bonaldi 4-0 for the tourney saved 76 of 79 shots (96.2%), recorded his 5th shutout of the season and extended his record to 17-8.  This is the Storm Bantam AA's 2nd tournament victory of the season along with being crowned the Nevada Bantam AA State Champions and the Arizona Youth Hockey League Bantam Tier II champions it has been a pretty good month.     

The Storm Mites also took home the gold in their tournament in Valencia, CA!

The Nevada Storm Purple Squirt B team, Pee Wee A, and Midget A teams al...l fell just short of capturing banners Monday. The Squirts were defeated by the Long Beach Ice Dogs in a close contest, 3-1. In the Pee Wee A division, the Glenlake Hawks were just too much for a resilient Storm team coached by Matt Johnson. They really fought all the way to final buzzer but would lose 2-0. Lastly, the Midget A team took home second place after an all star like effort from goalie JP Paul.

Thank you once again to all parents, players, and coaches for representing the organization in a classy, respectful, and dedicated manner. We are proud to call all of you members of the Nevada Storm hockey family.

 
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.
