#1 Most Searched Story – The World of House Hockey with Kimmie Zucker

Readers here dig deep into our archives each and every day. There are hundreds and hundreds of stories about Vegas Hockey on this website. The most read is the Last Skate at the Santa Fe Stations story. However this past week this particular story – The World of House Hockey – Kimmie Zucker – is the #1 most searched. It was written and posted here three years ago.

Las Vegas – “Are you writing about me again – one more time,” house hockey player Paige Nowag of Team Red was asking at the Las Vegas Ice Center on Flamingo Ave last night.

To her left was linemate Kimmie Zucker who laughed real hard in the lobby of the ice rink.

“What’s going on?” asked teenage playmaker Jimmy Samuels, leaning on his hockey stick.

And then, on a very cold winter night at the Las Vegas Ice Center, it all came flashing back.

The Paige Nowag story.

On a summer night about a year ago over at the Crystal Palace roller rink, Paige Nowag was skating in a house game. So was her best rink pal teenage Kimmie Zucker. At the red line – the center of the rink – there was an earthquake shaker of a collision. Somehow, someway, Paige and Kimmie ran into each other and Paige was on the floor. 

As Kimmie leaned over, Paige said she was hurt bad, couldn’t get up, needed help. She cried out ‘oh, my gosh.’ At last a hockey dad went over the rink wall, gently picked up Paige, took her to the Crystal Palace area where there are rows of tables.

Paige was placed onto the floor as a small crowd gathered around her.

Then, Jason Zucker – yes, that Jason Zucker of the NHL Minnesota Wild – came over to take a look.

“Elevate her left leg. Let me take a look,” Jason said. He carefully touched her left ankle which was beginning to swell.

When Dr Jason was finished, medics were called.


Last night, Paige, Kimmie and Jimmy Samuels were on Team Red which beat Team Blue 6-3. Jimmy had 4 assists. 

Or maybe he had one goal, three assists?

His hockey dad Rich was at the rinkboards and said he had hard evidence.

At least that’s what he said he saw on his camera.   

“I know Jimmy scored a goal. Look at this,” he said. 

There was a picture of a red 29 in front of the Team Blue net.  There was a black hockey stick in front of red 29.

“That’s Jimmy’s stick. He scored the goal,” Rich said while looking deep into the back of his camera. He zoomed in on the Big Picture. 

“Don’t write about that,” Jimmy said. “I’m good with the 4 assists.”
