Jason Zucker – the first Las Vegas player in the National Hockey League

 

Monday, August 1, 2016

Las Vegas – Jason Zucker of the NHL Minnesota Wild leads the Vegas 100 – the best hometown players as voted by the readers of Vegashockey.net

Jason grew up in Las Vegas playing ice hockey at the Las Vegas Ice Center on Flamingo Avenue and roller hockey at Crystal Palace on North Rancho Drive.

The Vegas 100 includes Micah Sanford, the first Las Vegas player to play on the AAA level hockey in Vail, Colorado, first in junior hockey with the BCHL Chilliwack Chiefs and first in NCAA Division One hockey at Nebraska-Omaha. Micah led the way.

There was heavy voting for the women in hockey with Megan Myers getting many votes as the first Las Vegas player in women’s professional hockey. She plays for the Boston Blades.

One of the youngest inductees is Ashley Printzen, a gifted goal scorer who last season played on an AAA team in Dallas. Her older brother Cody was also voted in. He plays in the Nevada Storm program at the Las Vegas Ice Center.
