Las Vegas – Jasper Fitzi, a hard working forward from Switzerland, returns to the lineup tonight for the WSHL Las Vegas Storm who take on the Phoenix Knights at the Las Vegas Ice Center. There is an early 6 pm faceoff for this game, the closing game of a three-game series.

Fitzi, 19, has 3 goals, 7 assists. He is listed at 5’11, 176. This is his first season with the Storm. He grew up in a small town St. Gallen, population of about 78,000 in Switzerland.

“Jasper Fitzi will be in the lineup Saturday night in a forward spot,” said Storm GM/Head coach Gabe Gauthier.

The Storm won the first two games of this series 14-0, 8-3 and are on a season-best five game win streak.

“Third games in a series like this are always tough because the opponent comes out even stronger after dropping the first two games,” Gauthier said.

The game will be play at the North Rink inside of the Las Vegas Ice Center.
