Las Vegas – There will be a new team the WSHL Las Vegas Storm will have to contend with this coming season. WSHL commissioner Ron White said the Kent Ravens – playing in the state of Washington – have joined the league. The Butte Cobras have dropped out.

White was at Roy Henderson’s magnificant Las Vegas Global Showcase last night at the Las Vegas Ice Center. Over 400 players from ages 13 to 20 are on over 20 teams who are skating before coaches and scouts from all parts of the USA.

White added the WSHL season-opening games will be on September 22.

Gabe Gauthier, GM and head coach of the WSHL Las Vegas Storm, was scouting for new players as well at the Global Showcase. There were an awesome number of skaters and goalies from Canada, Alaska, California, Colorado, Texas plus hometown Las Vegas players. It was the biggest turnout not only in numbers but in the quality of the skaters looking for teams.

Gauther added that tryouts for the WSHL Las Vegas Storm junior team will be in late August at the Ice Center.
