Las Vegas – He makes goal scoring look so easy.

Nikita Pintusov, a powerful force and a 46-goal scorer for the WSHL Las Vegas Storm last winter, was back on the ice in a team tryout skate on Saturday evening at the Las Vegas Ice Center. Nikita is from Belarus.

Others on the ice – and all worked hard – included Vegas Hockey’s Defenseman of the Year Jake McKenna and Tyler Brooks of Las Vegas. This will be McKenna’s 4th season with the Storm. Rhett Bruckner of Las Vegas was one of three goalies.

From the Blue Line – Vito Carlo of Las Vegas was on the ice getting a skate in before he departs in a few days to the Humboldt Broncos in Saskatchewan
