Las Vegas – Vincent Dekumbis, an awesome goal scorer and the only All-Star for the WSHL Las Vegas Storm, is skating for the NA3HL Texas Jr Brahmas. Two seasons ago at the Las Vegas Ice Center Vincent had 31 goals, 15 assists. He won the Fastest Skater Award when he went to the WSHL All-Star game. He was dealt to the WSHL Valencia Flyers who were in a playoff run and then moved onto other teams. Vincent, 20, is from Fribourg, Switzerland. 

There have been searches here on for Joey Allegrini, a very popular player with the WSHL Las Vegas Storm. Joey is now playing for the NAHL Kenai River Brown Bears. Seth Bergeron, from Las Vegas and a Storm alum, is with the NAHL Philadelphia Rebels.

There are repeated searches here for Teddy Astrom, a 23-goal scorer for the WSHL Las Vegas Storm two seasons ago. Teddy returned home to Sweden and is playing for HK Solleftea Division 1. He has 2 goals, 8 assists.

Isaiah Letendre from Red Earth Creek, Alberta, Canada, burned down the ice in dynamic performances and scored 31 goals two seasons ago for the Storm. He is now playing for the North Peace Navigators, a Junior B team in Alberta, Canada. The team plays at the Baytex Energy Center. Isaiah, one of the great players we’ve seen in town – who gave it all he had in every game – has 6 goals, 13 assists this season. As we write this there is an Extreme Cold Warning in Alberta – snowing now – and going down to minus-23 degrees this weekend.

There are four former Storm players – Nikita Pintusov, Melwin Thorsson, Jake McKenna and goalie Spencer Kozlowski – playing this season with the WSHL Valencia Flyers. Nikita has 25 goals, Melwin 6 goals, 21 assists, Jake is a premier defenseman and Spencer is a top goalie for the Flyers.
