Two premier hometown Las Vegas defensemen – Alec Mono and Eric Williams – will skate for the nationally-ranked UNLV Rebels ACHA D1 hockey team this fall.

Head coach Anthony Greener said “both will be great with us this coming season.

“Mono will be the puck moving defenseman who will get the first puck out of the zone and also jump into the play offensively – and I have no worries he will be the first d-man back too,” Greener said.

“Eric brings the same and he will be an added bonus to our power play with his extremely hard shot from the point area.”

Greener added the Rebels game schedule will soon be formally announced.
