Coming This Summer…a once in a lifetime hockey adventure…based on a true story…


By Lee Samuels and Mary Cate Zurfluh

Not all goal scorers are created equal. Whatever the great goal scorer The Genuis thinks happens. If he wants to score a goal, he scores. If he wants to wear Anthony Greener’s famous #96 Rebels jersey, he wears it during the game. If he wants to change the score on the scoreboard, numbers start flashing. And he is partnered with two mean cats the Jokers who patrol on the ice for protection purposes.

Las Vegas coaches Rob Pallin and Anthony Greener have united on a Las Vegas team to put a stop to all of this at the annual Summer Blast ’19 here in Las Vegas. Vegas Hockey’s star reporter Bethany Drysdale will be at the boards writing about the game. Skitters, the baby rink kitten who wanders onto wrong benches during most games will have her own unreal adventure going on.
