Darion Conaway is one of those players – he’s the latest local product to sign with the Las Vegas Thunderbirds. He caught the attention of Thunderbirds coach Dave Hyrsky at a recent USHL camp.

“Darion is another local product who we had a chance to see at the Tri-City Storm camp,” said Hyrsky. “Darion has explosive speed and moves the puck well. He is one of those players who can play defense on the power play and play a good two-way game up front.”

Before he puts on the Thunderbirds jersey Conaway has a trip to Hawaii in July. He is a member of the Sin City Barons inline hockey team from Las Vegas which will compete at the Junior Olympics.
