“Morgan Marinello really played well in the net making clutch saves all throughout the tournament. None bigger than the few he stole in the semis and finals.
“Nick Robone is the ever consistent performer. Always executes and is a clutch time performer. His biggest games were in the semis and finals.
“Billy Tufano is the always the guy you want on the floor for the big moment. He delivered all tournament on both offense and defense. Whether it was the game tying goal in the final 20 seconds to go to a crucial faceoff win and subsequent shot block in OT, he’s always dependable.
“Kris Carter was our leading scorer. His ability to shoot the puck is one of the best in Las Vegas. He is also a beast on the puck using his strength to fend off defenders and make plays.
“Anthony Robone joined the team late after having to miss our Friday game. He played a critical role in a forecheck and also chipped in on the scoring including the championship goal.”
