Special to Vegas Hockey

Las Vegas – Bigtime goalie Colton Miller got the shutout and Anthony Juric scored twice while Anthony Mazza and Heath Mensch also scored for the Wally Lacroix-coached AA Vegas Golden Knights 16u who are on a historic run of 3-0-0 at the Silver Stick Regionals here at the Sobe Ice Arena.

The Vegas Jr Golden Knights beat the Pasadena Maple Leafs 4-0.

And all of a sudden the Vegas Jr Golden Knights 16u who were in an original field of 14 teams are in the elite Final 8.

Lacroix said “Colton Miller played well in the net, our young men played a solid responsible defensive hockey game. Our compete level was high. Happy with our effort. Tomorrow we play in a Quarter-Final playoff game at 3 pm at the Sobe. Just not sure yet who we will be playing.”

The AA Vegas Jr Golden Knights 16u are the defending National Champions.
