Storm Eliminated from WSHL Playoffs, 2-0 against Ontario
Monday, March 09, 2015 - The Las Vegas Storm were eliminated, two games to none by the Ontario Avalanche during their inaugural season in the Western States Hockey League. Veteran players Kyle Pacheco and Brandon Bavis each registered goals for the Storm.

Yes, 30-goal scorer Beau Ricketts of Las Vegas was at the final team dinner on Sunday night. The WSHL Las Vegas Storm coaches and players got together to salute the 20 year old players who are graduating. An official team photo, taken expertly by John Brooks, was given to each skater. For the returning players, evaluations are scheduled for this week.

“This was a fun and interesting first year,” Coach Gabe Gauthier said. “We exceeded expectations for an expansion team and we will continue the success. Recruiting has started. We have a tremendous amount of interest from players who want to try out for next season.

“We will have our Open Camp June 25-27 at the Las Vegas Center. Information will go online on our team website this week.”

Meanwhile, the folks at the Ice Center snack bar say they are fully stocked with Skittles and Ice Blue Powerades which were the favorite pre-game fuel by many of the Storm players including Brandon Bavis. He is one of the graduates and will be missed as will be captain Kyle Pacheco who always gave it his all, no matter what the score.

Beau Ricketts has offers to continue playing the game.

He will make a decision shortly.

Storm Eliminates Phoenix Form Playoff Contention, Win Series 2-1
Storm Eliminates Phoenix Form Playoff Contention, Win Series 2-1
Monday, February 23, 2015 -

Veteran assistant Captain Beau Ricketts led the way with and 8 goal weekend as the Las Vegas Storm beat the Phoenix Knights two games to one. It was an important series for Las Vegas who is looking to build momentum heading into their final regular season games against the league leading Fresno Monsters February 26th -28th. All three Storm goalies (Patrik Jokela, Jaedon McConnell, and Brian Coppola) saw action on the weekend. However, it was McConnell who stole the show in game two, turning away 37 shots in huge 7-4 win against a Knights team that never seemed to go away.

During game one, the Las Vegas Storm partnered with the Vegas Wants NHL Hockey group to host an event in conjunction with the Storm game. With nearly 400 people in attendance the energy in the building was electric, especially when the Storm broke out to an early 3-0 lead. Phoenix would not go away though and came back to even the score at 4 apiece. It was red-hot Ricketts that would eventually break the tie towards the end of the second period and add an insurance goal in the third to complete his hat trick and send the near sellout crowd into a frenzy.

Game two was almost deju-vu of game one with Ricketts netting 4 goals and the Storm breaking a 4-4 tie early in the third while never looking back en route to a 7-4 victory. Las Vegas also got points from Moritz Matzka, who also finished with one goal and one assist. Others who scored for the Storm included Brandon Bavis and Kyle Pacheco, who each put in one. In addition, the home town squad received assists from Nikita Larionov, who had two and Braxton Davis, Arrigo Burgener, Philip Traxler, Nikita Tsvetov, Jiri Ryyppo, Nathan Fournier, and Felix Brunner, who each chipped in one.

 Kyle Pacheco's two goal game and Brian Cappola's 33 saves weren't enough for Las Vegas as they lost the finale 8-5 to Phoenix. On home ice Las Vegas was 11-10-3 this season and will officially play the Ontario Avalanche in a best of three playoff series beginning March 6th. All games will be played at Ontario's home rink, Center Ice Arena

Las Vegas Storm Take on the Bombers of Long Beach in WSHL Playoff Hunt Battle
Thursday, February 12, 2015 -

The Las Vegas Storm are only a few points away from capturing their first playoff spot in the organization’s inaugural season. Las Vegas will travel to Long Beach, California take on a tough Bombers squad that sits in third place of the WSHL’s Pacific division. The bombers are led by Tomas Nemeth, Patrik Johansson, Reinis Vitolins, and Johan Beatty who have all eclipsed the fifty point mark on the year thus far.

The Storm will need to be firing on all cylinders this weekend and bring the same intensity seen by the home town crowd just two weeks ago when the San Diego Gulls visited the Las Vegas Ice Center. The Storm won that series 2-1 thanks to goaltender, Patrik Jokela, who will look to continue his stellar play in southern California to propel a young Storm team into the Western States playoffs. The difference makers for Las Vegas in the series will need to be Arrigo Burgener (15g), Beau Ricketts (22g) and Kyle Pacheco (14g). In order to keep pace with the high powered Bombers, who average nearly 5 goals per game, the trio must find ways to generate quality scoring opportunities. Ricketts has been the most consistent recently, finding the back of the net four times in his last six games. On the defensive end, Brandon Bavis, Alkhas Kochkarev, Moritz Matzka, and hard hitting Nathan Fournier were staples in holding the Gulls to under four goals per game back in the late January series. Their ability to make quick, tape to tape passes out the defensive zone will go a long way in slowing down Long Beach’s scoring chances.  

Head Coach of the Storm, Gabe Gauthier, is no stranger to playoff success. During his time in the BCHL and NCAA DI University of Denver, Gauthier led the Pioneers to consecutive national titles in 2004 and 2005, while being named to the NCAA all-tournament team in 2005. His experience along with assistants Matt Johnson and Evan Zucker, brother of break-out NHL player Jason Zucker, will help guide the Storm into a tough Pacific division playoff battle. Be sure to see the Las Vegas Storm in their final home stand of the 2014-2015 season February 19th-21st at the Las Vegas Ice Center against the Phoenix Knights. As always, $10 for adults, $5 for children, and free for all kids wearing their NV Storm travel or house league jerseys.

Thursday, February 05, 2015 -

Coach Gabe, has been contacted frequently by NCAA DIII and ACHA collegiate programs who are interested in a variety of Storm players. Gauthier added, " It's an exciting time for all of us.

He went on to add that, "None of the this would have been accomplished without the continued passionate support from our ownership. John and Kirk Brooks are here for the same reason my coaching staff and I are, and that's to build elite hockey in Las Vegas and move athletes to the next level." The Storm received a brand new travel bus for the 2014-2015 season and practice in a state of the art facility (Las Vegas Ice Center) equipped with a weight room, skating treadmill and shooting room readily available for all players.

After a two games to one series victory over the San Diego Gull, the Storm, sit in 5th place in the Pacific division of the Western States Hockey League. They now lead the 6th place Gulls by seven team points. The Top 6 teams in each division advance to the playoffs. The Storm have nine regular season games remaining, starting at Long Beach (Feb 13-15), home against the Phoenix Knights (Feb 19-21) and closing out the regular season on the road at Fresno (Feb 26-28).
