The Nelson Amigos want to tell everyone what happened during their trip to Las Vegas after the local squad captured the 45-plus Division at the recent Men's Hockey tournament in the desert.

The Amigos took home the top prize in the Lefty Wilson Division 45-plus Tournament earlier this month with a 7-2 victory over Moberly Lakers.

Moberly is a combined squad of players from Northern Alberta and Northern B.C..

Nelson opened the tournament with a narrow 9-8 victory over the same Lakers squad. The Amigos rallied from a 3-0 deficit to defeat Moberly.

Game 2 saw the Amigos dump Milton Ontario Toros 5-1 before completing the round robin draw with a 4-1 decision over Mooseknuckles from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Mallard's Source for sports would like to salute the Amigos as Team of the Week.

The Amigos consist of players from the Kootenay and Okanagan regions.

The team includes, Larry Bomak, Pete Taillon, Doug Harrison, Dean Centrone, Ron Van Zanden, Simon Wheeldon, Len Maida, Jody Burk, Shawn Swail, Darrell MacKay, Ricky Lane, Brent Mowery, Ian Perrault, and Ron Ewanyshen.
