Nevada White is headed back to Steamboat from the Front Range to play for the Wranglers, but he won’t get to hit the ice until the New Year because of surgery.
Last year, Nevada wore jersey #5 and was a solid force for the Steamboat squad. Wrangler co-owner Brent Pearson billeted Nevada last season, and knows him well. “Nevada is a big body forward who has good hands and a long stick. He has a heavy shot and is not afraid of the nasty part of the game and the heavy traffic areas. Nevada is also a defensively responsible player who will try to position himself in the right locations. He has a long road back after hip surgery but the benefits of the surgery will be sure to be reaped with a much freer, flexible and more powerful stride. “
Before playing for the Wranglers, Nevada played for the U16AAA team at Evolution Elite Hockey Academy.
Nevada writes, “I am excited to be back in Steamboat to do what I love. I’ll have to miss half the season due to hip surgery, but I’m predicting another awesome year for the team, and even better hockey for the Steamboat fans.”
The Steamboat Wranglers are the newest team to join the Western States Hockey League.

The WSHL is the second largest junior hockey league in North America, with 30 teams in 14 states. The Wranglers are part of the Mountain Division of the WSHL.
