Las Vegas native, Thunderbirds standout Bonaldi nabs monthly USPHL accolades


The USPHL has announced that Las Vegas Thunderbirds’ blueliner Nick Bonaldi is the Pacific Division Defenseman of the Month.

Not only did he show stellar defense in the month of November as a plus-9 with 11 blocked shots and five hits, but Bonaldi, a 2003-born Las Vegas native, was also able to show off his offensive skills.

In November he picked up 15 points with four goals and 11 assists putting him in the No. 3 spot for points on the T-Birds. He currently has 30 points with five goals and 25 assists and is a crucial part of Las Vegas getting the puck in the net.

Prior to junior hockey, Bonaldi skated for the Las Vegas Storm.
