Laredo Bucks getting ready for their triumphant return

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - It’s a great day for hockey fans in Laredo, as the Bucks make their triumphant return to the Gateway City.

After six years of being without a hockey team, the USACHL has decided to bring hockey back, as well as the Bucks name that we have all grown to love.

The USACHL team is made of young talented players who are looking to make their start as a hockey player and possibly get drafted to the NHL.

On this year’s team is Laredo native John Canales. Canales was a hockey for the Laredo Junior Bucks back in 2011 and hopes to bring his talent and love of the game to the ice.

Back in 2012, the CHL Laredo Bucks discontinued its operations, which left a void for those who love the sport.

This Friday the Bucks will be back in action as they are set to take on the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees at 7 p.m.
