KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Almost 20 games into the new USHL season, the Tri-City Storm are sitting at sixth place in the Western Conference with a nearly .500 record. The organization currently boasts eight wins and nine losses.

The team is new. Many pieces from last season’s Anderson Cup-winning squad have departed for college or elsewhere. For President of Hockey Operations Anthony Noreen, the process is more important than the results at this stage.

“That’s the only thing we’re worried about at this point in the season, is making sure that there’s forward growth, making sure that there’s progress, making sure that our guys are getting better and that every time they go out on the ice they feel more prepared, they feel better-suited to have success and that we’re playing our best hockey come the end of the year,” Noreen told Local4 Tuesday.

The USHL regular season runs through April 22.
