In The NHL

Eleven Storm players have reached the NHL, the highest level of hockey in the world. Bill Thomas was the first to appear, making his appearance for the Pheonix Coyotes in 2007. Thomas played for Pheonix, Pittsburgh and Florida from 2007-09 and 2010-12. Defenseman Jack Hillen (TC: 2003-04) played in 304 NHL games from 2007-15, the longest a former Storm player has skated in the NHL. Jaden Schwartz, a 2010 first-round pick of the St. Louis Blues, has scored the most goals and points of any past Tri-City player to make the NHL. Goaltender Pheonix Copley (TC: 2011-12) is the last Storm player to make the NHL, competing in one game for the St. Louis Blues in 2016.
