For Mesa native Thorstad, return to USPHL’s Mustangs best chance for national championship


The USPHL’s Ogden Mustangs have announced that forward Tucker Thorstad will be returning to the Mustangs for his third straight year.

“I feel that me and some of the guys have unfinished business,” said Thorstad, a Mesa native. “I want to bring Ogden their first national championship title. The fans and community deserve it.”

Ogden coach Kenny Orlando said Thorstad is “someone who wants what’s best for the group at all times. He is a very likable and coachable guy, he has a deceptive skill set and bag of tricks, but when he sticks to that power forward style, he has the ability to change games.”

Thorstad has posted 40 points (16 goals, 24 assists) in his 87 regular-season games with the Mustangs.

When asked about how the group will best their chances at a championship, Thorstad answered confidently.

“We have the depth on our roster and the team desire to do it,” Thorstad said. “We all need to buy in to the systems and keep the same goal for the duration of the year.”
