Senko Returns As Bombers Set To Host Rhinos

by Bombers Staff

The Long Beach Bombers are proud to announce the return of veteran defenseman, Oleg Senko. The 6’5, 230-lb left shot missed the entire 2017-2018 WSHL season, while serving in the Russian Army. Senko was born February 23, 1999, and has played in 108 games for Long Beach.

The two-year WSHL veteran has amassed 5G-34A-127PIMs in his career. Prior to his arrival in Long Beach, as a 16 year-old, the Moscow native attended Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy, in Kelowna, British Columbia. Senko is a hulking defensive defenseman, that has a long history of shutting down the WSHL’s most elite offensive talents. He will instantly become the most veteran Bombers defenseman, by a whopping 100 WSHL games played. Bombers goaltender, and Senko’s teammate, Domenic Bossetti, said, "It’s good to have him back, and hopefully he can pick up right where he left off. It will be nice adding a big body to our new defensive unit."

Long Beach Bombers Head Coach & General Manager, Chris White, commented, “We are thrilled to have Oleg back, and it couldn’t come at a better time. We have lost two of our last four games, and this will most certainly be a shot in the arm. Especially, as the 2018 Thorne Cup Champion El Paso Rhinos make their way to town, for a three-game series, this weekend. Oleg is the best defensive defenseman I have seen, in the WSHL. He has been the cause for many a nightmare, for our opponents’ top line. Beyond his abilities on the ice, he is a great teammate, and always lightens the mood. His return will not only bolster our defense, but also give us some options within our lineup. We really could have used him last year, but his addition is going to make a huge impact on our current season.”
