Senko Advances At Fargo Force USHL Tryout Camp

by Ron White

Two-year Long Beach Bombers veteran, Oleg Senko ('99) is currently in Fargo, North Dakota for the Fargo Force (USHL) Tryout Camp. The big Russian defender made it through the initial cut, when the 70-player group was whittled-down to 30. On Monday, Senko had 1G-1A in a 2-2 tie. Oleg was invited to skate with the Force in February, and received an invitation to the camp, as a result.

In his two seasons with Long Beach, he has improved immensely. In 2015-2016, he was honored as the team's Defensive Rookie of the Year. His game seems to elevate against the top opponents, and come playoff time. Senko's fate is yet to be determined, but at the very least, he is gaining very valuable experience that should help propel his development.
