    Cherry Creek Alumni Forward Payne Pent leading the El Paso Rhinos as Captain.
    Bruin Proud!


    For Payne Pent, he simply wanted an opportunity to continue playing hockey after the 2020-21 season with Cherry Creek High School.

    The El Paso Rhinos NA3HL chose Pent in the first round (29th overall) of the 2021 North American 3 Hockey League Draft and it's been all positive since then.
