UNLV Hockey Coach Nick Robone Released From Hospital After Vegas Shooting

UNLV hockey coach Nick Robone was among the hundreds injured in the Las Vegas shooting on Oct. 1.

This week, Robone was finally released from the hospital.

The 28-year-old assistant coach took to social media to release a statement after being released from the hospital. Robone was with his brother Anthony, who is a paramedic, when he was shot at the concert. The bullet barely missed his lung.

“I quickly want to thank a few groups of people,” Robone wrote. “First, the entire staff at Sunrise Hospital for their professionalism and generosity. Second, TopGolf Las Vegas for their overwhelming support and kindness. Next, the UNLV Men’s Ice Hockey Program. These guys made it easy for me stay part of something I am very passionate about.

“Lastly, my brother Anthony Robono, who never left my side, friends, family and even strangers. You’ve all shown me a sense of compassion that I’ll be spending the rest of my life repaying.”

Ok, you'll be seeing me around now. THANK YOU, for being my staple during all this. Look forward to helping others now. #VegasStrong pic.twitter.com/3RytnEuYCM
