“I packed up all of my stuff and drove my truck out here,” Sengvongxay said. “I got the call and two days later we were going to Philadelphia. I got here the day before the game, and that was pretty much it.”
“The guys took me in right away. I love the guys here. We get along really well,” Sengvongxay said. “It’s the best organization I’ve played for out of my three years and four teams. Everything is done for you and they treat you really great.”
In late October, the Tomahawks pulled the trigger on a series of transactions to retool their roster. Toby Sengvongxay was a key part of that. The veteran defenseman was acquired from the Austin Bruins.
The Luverne, Minnesota native was a star for Luverne High School prior to joining the Coulee Region Chill in 2015-16. He quickly established himself as a NAHL regular.
Toby quickly provided an veteran influence the Tomahawks needed and was a mainstay in every situation on the ice. In addition, he proved to be a community asset as he was a popular player among Tomahawks fans.
