It may not be part of the official 2013 Las Vegas Wranglers training camp, but many of the hockey players are undergoing a test of courage this week. Today and Tuesday, October 8, 2013, several Wranglers are exchanging their hockey pads and gear for a jumpsuit as they experience SkyJump at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.
