Cranbrook, BC – The Kootenay ICE Hockey Club will open their 2008 Western Hockey League Training Camp Thursday, August 28 at 10:00 am. This year’s Training Camp will once again combine rookie-aged players (players born in 1993), with veteran players (players born in 1988 to 1992). All ice sessions will take place at the Cranbrook Rec Plex.
“Training Camp is an exciting start to the season. The camp provides the opportunity for our coaches and scouting staff to see and evaluate our recently drafted players, while monitoring the progress of our veteran and list players. With a smaller number of athletes attending camp, we expect the competition level to be very high,” commented Director of Scouting Garnet Kazuik.
A total of 60 players have been invited to Training Camp, including 16 players from last years team. All Training Camp sessions will be open to the public.
