The Kootenay ICE are preparing to open their training camp Friday.
Head coach James Patrick says camp gives the coaching staff a chance to get to know the prospects who are vying for a roster spot.
“For the prospects, a lot of times its just putting a face to a name, getting to know them, getting the chance to introduce them to our organization and some of our core values.”
This year’s camp will feature touted prospect Carson Lambos who was picked second overall in this year’s bantam draft.
The ICE also parted ways with a goaltender today.
Carter Woodside is heading to the Regina Pats in exchange for a conditional 8th round draft pick.
The skills camp begins Friday, main camp starts Sunday.
