Reminder that the following signed players are on tryouts on other teams:
F Sawyer Hunt (97) & D Jonas Gordon (96) at Canmore Eagles camp. F Keenan Haase (96) invited to Weyburn Red Wings camp. #KIJHL— Taylor Rocca (@taylorrocca) September 1, 2015
There are 30 players at camp. Eleven are returning players (or have spent some sort of time with the Nitros that were not recently signed). Four are recently signed players (Rota, van Steinburg, Moser, Bertioa). While the remaining 15 are battling for the remaining roster spots.
Now if you did the math like me, that's 11 returning + 3 on tryouts + 4 recently signed = 18 spots filled, when 20 are needed for a game night. That's a lot of competition for two spots. Now, as GM Mike Reid has said all summer: players, even returning players, have to earn their spot in the lineup.
See you at the camp!
