New Kids In Town

What better way to celebrate the arrival of June than to hit the ice for hockey practice!

This weekend, 21 skaters and 3 goaltenders will hit the ice at the Penhold Multiplex for the 2012 Red Deer Rebels Spring Prospects Camp.

It's the Friday of a short work week.  I am a full practitioner of 'Mail It In' Fridays so in honour of that here are a few not-so-in-depth thoughts...

Back From Exile

Howdy, kids!

Allow me to (re)introduce myself.  My name is Troy and today I'm returning from a bit of a sabbatical from the blogosphere.  It was a good break for me as I'm sure it was for all of you who were spared from reading my ramblings for a few weeks :)

I figured it was time to check in now that the Red Deer Rebels have officially released the schedule for their 2012 spring prospects camp, which will once again take place at the Penhold Multiplex...

 Friday, June 1st             3:00PM – 5:00PM
Saturday, June 2nd        3:45PM – 5:45PM
Sunday, June 3rd           9:00AM – 11:00AM

All sessions are open to the public.

Draft Day Dawns For Rebels

[  NOTE - Diving into any sort of draft analysis is a new thing for this particular reporter so do bear with me and feel free to add some input of your own :)  ]

The 2012 WHL Bantam Draft takes place tomorrow (Thursday).

After the Draft Lottery took place shortly after the end of the regular season, I received a pair of interesting tweets (@Troy_Gillard) from one of my hockey followers...

"Do you think the scouting staff can get it right this time? Haven't much success in the draft recently."

"Scouting staff needs to do a better job following the easy rd 1 & 2 picks."

Sutter Era Over In Bentley

As it turns out... Brent isn't the only Sutter who won't be coaching the same club next season.

The Bentley Generals have parted ways with Brian Sutter.
