Lakers Happy With Mini-Camp
“The skaters looked good and were skating hard, showing a lot of interest and eager to play,” head coach Kris Jacobs said.
The camp drew 36 prospects and veterans, a turnout the team hopes to replicate or improve upon when they hold their second camp, at an unconfirmed date, in Sarnia at the RBC Centre.
After finishing last in the Great Lakes Junior C league last season, the Lakers are hoping to be ready for a better performance this season when the puck drops on their season September 10 on the road in Essex. Wallaceburg will host the Dresden Jr. Kings September 11 for their own home opener. This season, the Lakers will also host four home games on Walpole Island, with the first game on Walpole taking place October 3 against Mooretown.
“Last season is history now,” stated Wallaceburg General Manager Jim McCrea, in an earlier interview with CKSN. “This season we will do our best to improve our record. Our staff have been scouting since January for the upcoming season. The new staff are a group of qualified people with great goals. I think they will produce a great product on the ice and a great place for our players.”
