Chief hopefuls hitting ice at spring camp

Next season's Chilliwack Chief stars start their journey this weekend as the team hosts its annual spring camp at Prospera Centre.

The Chilliwack Chiefs hope they’ll see the stars of tomorrow this weekend as the team hosts its annual spring camp at Prospera Centre.

Past camps have provided a first look at players who went on to significant roles with the Chiefs, including 2012-13 scoring star Luke Esposito.

Approximately 100 players, making up six teams, will each play four games beginning Friday afternoon.

Fans are welcome to attend.

Friday’s schedule includes scrimmages at 3, 4:40 and 6:30 p.m. each lasting about an hour and a half.

Saturday’s schedule includes scrimmages at 8, 9:40 and 11:30 a.m.

A goaltending session runs from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. followed by three more scrimmages at 4, 5:40 and 7:30 p.m.

Sunday’s schedule includes scrimmages at 8, 9:25 and 11 a.m.

New head coach/general manager Jason Tatarnic will be evaluating, and hoping to get a few commitments, as he reloads the roster heading into the team’s 25th anniversary season.
