Ice brass continues to prepare players for upcoming BCMMHL season
The Kootenay Ice Major Midget squad was back on the ice this weekend at the NDCC Arena gearing up for the upcoming season.
The Ice, part of the 11-team B.C. Major Midget Hockey League, is coached by Mario DiBella and assistant Sean Dooley.
The staff put the team through practice Saturday before the players was split up for the intra-squad game Sunday morning.
More than 50 players attended the three-day camp earlier the month.
Following the tryout camp some players were released as the coaching staff looked to get down to a manageable number.
Some of the players signed include Cole Arcuri of Nelson and Scott
Davidson and Jake Lucchini of Trail.
Other committed to the program include Seth Schmidt and Jason Richter of Cranbrook, Quinn Klimchuk and Darren Medeiros of Castlegar, Colby Livingstone of Creston, Mitch Foyle of Beaver Valley, Jeremy McGregor of Grand Forks and Craig Martin of Trail.
The B.C. Major Midget Hockey League is for players 15, 16 and 17 year old.
In 2010-11 the Kootenay Ice finished 10th overall with an 8-25-7 record.
DiBella said the coaching staff is looking for a few exhibition games against Okanagan competition during the Labor Day weekend.
