Dates to watch

Ho-ho-ho.

For junior hockey fans, it’s like Christmas in July. Much like a child staring at the presents under the tree and imagining what treasures lie within, Outlaws fans are looking at their calendars and imagining what players will comprise this year’s title defense.

A few dates to circle.

August 18-21, 2016 (Mission Leisure Center). The Outlaws hold their prospects camp. A chance for young players looking to impress the Outlaws brass, while for some vets, a chance to show they want to play a bigger role.

September 2, 2016 (Maple Ridge). The Outlaws lone preseason game against a Flames team that swapped goalie Jason Sandhu and forward Dale Howell to the Nelson Leafs for 3 year junior vet Austin Lindsay.

September 8, 2016 (Surrey). The Outlaws open the regular season against the Knights on a Thursday night.

September 10, 2016 (MLC). The Outlaws play in front of the hometown fans for the first time since winning the PJHL crown, along with a trip to Victoria for the Cyclone Taylor Cup.

I’ll have a look at some of this year’s key players after Training Camp, in late August.
