Terriers look for their next players

Terriers head coach Mat Hehr said he is pleased with the results of the team’s spring camp held at the Farrell Agencies Arena on the weekend.

“It was very good,” he said, adding co-hosting the camp with the AAA Midget RawTec Maulers proved a solid option for the Junior franchise.

“It was a very successful weekend, doing it with the Maulers. Moving forward, it’s probably the way it will stay,” he said.

With the Maulers co-hosting, younger players attended the camp.

“It was a great chance to look at some (Bantam) draft eligible players,” said Hehr.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League Bantam Draft will be held in June and Hehr said there were players at the camp “that showed really well,” meaning they will be part of the discussion leading up to the draft.

While the camp was a chance to evaluate younger players who may fit into the Terriers’ plans down the road, there were others who could make the squad at the fall camp, said Hehr.

“Some local guys had a great camp,” he said, adding their showing on the weekend gave him greater confidence that they can contribute in the fall.

The combined camp attracted about 200 players, which meant a lot of talent to evaluate in a short time. Hehr said to do that he had “lots of scouts out there evaluating talent for us.”

Hehr said he had discussions on the weekend with the scouts regarding players, and there will be follow-up talks, especially regarding Bantam draft eligible players.
