The Casper Coyotes, one of the five new expansion teams playing in the Western States Hockey League (WSHL) this season, are kicking things off in Wyoming on August 25th. This season begins with the Coyotes’ inaugural training camp for signed players and open tryouts for those wishing to take a shot at making the roster of the WSHL team or the new developmental Coyotes team.
Coyotes Training Camp & Open Tryouts will take place at the new home of the Casper Coyotes, the Casper Ice Arena. Monday through Friday players will spend two hours on the ice and an hour off off-ice training on Monday and Wednesday. Saturday, August 30th, there will be a Maroon VS. White game to wrap up the week.
The coaching staff got a little preview of what the 2014-2015 would have to offer at the July Senior Chowder Cup in Boston. Though missing a few of the high powered forwards, quite a few of this season’s players comprised the Coyotes team that went 1-1-1 at the recent showcase. The team had solid goaltending and strong defense and lost the bracket on account of two short handed goals. Coach was impressed with many of this season’s signed players. The boys all enjoyed the Boston experience. They were able to enjoy a Lobster dinner, Mike’s Cannoli’s and even went fishing in Kennebunkport. One of our Finnish player got to experience a taste of American culture and went swimming with teammates in a quaint river in Maine. The weekend focused on team building and having fun. In that sense, it was a resounding success!
