The La Ronge Ice Wolves closed out their training camp on Sunday afternoon with the annual intrasquad game.
When the dust settled, Team Teal defeated Team Navy 7-1. Veteran forward Samson Mouland led the way with two goals for Team Teal, while newcomer Daylon Mannon had the lone goal for Team Navy.
“I think everything went very, very well,” said Ice Wolves Head Coach and GM Kevin Kaminski. “We have a lot of tough decisions to make and that’s a good thing. These kids have come in here and competed. Some are going to earn jobs and some are going to lose jobs, but that’s what we want, we want to have that competitive atmosphere.”
Kaminski says several players stood out at camp.
“I thought Aaron Greyeyes and Nakoda Thunder Chief had really good camps,” said Kaminski. “I thought Daylon Mannon had a really good camp. It was good, but there’s way more than that.”
Kaminski also said they will carry about 32 players on their pre-season roster. The pre-season for the Ice Wolves starts Sept. 5 in Saskatoon versus the Kindersley Klippers.
The Ice Wolves open the campaign for real Sept. 13 in Flin Flon versus the Bombers at the Whitney Forum.
