Chiefs Start Camp Next Week

More than 70 players will be in town next week as the Spokane Chiefs hold their Annual Fall Camp at the Spokane Arena.  Spokane  Chiefs hockey personnel will get their yearly opportunity to see roster players after a summer away, recently added players to their 50-player protected list and camp invitees looking to make an impact on the organization all on the ice at the same time.

"This week is a culmination of a lot of work by our scouting staff," Chiefs Director of Player Personnel Chris Moulton said. 

Three scrimmages per day will begin on Thursday, August 23rd and run through Saturday, August 25th.  Camp will conclude with the annual Red-White Scrimmage on Arena ice on Sunday, August 26th at 1:00 p.m.

"We have a lot of good players coming in and pushing the issue," Moulton said.

Nineteen of the 23 players from the 2012 post-season will return to Spokane for camp including the WHL's Western Conference Defenseman of the Year, Brenden Kichton.  The 20-year-old Kichton led all WHL defenseman in scoring last season with 74 points and has 40 goals and 155 points the past two seasons.

"I want to see the veteran players arrive in good shape, working hard and not taking anything for granted.  I would like to see healthy competition at camp from everyone and not have it to be cut and dried where we have two separate groups; veterans and a group of young players.  I like to see those young guys push for spots.  The indication of a successful camp is when our veterans are pushed."

Scrimmages will begin on Thursday at 10:30 a.m.  All ice sessions, including the Red-White Game, will be free and open to the public.  Fans are asked to enter the Spokane Arena through the Chiefs' office on the south east corner of the building.

"It's a great opportunity to see the growth of our players as the weekend goes along," Moulton said.

Ticket packages for the 2012-13 regular season are on sale now by calling the Chiefs ticket office at (509) 535-PUCK (7825).
