Another SJHL hockey season is just around the corner with Flin Flon Bomber Main Camp hitting the Whitney Forum next week.
Mike Reagan the Head Coach and GM who guided his team to two straight league finals is looking very forward to the start of another season. He says the recruiting has gone very well and he feels they will be very competitive and better than a lot of people think.
The Bombers have some holes to fill after losing 13 players from last year's team including Rylee Zimmer and Troy Williams who ended up being the futures in the Eric Sinclair deal with Melville.
Reagan says they have a number of good prospects to watch in this year's camp including Vaughan Bamford out of BC. He is a 6 foot 2 defenseman who has good skills, competes hard and has a great shot. He chose Flin Flon over two teams in the BCHL.
Another prospect is Calbin Boots out of Alaska who is a 6 foot defenseman. Reagan describes him as versatile, a very good skater and should play in the Bombers top 4.
Flin Flon is also high on a couple of forwards from the Manitoba Midget AAA League including Dawson Mckenzie who suited up for the Winnipeg Thrashers. Mckenzie put up 54 points in 41 games including 20 goals and Reagan likes his play making ability and hockey iq.
Dylan Burton his linemate with the Thrashers is also very good offensively who put up 48 points in 37 games including 25 goals. Reagan says he is a great skater and very good offensively.
Main Camp will start Wednesday at 3PM with registration, before hitting the ice at 4. Intrasquad games will start Thursday at 10AM.
We will have the complete main camp schedule posted here next week and don't forget to pick up those Bomber season tickets at the office at the Flin Flon Community Hall. We are at around 360 and as soon as we hit 400 every fan will receive a Bomber T- Shirt.
