Day 2 Of Bomber Main Camp

 

Day 2 of Flin Flon Bomber Main Camp continues at the Whitney Forum with a combination of over 60 veterans and rookies all vying for spots for the up coming season.

 

Once again, Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan will have some difficult decisions to make as they have recruited a lot of top end talent.

 

They still have a number of key prospects at WHL camps and expect some of those players to trickle back starting next week. 

 

The Bombers are also excited about a number of veteran players who are back including Caleb Franklin, Reid Robertson, Donavan Houle, Mason Martin, Ryder Richmond and Jacob Delorme.

 

We caught up to the Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan  and he talks about how the team is shaping up for the up coming season which starts for real in just two weeks.

Catching Up With Former SJHL'er Dale Butland

Shoot To Score Hockey School continues this week at the Whitney Forum. The legendary Reggie Leach has done an excellent job with the youngsters in Northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, teaching the skills of the game.

 

One of the instructors that Leach has recruited is former Selkirk Steeler and Nipawin Hawk, Dale Butland.

 

Butland was one time property of the Flin Flon Bombers and remembers his time in the SJHL very fondly,  including many division battles with the Maroon and White in the early 2000's.

 

I had a chance to sit down with Dale yesterday and we discussed his connections to Flin Flon and we talked about his career in junior and as a professional. You can hear that interview right here: https://soundcloud.com/102-9-cfar-podcasts/rob-hart-interview-with-dale-butland
