Eight ICE attending NHL camps

Eight members of the Kootenay ICE will be participating in National Hockey League’s (NHL) training camps when they open in a few weeks.

Jeff Chynoweth, ICE General Manager announced August 26 that eight players from his Western Hockey League club will be attending NHL training camps, including 2014 second overall selection Sam Reinhart, who will attend Buffalo Sabres camp.

Fellow forwards Jaedon Descheneau (St. Louis Blues) and Tim Bozon (Montreal Canadiens), defensemen Rinat Valiev (Toronto Maple Leafs) and Tanner Faith (Minnesota Wild), along with goaltender Mackenzie Skapski (New York Rangers) will all participate in their respective NHL camps as drafted players. Bozon’s appearance at the Habs’ training camp is nothing short of a miracle after recovering from a near-fatal bout of Neisseria meningitis in March last season.

In addition, forwards Luke Philp (Toronto Maple Leafs) and Jon Martin (Vancouver Canucks) have also been invited to attend NHL camps next month.

“Our organization is extremely proud to see eight roster players attend NHL camps this September,” said Chynoweth. “The opportunity to participate in a training camp at the NHL level will be a rewarding and learning experience for each of them, and we’re hopeful that experience will carry over into the upcoming season.”

Kootenay ICE Training Camp begins tomorrow – Wednesday, August 27 at Western Financial Place, running through Sunday, August 31 with the annual United Way Black / White Intrasquad Game beginning at 12 p.m.
