Training Camp opens up next Friday (August 23) and runs through to the evening of Tuesday, August 27, with the Cougars annual Black versus White Intrasquad Game.

The Training Camp rosters, which will be compiled of returning players, prospects, and free agent invites and will be grouped into four teams named after Cougars alumni: Bourke, Byfuglien, Chara, and Connolly.

It will be the first Training Camp for the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft class that includes first-round selections Keaton Dowhaniuk and Koehn Ziemmer, along with 18-year-old CHL Import Draft pick Filip Koffer.

“As a staff, we’re excited to get the season underway and help mould this young group that has a bright future ahead,” commented General Manager & Head Coach Mark Lamb.

The Cougars’ “Young Guns” game highlights the first day of Training Camp. Team Hamhuis faces off against Team Brewer at 6:00 pm. The two rosters consist of listed prospects and free agent invites aged 15 to 17-years-old.
