Rider hopefuls practiced passing drills at the try outs.

Future hockey stars came from all across the province to try out for their chance to become a Ghostrider at the weekend.

The Ghostriders training camp was a chance for 55 young players to show off their skills to coaches and try out for the Junior B team.

“Camp was great as we had lots of players and the boys got quite a bit of ice,” said head coach Will Verner. “Some young players that stood out included Ben Betker, Patrick Webb, Matthew Carr and local Fernie player Dane Carlson.

“Sawyer Ward participated in his first Junior camp and was the youngest player at camp.  Some out of town players that looked good included Alex Pronchuk and Cole Miller. Colby Livingstone was very strong all weekend and for a 15-year-old looked like a player that could be a strong affiliate for our club next season.”
