Spring Camp, Wheeldon

Scroll down for the Smokies season in blog posts I put together today...

I talked to Smoke Eaters Coach and General Manager Jim Ingram about their spring camp on Mountain FM's Overtime tonight. The Smokies signed five players out of their spring camp last year and kept four of them for the whole season. Ingram says they take the camp very seriously as a tool for not only filling next season's roster, but also for starting relationships with players who could develop with the local KIJHL teams before making a jump to the BCHL.

As I told you earlier this week, Nelson advanced to the KIJHL semi-finals with a series win over Castlegar. The Leafs now face the two time defending champion Fernie Ghostriders. Fernie beat Nelson in the finals in 06-07 and knocked Beaver valley off in the semis last season. They are a veteran team who knows how to win come playoff time while Nelson is a speedy, skilled young team that tore up the league in the regular season. Game 1 is Saturday at 7pm in Nelson with the second game on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. Here's Simon Wheeldon on how the teams match up...
