Also, congratulations are in order for T-Birds goalie Calvin Pickard, who spend his summer vacation helping Team Canada win the gold medal at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial U-18 Tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. He helped Canada go undefeated throughout the tournament. Here's a link to the recap:
I'm starting to get excited about the new season. The T-Birds open training camp this coming weekend. I'm sure the Silvertips are ready to get on the ice too! I hope both teams will open some of their training camp to the public-- or at least let me in to watch for a bit, so I can write about it at the KING 5 hockey page, or here at Daily Su.
