Lumber Kings Back on Ice for Summer Evaluation Camp
For the first time since the club experienced a crushing quadruple overtime loss in game seven of their Central Canada Hockey League quarter-final playoff series, the Kings were back on the ice, but this time there were plenty of new faces. The club's summer evaluation camp was held on June 10 and 11 at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, one of the few arenas in the region that has ice during the summer months.
More than 45 players were in camp, including both returning and new players who were trying to leave a positive first impression with the club's coaching staff. Over the summer, the team will start to take shape with select players invited to training camp in August, before the 2022-23 season begins in September. The league's schedule is expected to be released in mid-July.
