Prospects got their first chance to skate in front of Midget AAA coaches this weekend.
The Fort Saskatchewan Midget AAA Rangers had over 40 players looking to make an impression at spring camp before the offseason starts.
"It was a good weekend, we put the kids through a practice on Friday and a couple games after that, but it was really good hockey to watch," said head coach Ty Valin."The pace impressed me, I wasn't expecting it to be at the rate that it was. Things were clicking well and guys were transitioning well out there."
Valin announced he'll be returning behind the bench for another season. He'll also have the tough task of restocking the roster.
"We want to get faster and stronger. We don't want to get pushed around when it comes to games late in the year," added Valin.
The Rangers are graduating six players from last season, but with the young talent on the roster, some potential returnees may be making the jump to the junior ranks.
Main camp will take place in September.
