The 25-player roster is now set for the upcoming season
for the Coulee Region Chill.
The past four days at Green Island Ice Arena....
....were used as a big tryout .
Almost 200-players took to the ice for the opening
day of the team's Main Camp.
That number was trimmed down to 40 to enter today.
The Chill won't publicly reveal the final roster until
training camp...but head coach A.J.
Degenhardt likes the mix of veterans and newcomers
that will make up this year's team.
We've got a couple of good forwards that are returning
that were big scorers for us last year.
One of our goaltenders is returning and we've got
two defesemen returning.
So it's a good start to the team and I think we've
added some really good young players to the roster
this season and I think we're going to be an exciting
team to watch.
Very good draft picks and tenders.
A young squad this year but that's a good thing because
they are all going to be hungry this year.
It's good to know some of the guys.
Good to know who you are playing with and who is returning
- you get the vibe of the team and the city and all
