Fort St. John Huskies co-hosting ID camp in Edmonton

Following their second straight Senator’s Cup championship, the Fort St. John Huskies are looking to add players for a run at a three-peat, and are extending their search to regions outside of their usual pipelines. The Huskies, along with the Castlegar Rebels of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, and the Wheatland Kings (Strathmore) of the Heritage Junior Hockey League, are hosting an ID camp in Edmonton, May 10 to 12, at the Clareview Arena.

“We wanted to look at some different regions and see who’s out there, and give kids a chance to learn about our program,” said Huskies GM Jeremy Clothier.

The purpose of the camp is for the teams to get a look at kids who are either coming right out of midget or are looking for a new landing spot. Members of each of the teams will be coaching and running practices to identify which players would be the perfect fit for their respective teams.

In the past couple of years, the Huskies have mostly pulled in players from Calgary, Vancouver Island, and Kelowna, in addition to those who come from the Peace Region. However, the Huskies haven’t had a lot of success in recruiting from Edmonton.

“There are a lot of things that people don’t know about our team and our program and this camp will help with that,” Clothier said.

Clothier is expecting the team to have 15 returning players next year, and thinks the Huskies will have a solid core in addition to the new players brought in.

The Huskies are also having their AGM on May 21 at 7 p.m. in the Employment Connections building. Those interested in attending, or becoming a member of the FSJ Huskies Society, can contact the team at
