The Flin Flon Bombers were two wins away from claiming the Canalta Cup last season, their first appearance in the finals in over 20 years.
With the graduating of 5 players, the team has a lot of optimism going into the 2016-17 campaign, which kicks off today when the team officially opens their camp.
“We are very excited about this year’s team,” commented Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan. “We have a lot of great pieces to build from last year with the guys gaining so much experience going that deep in the playoffs.”
Players have arrived in the Flin Flon starting with registration last night and the teams will skate this morning starting at 10:00 am with games going this afternoon starting at 3:00 pm.
Everything will all wrap up tomorrow night with the annual Instersquad Game before they open up their pre season schedule on Saturday in Nipawin taking on the Hawks.
