Another Dauphin Kings campaign is officially complete, as the organization wrapped up their Spring Camp & Combine today.
"The Camp went fantastic in my opinion," said Scott McCallum, Director of Hockey Operations. "We met with the kids and asked them to compete, and that's definitely what we saw on the ice."
The Kings are coming off a tough season, where they went 14-44-1-1, but Scott and the rest of the organization are optimistic things will be changing, based on the talent at the Camp, and on their protected list.
"Our scout, Mitch Kirkup has done a great job with our list here in Dauphin," said McCallum. "There are definitely some guys here that are capable of stepping in and playing Jr. hockey."
With that being said, Scott knows there is definitely some work to be done.
"We have some holes to fill for sure," said McCallum. "There will be some opportunity for some young guys to step in, but we're definitely going to bring in some players that will help right away."
With the Camp & Combine now a thing of the past, the Kings will continue their search for the organization's new Head Coach and General Manager.
"It's something we're taking really seriously, and we want to do it right," said McCallum. "We're not rushing it. We've been doing interviews for the last few weeks, so we're going to sit down and do a true assessment of where we're at, and what's next for us."
Scott also noted he's excited there's a positive buzz around the rink.
"The young players we have are going to be a year older next season," said McCallum. "And, with help of some veterans being added to the club, we're going to be very competitive next season."
Nearly 90 players suited up to take part in the Camp & Combine.
