Rangers prep for pre-draft camp

It’s been quite a two-week period for new Marquette Rangers head coach Kenny Miller.

What with accepting a new job, packing up and moving his family to a new town, all while at the same time trying to accumulate as much talent as possible for Marquette’s pre-draft camp May 16-18 at Northern Michigan’s Berry Events Center.

Miller, however, knows that this early camp has unique significance and it’s something he’s excited about.

“This is the type of situation where we might find that guy that no one else in our league is looking at,” Miller said. “This camp gives each player a chance to show the coaching staff their talents prior to the NAHL draft. We expect the talent level to be very good and have the ability to draft players out of this camp."

Rangers coaches, staff and scouts along with select personnel will evaluate the players through the three day camp. Six games with highlight the event, two on Friday evening and four on Saturday with an all-star game set for Sunday morning. Players who move on to the final camp in July will be notified after the all-star game on Sunday.
