Metro camp yields 'nice surprises'

The Metro Jets held their annual pre-CSHL Draft camp last weekend at Lakeland Arena and team brass came away impressed with the results.

Over the two-day camp, the players scrimmaged to show off their abilities to the staff.

New head coach Jeff Bond was not in attendance as he was in Pennsylvania helping select the U.S. National Women's Inline team that will compete in Europe this summer.

"We had over 30 players come to camp," Jets GM Butch Wolfe said. "That's not a bad number at all, considering there were NAHL camps taking place at the same time.

"There were players from out of state and others from out of the area. We had some nice surprises for the number of players we had. We now have a few more kids to add to our draft list for sure."

The annual CSHL Draft is Saturday, May 29, in Chicago.

At the draft, CSHL teams select players in reverse order of their finish during the regular season.
