Cohos open inaugural MWJHL camp

The pursuit of hockey hardware by the bay begins in earnest again on Friday as the Traverse City Cohos kick off their inaugural open camp at Centre ICE Arena.

The first-year Cohos are expecting better than 30 players from around the area, state and Midwest, as head coach Scott Gardiner begins to sculpt the roster.

“We have some outstanding players already signed, but we’re still looking for quite a few as well,” Gardiner explained. “It’s exciting to finally get to the on-ice stuff, get the coaches and scouts together and have a look at the talent. There are still quite a few USHL and NAHL camps going on, so it’ll be an ongoing process, but these camps are indispensable in terms of finding the best players to send out there when the season opens.”

Players will check in on Friday afternoon before the opening session at Centre ICE from 7-9 p.m. The teams will face off again on Saturday from 8-10 a.m. and 3-5 p.m. Gardiner and staff will conduct player interviews following the afternoon session on Saturday.

“We hope to have a few more guys signed, and continue to expand our reach and continue the process beyond that,” Gardiner added.
