The Calgary Canucks held their 2013 Spring Camp this past weekend, May 10, 11, and 12, at the Don Hartman Sportsplex.

In addition to the many players from the city of Calgary, several other Alberta communites were represented, including, Edmonton, Bow Valley, Banff, Sylvan Lake, Airdrie, Rocky Mountain House, Water Valley, Cochrane, Okotoks, Fox Creek and High River. Also attending the camp were players from Saskatchewan (Saskatoon and North Battleford), Cape Breton Nova Scotia, Kentville Nova Scotia, Little Judique Nova Scotia, Kelowna BC, Anaheim Calif.
The purpose of the camp was to identify future prospects not only for this upcoming season, but for the future.
“It went very well. We were very pleased with the attendance and the calibre of play during the entire weekend” said head coach and general manager Ryan Barrett.
” The players enjoyed the camp, and the set up, and for us as coaches it was a chance to evaluate for both this upcoming season and for the future”
” It served our purpose to identify some of the top young players that we are looking for”
The next steps will include the identification and evaluation of the top prospects and to invite them to fall camp which will commence in August.
