SJHL’s Yorkton Terriers to hold 2020 Fall Training Camp this weekend

With the start of the 2020/21 Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League season still up in the air, the Yorkton Terriers will go ahead and hold their fall training camp this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Westland Arena in Yorkton.

To follow with the health and safety protocols surrounding COVID-19, the Terriers are only allowed to bring in just over 30 players into camp, which will split into three teams that’ll each play two games one day and 1 game the other two.

Terriers’ Head Coach/GM Mat Hehr says’ even though there is a limit of how many players they can bring, he’s still excited about the group.

“It’ll be all of our returning and signed guys that are coming up and then just a handful of our prospects and draft picks like our first round pick this year Carter Herman and 2nd round pick Dustin Renas as well so we’re we’re excited to see the younger guys and how they match up with the older guys and we’ll aslo have a couple other list guys that are still kind of vying for spots,  so we’ll definitely take a good long hard look and they’ll be lots ice for them.”

 

Hehr adds they are excited to get together and get back onto the ice, but after this weekend’s main camp, what they do next is still up in the balance.

“We’ll kinda playing it day by day we’re we’re trying to get documents together here to send to Sask Health and you know we’ve been going back and forth with them and and it sounds positive right now but as you know and we know with the virus that everything can change in a day so we’re just going to keep on playing it day by day and go from there.”

 

The Terriers’ sessions will run starting tonight (Fri) at 6PM with two sessions, then 2 more tomorrow afternoon (Sat) and it’ll wrap up with two more on Sunday morning starting at 10AM.

The camp will be closed to the public to follow the health guidelines, but fans can follow along to the Terriers on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to follow along with the camp all weekend.
