Storm return to Sleeman Centre: a training camp primer

By Tony Saxon, Guelph Today

The Guelph Storm begins a season of great expectation Tuesday when 48 players report to training camp.

The team returns 17 players off last year’s squad and is expected to contend for a Western Conference title.

Following fitness testing and meetings the team will hold its first on-ice session at 6 p.m.

First exhibition games are this weekend, both at home: Saturday versus Peterborough at 7 p.m. and Monday against Mississauga at 2 p.m.

First regular season game is Sept. 21 in Windsor.

Here’s a training camp primer:

THE DEPARTED: Overagers Garrett McFadden, James MacEwan and Mark Shoemaker are the only three players not returning.

Assistant coach Luca Caputi left to become an associate coach with the Kingston Frontenacs.

THE NEWBEES: First round pick Daniil Chayka, second rounder Zack Terry and third rounder Ty Collins have all signed with the team and coach/gm George Burnett expects all three to make it.
