Draft Camp

Day 1 of Draft Camp took place Sunday at the Save On Foods Memorial Center for players selected by the Victoria Royals in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.

There was fitness testing along with an on ice session.  It was an educational and learning experience for the players and a chance to get a taste of what to expect next year coming in.

The group included both first round picks F Tyler Soy (8th overall), D Chaz Reddekopp (13th) and local netminder Markus Daly.
