Tryouts for the Campbell River Storm are taking place at the Rod Brind’Amour this weekend.
Players from Vancouver Island and across North America are attending the Junior B team’s scrimmage games, according to head coach and general manager Lee Stone.
“We’ve got two from Wisconsin, one from Michigan, we’ve got Saskatchewan, a couple Albertans,” Stone said.
“We’re bringing in all our side players, all of our recruits, anyone that wants to try out for the team.”
Eighty players ages 15-20 turned out for the scrimmage games, which started on Friday and continue through Sunday.
Coaches from Junior A and college-level hockey along with locals were evaluating the players, Stone said.
A roster will be released ahead of exhibition games that start on Aug. 26.
