Wolves prospects arrive this weekend
Sudbury Wolves fans will get a glimpse of the Wolves’ future this weekend when 30 players will participate in the Wolves’ 2013 Prospect Camp. The camp will feature each of the 14 players drafted by the Pack in the OHL Priority Draft in April, along with a number of top prospects from last year’s draft and some invited players.
Kyle Capobianco headlines the new arrivals as the first-round selection of the Wolves, seventh overall. The Mississauga native is one of the most skilled offensive defencemen in his age group and will be looking to showcase his skills to Wolves’ management and coaching staff this weekend. Other notables attending include second-round selection Troy Timpano. The Pickering native was the first goaltender selected in this year’s draft.
Francesco Vilardi, Stefan Leblanc and Michael Muzyka are three of the top prospects from last year’s draft that will be returning to the Wolves Spring Camp. All three players were top performers on their respective Jr. A teams this past season. Local invites include: Jackson Gunner and DJ Hancock from the Nickel Capital Wolves and Denver Ghent from the Nickel City Major Midgets.
The teams will take to the ice May 4, starting at 3:30 p.m. for a skills and practice session. The prospects will participate in a scrimmage from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. The players will return to the ice on Sunday morning at 10 a.m. until noon. The camp is free of charge and is open to the public. Wolves’ fans are encouraged to attend and support the youngsters that will be doing their best to make the 2013-14 edition of the Sudbury Wolves in September.
