Red/White Intrasquad Game Set To Go!

Aug 29, 2012 - 07:27 PDT

To say that this past week of training camp has been a grind for the players and coaching staff would be an understatement. It was a lot of work to put on one of the largest camps in Giants history, and during the process we got see some fine young prospects as well as some of the strides the veterans have made.

Tonight, all the week's work culminates into one game. The cream of the crop of the last 7 days will line up against each other one final time for the annual Red vs White Intrasquad game, coached as usual by some of the Giants finest alumni (listed below). This will be the final opportunity for some players to make an impression before likely more releases are made prior to the first preseason game Friday vs Kelowna.

There have been no roster changes from the Grey and Black teams of yesterday, however Team Black now becomes Red and Team Grey now becomes White. In addition, because they will be wearing Giants jerseys, some of the numbers for the players have changed as well.

If you're planning to come down to the Ladner Leisure Centre tonight, keep in mind that puck drop is at 7pm and admission is by donation to the CKNW Orphan's Fund.
