Players who attend the upcoming Soo Eagles spring tryout camp will not just be showcasing their skills for the North American Hockey League team.
Not only will Eagles coach-general manager Bruno Bragagnolo and head scout Tom Farnquist be evaluating players at the May 16-18 camp but coaches from the Lake Superior State University Lakers, Northern Michigan University Wildcats, Ferris State University Bulldogs and scouts from teams in the Midwest Jr. Hockey League, North American 3 Hockey League, Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League and the new Canadian International Hockey League will be in attendance at Big Bear Arena in the Michigan Soo.
“That’s the thing about a camp like this,” said Bragagnolo. “It’s not just a tryout for the Soo Eagles. There will coaches from Division 1 (National Collegiate Athletic Association) schools as well as scouts from other junior teams there. There is a lot of exposure for players who attend a camp like this.”
Of note, the upcoming Eagles camp is by invitation only and also serves as a prelude to the June 2 NAHL draft.
“All players who attend will have been specifically invited by Bruno or myself,” said Farnquist.
