There was ice in New Liskeard on a hot, humid weekend as Iroquois Falls Eskis of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League held an evaluation camp.
Under the watchful eyes of new head coach Corey Bricknell and his hockey entourage, a gathering of signed players and hopefuls went through the paces at New Liskeard Arena.
Among those who caught the eyes of observers who were there with the purpose of evaluating were 1996 birth-year veterans Josh Dejulio and Kezmin Madden and 1996 birth-year rookie Dan Davies.
A defenceman, Dejulio showed the steady poise that he flashed as an NOJHL rookie in 2014-2015 while the trademark work ethic that makes Madden a candidate for regular duty as a forward in 2015-2016 was evident.
As for the rookie goalie Davies, formerly of the Dundas Blues of the Niagara District Jr. C Hockey League, his skills and technique were impressive as was the physical conditioning aspect of his game.
