A new season for the Ice Demons

The Kitimat Ice Demons are already on the ice in anticipation of the regular season of hockey.

It’s that time again as the Kitimat Ice Demons Senior Men’s AA hockey team starts preparing for the 2013-14 Central Interior Hockey League season.

The Ice Demons will be entering its twelfth season in the league and are again hoping to ice a strong team, with a large proportion of the existing core group of players expected to return.

Inter-squad games will be held on September 12 and 14.

The September 12 game is scheduled to start at 9:15 p.m. and the game on September 14 will face off at 7:30 p.m.

Fans are welcome at all practice and inter-squad games.  Coach Madsen reminds participants that the try-outs are full contact hockey.

“I’m looking forward from what I’ve heard ahead of the tryouts for there to be a lot of competition for forward line sports, but we may be challenged a little with our defensive line-up as a result of a couple of team retirements — including long-time defenseman, Dave Venman — but there’s always a surprise of two when the players show up to try out,” said Madsen. “And we’re not sure what additional talent might be available from contract and project workers in town, who will also be welcome at our tryouts and inter-squad games,” Madsen said.
