Bobcats Make Training Camp Invites
BISMARCK, ND – Having completed their Main Tryout Camp over the past weekend, the Bismarck Bobcats have invited 30 players to participate in Training Camp for the upcoming 2017-18 season.
Of the 30 players invited to Training Camp, 19 come from the Bobcats’ offseason protected list of returners, tender signees and draft picks, including 2016-17 Bobcat veterans Jared Resseguie, Cooper Haar, Luke Millen, Patrick O’Connor, Tanner Breidenbach, Noah Bormann, Tanner Vescio, Michael Mahan, Matej Murin, Grant Johnson, Alex Pollock and John Shively.
The other 11 players that will break Training Camp comprise players that came to the Bobcat staff’s attention between the start of Pre-Draft Camp and the close of Main Camp, but are not on the team’s protected list.
One such player that earned an invite is goalie Sawyer Schmidt, a former standout in net at Mandan High School.
“Growing up and coming over to watch Bobcats games, I always dreamed of what it would be like to play for the team,” said Schmidt, who played for St. Louis in the NA3HL in 2016-17.
Starting next week with Resseguie, the team’s returning co-captain, the Bobcats will introduce every player coming to Training Camp with the Know Your Bobcat video series.
Players will report to the capital on August 27 for Training Camp, which will begin the next morning with the Bobcats’ world-famous “Hell Week” training program.
Season tickets for the 2017-18 campaign are also now available for pre-order: fans can get more information or reserve their seats for all of next year now by calling 222-3300 or by texting TICKETS to 701-390-7422.
