Tryout Camp

The Bismarck Bobcats are combining their forces within the Central Division for multi-team Pre-Draft Camps this spring throughout the Midwest looking for the next wave of Bobcat players!

Every year, the Bobcats use their Pre-Draft Camps to identify top prospects for the upcoming NAHL Draft. Just last year, the Bobcats used nearly half of their draft picks on players who they identified at their Detroit and Minnesota camps; last season the Bobcats drafted four players (out of nine total selections) on players identified at 2018 pre-draft camps while signing two others to tenders.

Over the years, Open Camp has produced some major impact players in the NAHL who went on to play NCAA Hockey and beyond, including Ethan Gauer (committed to Alaska-Anchorage) and Tim Piechowski, key members of this year’s 2019-2020 Bobcats. The list also includes Dominic Panetta (NAHL All-Rookie Forward, Ferris State), Evan Giesler (All-Central Division Center, Air Force), Aiden Gallacher (Michigan State), Solag Bakich (Notre Dame), Jared Pike (American International College), Ryan Massa (Nebraska-Omaha, Orlando Solar Bears), and many, many more!

This season, the Bobcats are combining with the Minot Minotauros, Minnesota Wilderness and Minnesota Magicians for their Hudson Camp in Hudson, Wisconsin, and the Minot Minotauros, St. Cloud Blizzard and Minnesota Wilderness for their Camp in Dyer, Indiana!

**The Augsberg, Minnesota camp has been moved to Hudson, Wisconsin due to COVID-19 regulations, while the Motor City camp has been moved to Dyer, Indiana**
