The Bismarck Bobcats are holding Open 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 Dominic Panetta (NAHL All-Rookie Forward, Ferris State), Nick Miglio (Utica, Colorado Eagles ECHL), Filip Starzynski (Northern Michigan), Evan Giesler (All-Central Division Center, Air Force), Cole Souto (2016 Top Prospects Defenseman, St. John’s), Jared Resseguie (2017 Top Prospects Center, Denver University) and many, many more!
The major difference at the Bobcats’ Open Pre-Draft Camps is that you will play against the Bobcats’ returning veterans, so you will be able to test yourself against players with one or more seasons of NAHL experience and see where you might fit in with next year’s team!
