Tryout Camp

The Bismarck Bobcats combining their forces within the Central Division for their first-ever 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 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!

This season, the Bobcats are combining with the Minot Minotauros, Minnesota Wilderness and Minnesota Magicians for their Minnkota Camp in Blaine, Minn., and the Minot Minotauros and Brookings Blizzard for their Motor City Camp in Trenton, Mich.!
