BROOKS, ALTA. -- The reigning national Canadian Junior Hockey League champion Brooks Bandits, a title that comes in-part to a cancelled post-season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, have been back on the ice for a few months.
They're taking no chance to be on the ice for granted.
“The fact that we’re able to come and practice every day and play games on the weekend is huge for these guys development,” said Bandits assistant coach Taylor Makin.
The players arrived for camp Labour Day weekend. Over the past few weeks, the Alberta Junior Hockey League has allowed them to play exhibition games. The Bandits have played four games against the Okotoks Oilers, winning all four.
The AJHL is calling the 2020-21 campaign a development season but it seems no Bandit player is more zoned in on developing his game than defenseman Corson Ceulemans.
