Summer is coming to an end, and that means hockey season is just around the corner!
The Everett Silvertips have announced their schedule for training camp, which begins with players reporting on August 26. There will be a team practice before players are split into four different teams to scrimmage for the Volunteer Cup.
Before the annual Green vs Grey game will be a newly added Rookie Game that features prospects born in 1999 and 2000. Training camp is open to the public and will take place at the Xfinity Arena.
