The Helena Bighorns kickoff their inaugural season in the NA3HL this week at the Helena Ice Arena, starting with Main Tryout Camp from Friday through Sunday. On a list of close to 40 attendees are returning Veterans Matt Mohar, Rory Bock, Brandt Miller and Brian Skillicorn.
Friday night will be a skills, drills and evaluation session of the campers by the Bighorns coaching staff.
Saturday morning kicks off the scrimmage schedule, starting at 10 am. The next scrimmage session starts at 5 pm. These scrimmages are open to the public.
Sunday holds the final evaluation in the form of one last inter-squad scrimmage. Final cuts and interviews will be held shortly after.
After the new Bighorns team takes a much needed and well deserved Labor Day Monday off, Training Camp goes to full throttle on Tuesday, Sept 2 with 2-a-days, off-ice conditioning, etc. all the way through Thursday September 11.
Closing out Training Camp will be a pair of games vs. their 2013-’14 Championship Series rival Great Falls Americans, with an away game in Great Falls on Friday the 12th at 7:05pm and back at home on Saturday, September 13th at the Helena Ice Arena, a 7:05pm start time for that game.
The inaugural season officially begins just 6 days later with the Helena Bighorns facing off against a relocated, revamped and hungry Glacier Nationals team, now based in Havre, MT. Puck drops at 7:05pm with Happy Hour in the Upstairs Bar beginning at 6pm.
