Several young, second year bantam level hockey players from southeast Saskatchewan will put their skills to the test in front of scouts for the first time this weekend, attending the Saskatchewan Hockey Association (SHA) regional camp. 

Among them are eight members of the TS&M Bantam Bruins, and one each from the Estevan Bantam Knights and Bantam Bears. 

"We...have a quality goaltender in Jackson Miller, we have four or five of our forwards...any of those kids could make it through. You just never know," stated Bruins Head Coach Blaine Chrest. 

From the Bantam Bruins, forwards Colby Cuddington, James Mann, Kaden Chrest, Mason Ficther and Mason Kukura will attend, accompanied by defensemen Alec Waldegger and Colby Durr, as well as goaltender Jackson Miller.

Meanwhile, Knights coach Lloyd Sehn is sending Bryson George, whom he regards as, "...one of my anchor defensemen. He's a big, strong kid. He brings a physical play to the game. He's a good skater, manages his ice very well, defends very well, he's tough to beat. He's also not afraid to jump into the offense."

Sehn expects George to be a consistent contributor and very coach-able, noting, "...if you're coming up against Bryson, you're going to have to work for every inch of ice you get."

Other camp attendees from the region include Bantam Bears defenseman Landon Kaban.
