Waiting is the Hardest Part

By: Ken Oda, minotauroshockey.com

Minot, ND – The fourth season of Minotauros hockey is less than a week away as players report for training camp on Monday.  However after getting knocked out of the playoffs last season in the longest game in NAHL history some players could not wait to get going.  Several Tauros are already in Minot skating at the Maysa; Kyle Kruenegel, Johnny Walker, Quinn Fuchs, have been joined by new Tauro Tim Athley in evening skates.  Returning forward Jake Howie plans to join the group tonight after arriving in Minot yesterday.

The players will not have much free time once camp gets started, as with seven preseason games this will be the busiest camp in the team’s history.  Three of the seven preseason games will be at the Maysa on the West Rink; season ticket holders get into pre-season games for free, get your season tickets now by clicking here or on the "tickets" tab above.  All Tauros practices will also be open to fans who wish to attend; the complete training camp schedule is below.
