The Western Kings will be looking to build a championship contender when training camp for the 2014 season opens this weekend at the Pepsi Centre.
The Kings, under new governor Paul Woolfrey and general manager Kevin McCarthy, will have coach Angus Head back in the fold to guide this year’s edition in the provincial major midget hockey league.
The Kings won the provincial crown two years ago dethroning the mighty St. John’s Privateers in the final.
Things didn’t go as well last season, as the Kings bowed in the best-of-seven final in five games against a talented Central Ice Pak squad.
The Kings defeated the St. John’s Maple Leafs in four-straight games in the semifinal round to earn a showdown with the central Newfoundland squad.
Prospects for this year’s team will be on the ice Friday 8 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre for the first on-ice session. On-ice sessions are also scheduled for Saturday 4-6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
