Hockey camps back at Chilton

The North Island Eagles fun hockey camp gets under way this week, through Friday.

The ice is back in at Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill, and the next several weeks will be devoted to a series of hockey camps as well as figure skating.

The North Island Eagles fun hockey camp is under way this week, through Friday.

The following week, Lou Lemire’s Summer Hockey Skills Clinic returns to the arena for a July 8-12 run.

Finally, on July 22, Port McNeill-raised pro skaters Clayton Stoner and Benn Olson return with Clayton Stoner’s Summer Hockey Camp. Stoner, a defenseman with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild, headlines the camp, presented by Victoria-based Progressive Hockey, with help from Olson, who skates in the New York Islanders’ organization.

A few spots have been released since the initial July 1 registration deadline, said Andy Seppanen of Progressive Hockey, but prompt sign-up is requested by interested skaters.

The camp features plenty of on- and off-ice elements and wraps up with a scrimmage complete with player introductions to music and spotlights. Afterward, players can mingle with the camp instructors and collect autographs at the post-camp party.
