Warriors to answer roster questions

BCHL team to make evaluations over the weekend

The Westside Warriors are getting close to locking down the team’s 2011-12 roster and should have a good idea of just who will make the team after this weekend’s BCHL exhibition games

The Warriors play Vernon and Salmon Arm this weekend and will get a good look at two of their top rivals as the BCHL pre-season continues.

The Warriors are carrying 27 players heading into the weekend and still has several decisions to make on the way to an opening day roster with 21 roster spots to go.

“We’ve only played the one exhibition game and we had all of our young guys playing,” said Ferster. “I think we’ll have a good indication after this weekend of who will make our team.”

Among the newcomers to the Warriors who has impressed at training camp is Penticton native Adam Plant, a defenceman who played at the Okanagan Hockey Academy last season.

There is also 11 veterans from last year’s Warriors club that have been impressive.

“I certainly like the way the vets have carried themselves,” said Ferster. “They’ve taken charge in practice and they’ve worked hard.”

Ferster says this weekend’s games against Salmon Arm and Vernon will feature more veteran-based teams as the rosters get closer to being set.
