MEDICINE HAT, AB — Medicine Hat Cubs general manager Dave Kowalchuk has a full pool of potential players to eye up this weekend.

The two-year GM is the man in charge of the Western Canada Junior Hockey Prospects Camp, which begins Friday afternoon and runs through Sunday at the Family Leisure Centre.

More than 100 prospects are signed up and will be divvied into five different teams. Along with several games and skills sessions, the players will also participate in numerous off-ice exercises, including a combine, team-building activities, and recruitment discussions.

CHAT Sports caught up with Kowalchuk to hear more about this weekend's camp, what players should expect, and how it can serve as a gateway for the Cubs to sign players for the upcoming season.
