Windsor - September 5, 2013 - The Windsor Spitfires will kick off the 2013-14 OHL season on Thursday September 19th at the WFCU Centre when DJ Smith brings his Oshawa Generals to town. The Spitfires held training camp during the last week of August, and are currently playing exhibition games. After a long summer, the players are excited to get going, and were happy to talk with me about the upcoming season.

I asked the guys the same questions, and here are some of their replies.

TC: How did you spend your summer?

PAT SIELOFF: A lot of it was spent re-habbing my injury. I had to make sure that when I came back I wouldn’t have any problems with my hips or groin. Maintenance work was huge. We had five months of summer, so I managed my time wisely. I built up muscle mass and body weight, and I feel good.

BRADY VAIL: I spent it working hard. I stayed here for most of the summer, but I also got to spend a little time with my family back home. Overall, it was a lot of training, and a lot skating, actually a lot more than usual.

KERBY RYCHEL: It was good. A lot of training, and I was on the ice a lot.

RYAN MOORE: A lot of training. I’ve been back and forth a lot, between home and Windsor, training with a couple of good friends. I also spent a lot of time with my family.

JORDAN DEKORT: After the season, I stayed here to finish my school year. Then I went to the Montreal Canadiens development camp. It went really well. Then I was with my goalie coach in Toronto, and did a lot of working out.

JOHN BOWEN: I was in the gym every day. I also spent time on the boat and getting together with my friends.

RYAN VERBEEK: I went home halfway through the summer. For the first half I was here working out with the guys, and I spent the other half at home, working out every day. I also went to the cottage, and had a lot of fun. It was a good summer.

JOSH HO-SANG: I spent my summer training, five days a week. I was only on the ice a couple of times. It was more of an off-ice summer, building strength.

CHRIS MARCHESE: At first I was recovering from the concussion, it took a little while, but once I started feeling good I was in the gym and on the ice. I had a disappointing season with the injury and I feel I didn’t play up to my expectations, so I feel that I have a lot to prove this season. I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, so I’m excited to get going.

TY BILCKE: I was home for about two months, doing some construction work, and I was doing my workouts and skating, and on June 1st I moved back to Windsor and started working out with the guys again. I had a good program with Joey (Garland).

NEXT COLUMN: Have you set any personal goals for this season?

TC out.
