Windsor - August 23, 2013 - Forty-seven (47) players will report to our 2013-14 training camp for physical evaluations and orientation Monday, August
26th. Nineteen are returnees. The other twenty-eight are drafted players and free agent hopefuls.
Players will be made available to all media Monday at 1pm. Media are invited to stop by the Governor's Room, on the lower
level of the WFCU Centre, down the hall from our main office to request players. Availability will be determined by when
players arrive. Availability will end at 2pm sharp, to allow for timely testing and orientation.
New this year, the teams will be named after distinguished Spitfire alumni.
Team Blue will be known this year, and for every training camp from now on, as Team Renaud, in honour of Our Captain
Forever, Mickey Renaud.
Teams Red and White will be named each year for a different former Spitfire that has made a significant impact on the world
of hockey in the previous season.
This year, Team Red will be Team Quenneville, while Team White will be Team Julien, in honour of Chicago Blackhawks
Head Coach Joel Quenneville and Boston Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien: former Spitfire captains who led their
respective clubs to a berth in the 2013 Stanley Cup final this past spring.
