Beaver Valley Nitehawks goalie Drake Poirier is poised for a new season as the Hawks held their main camp at the Cominco Arena on the weekend.

Beaver Valley Nitehawks open exhibition season Monday

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks held their main camp on the weekend and will hit the ice Monday against Spokane to open its exhibition season.

  • Aug. 30, 2015 11:00 a.m.

About 40 skaters attended three days of workouts and scrimmages at the Cominco Arena over the weekend in an effort to crack the Beaver Valley Nitehawks lineup.

The Hawks will trim their roster to about 30 players before heading into a prolonged and intensive exhibition schedule. The Hawks have as many as 14 returning players from last year’s roster, so available spots will be at a premium.

The Nitehawks open with a game at 7 p.m. in B.V. on Monday against the Spokane Braves, playing eight games in nine days to prepare for the Sept. 11 season start against Spokane.
