(ABC 6 News)- The Austin Bruins hockey team opened up their main camp on Tuesday.
Thursday marked their second round of cuts for the team, and the team was cut down from 150 players to 80 players. By October, the Bruins must trim the roster to just 23 players.
“I’m looking for a bit of everything (this year),” Bruins Head Coach Steve Howard said. “We need some guys that will grind, we need some guys that can score, and we need some guys that, you know, play maybe a penalty kill situation for us, block shots. I want to have a little more toughness I think we were missing that (last year).”
The Bruins begin the regular season on September 28 at Riverside Arena in Austin. The Bruins will host the Bismarck Bobcats at 7:05p.m.
