HOLTY’S BLOG: Cowboy and training camp

This is the last off-season blog of 2015. I repeat. The last off-season blog of 2015. This time next week, training camp will practically be half over.

If there has been any change in my thinking over the course of my 4+ seasons out here is that the offseason isn’t so bad.

However, even though it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want… I cannot make time stop.

Now for the one sentence per item blog…

  • Congrats to Nick Pageau on being the first player to arrive in Condorstown.

  • The Kings trounced the Coyotes Monday night at Rabobank Arena and the new glass and lighting looked phenomenal.



  • Training camp schedule coming tomorrow with an open-to-the-public practice on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10 a.m.


  • Open House (two days) is next Tuesday (9/29) and Wednesday (9/30) from 3-7 p.m. where fans can meet the team, pick up tickets, and tour the locker room.


  • The first specialty jersey of the 2015-16 (there will be three) will be a Marines-inspired jersey commemorating the 240th Anniversary of the USMC founding.


  • Roster for training camp will come out on Monday, once we figure out who will actually be here on Monday morning.


  • Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan hinted at this today by saying that all healthy bodies will make the Oilers road trip this weekend with the big cut down on Sunday.


  • Speaking of Monday, Gerry Fleming will be on FOX 58 at 7:45 a.m. Monday morning to kick off training camp.

Until next time Condorstown…
