Hockey season is almost here.  A new year with high expectations for the Idaho Steelheads.

Coach Neil Graham is entering his third season as bench boss and says this year's team should be one of the fastest he's had on the ice.

Entering camp the Steelheads will have 8 returning players that already know the pace that coach Graham wants.

The team also has 4 returning defensemen in the lineup.  As far as who is going see the ice that will all play out through camp, and coach Graham says he is glad about what players he was able to grab in the offseason.

"It's been a long summer a lot of recruiting, videos and phone calls. To see everyone starting to trickle into town and to know that camp is a week away it's an exciting time for us and our organization.  

Obviously, we had a very good regular season last year with 43 wins and we expect this new group to come in where we left off.  We built ourselves to what we think will give us a longer deeper push in playoffs,” said, Head Coach Neil Graham.
