What do you got? That was what nearly 100 players were trying to show the organization at this year's Winkler Flyers Spring Camp held this past weekend at the Winkler Recreation Complex.

"Probably 20 some of those are draft eligible kids that would eligible for this year's draft," explained Flyers head coach and general manager Ken Pearson. "The rest of these kids are on our protected list or are free agents. We are happy with how things have gone."

With limited spots open on next year's club roster these players had to make a lasting impression on the organizations scouting, administrating, and coaching staff in hopes of getting invited to fall camp, for a chance to make the big club.

"We told them in the meetings before we started was; we want to see guys competing here, we want to see guys who aren't just going to go through the motions," said Pearson. "Do something that you are going to get noticed by the guys we are having evaluating. Be it a big hit, score a nice goal, or getting a puck out. Try and do something to get yourself noticed here."

This was the players opportunity to show this hockey club that they are good enough to make its squad come the fall.

"Don't just come and go through the motions cause you're wasting our time, their time, and the parents who brought you here, you're wasting their time if you just coming here to be a number. For the most part it's been really good. I think guys have come here and the guys we expected to score have scored. The defence have been a little bit of surprise in a good way. We got some good puck moving guys back there."

With the Flyers losing Regan Stire, Sean Collins, Michael Sofillas, Travis Marit, Joel Allarie, and Mitch Maraschiello to aging out of the system. This weekend was a great way to see which players could come in and help fill some key spots on the team this coming season.

"We really like our group of 97's that we have coming up. It's our first actual drafted group that we've had with Craig and myself, we joined the club three years ago. We are excited as all of those guys have come in here and played pretty much as we expected. Those guys are going to fill out our depth which we haven't had a great deal of last year or so. We've got real good depth overall with our 97-98 group. There's a couple of 95's that have played some high school in Winnipeg and in the states, that have been very good for us through the first couple of skates also."

Monday night, residents of the Pembina Valley filled Morden's Super 8 to have their questions or concerns answered by Enbridge's staff about the proposed Line 3 replacement project.

"We have what we call a coffee talk, which is a type of open house," explained spokesperson Graham White. "We just invite members of the community to come by and gather information or talk to a number of our experts about the Line 3 replacement project we are proposing for the next couple of years."coffeetalks april142014 1

"Line 3 is a very important part of the main line," said White. "It's five or six lines, depending where you are geographically. From Hardisty Alberta to Superior and in the United States. A very important portion of it runs through from Cromer in Manitoba to about Gretna. That will be part of the replacement. If we go ahead with this in terms of it`s proposal, we haven`t applied for regulatory yet, but we anticipate being able to replace that segment of the line between Cromer and Gretna in 2017. Hopefully over that summer."

According to White a total of 1,680km will be replaced, with 300 of those being in Manitoba.
