Spartan Hockey Pro Camp Begins Monday

Annual camp will take place at Munn Ice Arena.

Aug. 16, 2018

EAST LANSING – The Michigan State hockey program’s annual Pro Camp will take place next week at Munn Ice Arena. The camp will run Monday, Aug. 20 — Friday, Aug. 24 with players skating from 10 a.m. — noon on Monday — Thursday, and then 9 — 11 a.m. on Friday. The camp is open and free to spectators.

The longtime camp, run by MSU director of hockey operations Brad Fast, goaltending coach Jason Muzzatti and former Spartan assistant Tom Newton, helps the players prepare for their upcoming training camps with their respective professional teams. MSU had players in the NHL, American Hockey League, East Coast Hockey League and in various European leagues last season. As in past years, several pros that did not play collegiately at MSU will also attend the camp.

Justin Abdelkader usually leads the list of Red Wings who participate in the camp, and next week is very busy for hockey fans as the Joe Kocur Foundation’s softball game will take place on Saturday the 25th, with Dylan Larkin’s Stars and Stripes Showdown to take place on Sunday the 26th.
