Daily Dose of the Dub: Giants sign Camazzola, Raiders announce return of coaching staff and more

Giants sign 03-born Camazzola 

The Vancouver Giants have signed 2003-born defenseman Nicco Camazzola to a WHL Player Agreement. The Giants selected Camazzola from the CSSHL’s Burnaby Winter Club with their fourth-round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft. In his bantam season, he registered two goals and eight assists in 30 games with 54 penalty minutes. Last year, the six-foot-one, 187-pound defenseman made the switch to the BCMML where he played for the Vancouver North East Chiefs. He suited up for 40 games with the Chiefs garnering five assists and leading the team with 78 penalty minutes. He is the fourth member of the Giants 2018 draft class to sign with the team.


Raiders announce full coaching staff return 

The Prince Albert Raiders have announced that Marc Habscheid (148 GP, 107 G, 169 A with the Saskatoon Blades and Kamloops Junior Oilers), Jeff Truitt, and Dan Gendur (200 GP, 55 G, 89 A with the Prince George Cougars and Everett Silvertips) will all be returning to the Raiders bench next season. This marks the first time since the 2012 Edmonton Oil Kings that the WHL Champion has seen their head coach return the following season.

The Raiders have also brought Kelly Guard (115 Gp with the Kelowna Rockets) back into the organization, to replace the departing Mike Brodeur who is joining the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. Guard served as a goaltending and assistant coach with the Raiders from 2012-16 and then again in 2017-18 after a one year stint with the SJHL’s Kindersley Klippers.
