Locals Kaine Brannigan, Dylan Keefer and Isaac Little have been invited to the Haliburton County Huskies Blue versus White game scheduled for Sept. 11 in Minden as the club finalizes its roster for the Ontario Junior A Hockey season.

Head coach and general manager, Ryan Ramsay, said the three impressed during the team’s rookie camp in late August.

The Huskies are offering free admission for fans to watch the intrasquad match which is scheduled for noon at the S.G. Nesbitt Memorial Arena.

Another two Highland Storm alumni, Braeden Robinson and Colin Glecoff, will be affiliate players with the club, Ramsay said.

Robinson will play for North Kawartha Knights and Glecoff will lace up the skates for either North Kawartha Knights or a Central Ontario midget AAA squad.

The late August rookie camp featured 49 skaters, including 16 goalies.

Ticket prices and availability for the other home games, as well as remaining preseason away games, will be announced shortly.

The Huskies are home to the Aurora Tigers, Sept. 18 at 4:30 p.m., and the Collingwood Blues, Sept. 25 at 4:30 p.m.

The Huskies regular season home opener is on Oct. 2 versus Lindsay.

Season ticket holders can pick up their tickets at the arena on the dates of the BlueWhite game and the two exhibition games.
