After falling to the New York Aviators in round one of last season’s Federal Hockey League playoffs by a single goal in a game five overtime situation, Whalers hockey has returned to the ice at the Danbury Ice Arena for the second annual free agent tryout camp.
The two day camp held Friday and Saturday was a chance for players with different skill levels and experience take to the ice and show what they are made of in hopes of getting a call back to the Whalers training camp.
