AUSTIN, Minn. – Originally scheduled for Minneapolis, MN, and Detroit, MI, the Austin Bruins have announced the relocation of their two predraft camps to nearby Hudson, WI, and Toledo, OH, respectively. Players who have already signed up will receive an email with further details on their specific camp and a list of FAQ’s to help parents better plan with the change of venues.
Due to restrictions set forth by the states of Minnesota and Michigan in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bruins and the other partner NAHL teams have relocated the predraft camps to cities nearby the original sites. These new locations limit the interruption to campers’ travel while also allowing for a traditional on-ice experience.
