NHL players make impact in area


Drag racers weren’t the only pros making an impact on the lakes area economy this weekend.

Players representing about 15 NHL teams were in the area participating in Minnesota Hockey Camp’s pro-am camp at the MHC facility on Clark Lake Road in Nisswa and Brainerd Area Civic Center.

The week-long camp is for contracted pros to condition and get ready for NHL training camps, players trying to get evaluated in an attempt to get an NHL tryout and college-bound players.
