The Victoria Royals are on the ice ahead of the 2013-14 Western Hockey League season.

Draft camp opened earlier this week with the Royals’ 11th pick in the 2013 WHL pick, Dante Hannoun, among the many hopefuls on the ice.

Rookie camp begins Thursday with games at 10:15 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. and continues on Friday with games at 10:15 a.m. and 5:15 p.m., Saturday games at 10:15 and 5:15 p.m. The rookie camp tournament ends with a first versus second place final on Sunday at 11 a.m.

Bypassing rookie camp is a foursome of 16-year-old rookies, Tyler Soy, Chaz Reddekop, Regan Nagy and Matthew Campese. Assuming all four can find a place in this year’s roster, the Royals will have a particularly young but talented squad this year.

Main camp starts on Monday.
