With the Steinbach Pistons prospects now having wrapped up their two-day camp, the Pistons main camp gets underway this morning.

About 40 prospects were put through the paces Sunday and Monday at the T.G. Smith Centre. From that group, head coach Paul Dyck and his staff have selected 20 players that will play in an all-rookie game against the Winnipeg Blues tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the T.G. Smith Centre.

A handful of those players in attendance at the prospects camp have also been asked to stay on for the main camp this week.

The Pistons will close out the first week of their main camp with a home-and-home exhibition series this weekend against the Winkler Flyers, with the Pistons hosting the Flyers Friday night in Steinbach and the re-match Saturday night at Winkler.

In all, the Pistons, the reigning MJHL and ANAVET Cup champions will play five pre-season games. The Pistons will begin the defence of those two prestigious titles on Sept. 21 when they host the Wayseecappo Wolverines in their MJHL regular season opener.
