Kelowna Rockets set for season opener; Tyson Baillie returns

Tyson Baillie is returning to Kelowna to rejoin his teammates for the opening of the WHL regular season this weekend. The Kelowna Rockets will face off against Kamloops Blazers.

After attending his first NHL training camp with the San Jose Sharks, Baillie went undrafted at this year's NHL Entry Draft. Tthe Fort Saskatchewan, AB native is even more motivated to improve his game.

"It was a great experience," said Baillie of the Sharks' camp. "You quickly learn how quick the pace gets and how much stronger the players are at the next level. Overall I thought I did a good job and I'm looking forward to the start of the season."

Baillie, who doesn't turn 19 until November, rejoined his team with a few days of practice before the Rockets home opener on Saturday.

Defenceman Dalton Yorke was also returned to the Rockets by San Jose Tuesday after being invited to camp while goalie Jackson Whistle is back in Kelowna after attending the Young Stars in Penticton with Vancouver.

Still at pro camps are Madison Bowey (Washington), Rourke Chartier (San Jose), Justin Kirkland (Nashville), Mitch Wheaton (Detroit) and Tyrell Goulbourne (Philadelphia).
