Terrace River Kings veterans and new team hopefuls, are in the midst of tryouts for the 2012/13 season. This year the Kings play every team in the league here at least once, including some teams never before seen in Terrace. Returning coach Roger Tooms, along with assistant coaches Rob Findlay and Lenny Davis, who is new to the team this year, are hosting the one intersquad tryout game tonight at 9 p.m. and the final tryout game on Thursday at 9 p.m., both at the Sportsplex, before finalizing the line-up early next week. Tooms says he likes to keep his squad lean, so will probably only go for four lines with a couple of extra players. As for what he looks for in a player? “Heart, respectful play, that’s a big factor for me. And obviously they have to know how to play the game,” he said during tryouts last Tuesday. The season begins with teams from Rupert, Kitimat and Smithers visiting Terrace for the CIHL Challenge Cup on Sept. 28 and 29, the first time in years the Cup has been held here.
