The Kelowna Rockets have broken their 2014 training camp and are set to kick off the Western Hockey League exhibition season with a pair of games this weekend.

The Rockets are still carrying 30 players after releasing seven players back to their respective minor hockey or junior teams Thursday.

With several Rockets set to attend NHL training camps, Kelowna will keep its current roster virtually intact though the six game exhibition schedule.

Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton was very happy with this year’s training camp.

“It’s been a great camp, we’re really happy with the young guys and our veterans have been excellent,” says Hamilton. “They are excited to get playing games.”

The Rockets will host Kamloops on Saturday at Prospera Place and also play in Vancouver on Sunday this weekend as part of the team’s six game exhibition schedule.

Drafted players Tyrell Goulbourne (Philadephia), Madison Bowey (Washington), Mitchell Wheaton (Detroit), Rourke Chartier (San Jose) and Justin Kirkland (Nashville) along with invited players Tyson Baillie (San Jose), Jackson Whistle (Vancouver) and Dalton Yorke (San Jose) will all be leaving the Rockets to attend NHL camps in September.

Also not expected back but eligible to return are Damon Severson (New Jersey) and Ryan Olsen (Winnipeg).

The Rockets open the WHL regular season on Sept. 20 against the Blazers at Prospera Place.
