There’s still time to register for Soo Thunderbirds Development Camp!

The Soo Thunderbirds have announced on Tuesday that they will now be holding their 2023 Development Camp from June 16 – 17 at the brand new Northern Community Centre in the west end of Sault Ste. Marie.

This year’s camp is open to players born in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and in 2008.

All players wishing to register must contact Soo Thunderbirds general manager Jamie Henderson by emailing him at


The T-Birds were originally supposed to hold their Development Camp this weekend from May 5 – 7 at the Northern Community Centre, but have now pushed their dates to June 16 – 17, due to the Soo Greyhounds using the ice this weekend for their development camp.


Right now, there are currently two former Soo Thunderbirds participating in this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, including Colin Miller (Dallas Stars) and Jake Muzzin (Toronto Maple Leafs).

Miller, who is currently in his eighth NHL season, spent one season with the Soo Thunderbirds back in 2009-2010, where he notched 7 goals and 23 assists in 46 games.

Muzzin, who is currently in his eleventh full NHL season, played in 4 games with the Soo Thunderbirds back in 2006-2007, where he recorded 0 goals and 3 assists.
