The Stampede will look to Wallace's experience this season with the Stampede to help other players adjust to the program and the junior level of play.

The Stampede are gearing up for training camp that is about a month away and are excited about getting things rolling for the 2016-2017 season in the NA3HL. "Guy's are calling and asking if we can get going earlier than the 29th which is a very positive sign. We have several players moving into the area for the season and it seems that they all want to be here today. I think it will be a great group of guy's this season and they will all be ready to go at the start of camp in August." stated assistant coach Kyle Althen.
