1998 G Colby Entz (Churchbridge SK)
1998 F Damian Bentz (Punnichy SK)
1998 F Dayton Heino (Minnedosa SK)
1998 F Shane Sherban (Lanigan SK)
1998 D Eric Soar (Moose Jaw SK)
1999 D Daniel Liberty (Edmonton AB)
1998 F Cory Schillo (Kasson MN USA)

The Mils have some higher end pieces to work with in Entz as a goalie, Soar on defense, and Bentz up front. The trade addition of Ryan Heino should bolster the ranks up front as well. Head coach Devin Windle will be looking for the team to take another step forward after last year’s impressive finish and gutsy playoff effort in the Survivor Series. Getting Logan Foster back from Swift Current WHL would be a shot in the arm.
