Hall of Famer Bryan Trottier is one former hockey player who doesn’t need a celebrity golf tournament to lure him to Lake Tahoe.

Trottier will return to the South Shore for the third straight summer to direct and instruct participants in Hockey Lake Tahoe 2004.

The camp features two weeks of hockey instruction and training for boys and girls ages 7-17. A clinic for beginners and intermediate players runs from July 7-10 and one for intermediate and advanced players runs July 12-17. Both camps are also designed for goaltenders.

Each day will consist of at least three hours of on-ice instruction. On-ice instruction will consist of power skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, positional play and team play. To improve skills, the most current hockey drills and scrimmages will be employed.

The cost of the former camp is $395 per player, while the latter one costs $595.

Like last year, Trottier, a seven-time Stanley Cup winner, will be joined by his son, Bryan Jr., and Hershey Bears coach Paul Fixter.

Mark Heidt, Hockey Lake Tahoe program director, can’t say enough what it means to have a legend like Trottier continue to direct the clinic.

“We want to give locals the opportunity to take their game to the next level and an opportunity to learn from one of the best to play the game isn’t too bad either,” Heidt said.
