Tigers off TO NHL Camps
The NHL rookie camps get largely underway this weekend, and early next week.
The traverse City prospects tournament gets underway on Sunday. Triston King will play for the Dallas Stars prospects alongside notable WHL'ers such as Brandon's Scott Glennie, Kelowna's Jamie Benn, Lethbridge's Colton Sceviour, and Oil Kings Thomas Vincour. Theres an outside chance of Triston getting signed and ending up in the pro's. I'd say its highly likely he will be back.
Mark Isherwood will be off to Boston's Camp where he will participate in a rookie tournament in Kitchener Ontario. The leafs, Sens, and penguins prospects will also participate in that tourney. There is still a possibility of him not returning if he gets signed and impresses enough at camp.
Matt Konan Will be heading to Anaheim where their rookie camp starts Saturday, Sept. 5. The ducks will play a 3 game mini-series against the San Jose Sharks Prospects. Konan will be back this year.
THe L.A kings camp get underway with their first practice sessions on Sunday September 6th. The Kings will faceoff against the Phoenix Coyotes prospects for 2 games on the 9th, and 10th. Linden will be back this year.
Buffalo's prospects hit the Ice Tuesday, September 8 at 11:00 a.m. Tyler Ennis is still not signed, which is unusually strange. If he does sign a contract consider that 100% official he wont return, as the only way he comes back is if contract talks fail.
The New York Rangers will also play in the Travers City prospects tournament. The rangers first game is on Sunday. Seeing Kundratek in a tiger uniform is still a decent possibility.
I'm a little surprised to not hear Wacey Hamilton's name being invited anywhere. Those injuries last year might have been a big factor in not getting noticed.
I will probably scour the web the next couple week looking for any info on how these guys do at their respective camps, and will keep you posted unless the massive college homework loads get in the way, haha.
Also it has been pointed out that the tigers have cut a few more players but specifics haven't been given. The tigers play 2 exhibition games this week vs P.A, and Saskatoon.
