We’re about three months out from the college hockey season returning, but that doesn’t mean the standouts of Hockey East, Atlantic Hockey and the ECAC are taking much down time.
Rather, they’re beginning NHL Development Camps, an annual summer exercise that’s a valuable experience for draft picks and free agents alike. It allows players to see how a NHL organization is run, showcase their talents before general managers and scouts, and edge closer to their professional dream.
So, who’s embarking on this journey? To help sort through the deluge of roster announcements, New England Hockey Journal has assembled every player with a local tie, as organized by NHL team. Those included are either from New England or play at a college in the region.
Draft picks are noted with an asterisk, recently-graduated pros have a #, and those without any mark are in camp on an invite basis.
In all, more than 120 players with ties to New England will partake in NHL Development Camps.
