Prospect Camp

2014 Development Camp - Day 4

I finally had the chance to make it out to the Ice Sports Forum to catch up with some of the attendees and observe a good chunk of the 3v3 action. Following are some brief impressions and takeaways from my time at the rink:

Rookie Tournament Cancelled

NHL.com is reporting the Florida Panthers organization has cancelled their annual prospects tournament due to uncertainty over the collective bargaining agreement. The Lightning's future stars were set to participate in the tournament along with Carolina and Boston's prospects. Last week the Detroit Red Wings similarly cancelled their annual prospect tournament held in Traverse City.
