Contrary to an August 23 [url=http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/LondonFreePress/Sports/2005/08/23/1184225-sun.html]report[/url] in the London Free Press, the Tampa Bay Lightning will not be inviting London Knights center Drew Larman to its Traverse City, Michigan prospects camp. Lightning Head Scout Jake Goertzen, who is compiling the roster for the camp and tournament, said the report was false. Goertzen did confirm, however, that newly signed University of Massachusetts-Amherst center John Toffey will be added to the camp roster. Goertzen also indicated that tryout forward and QMJHL scoring star Maxime Boisclair is a good candidate to earn a pro contract out of camp, citing his statistical success and work ethic, although he remains a "longshot" to play in the NHL.
