Devils Rookie Camp 2012
 
I will be traveling, so I wanted to create this thread and subscribe as it may be hard to get very good internet access in the near future.

Go Devils.

Good idea.

Highly doubt they'll open it to the public, but I hope they post the entire scrimmage online like they did last year.

BrodeursCups 07-13-2012 10:22 PM

Would love at least one scrimmage to be open...

I'm interested in seeing the FA invitees this year

Not really, FA invites go out for Rookie camp as well. Since we are so tight lipped not a lot has come out yet, but we have invited the following players:

Mike Ambrosia, F, Youngstown/USHL (next Princeton)
Jack Berger, F, Princeton/NCAA

I'm excited for the first look at Matteau and Severson, and another look at guys like Merrill, Burlon, and Gelinas.

I don't believe Merrill came to camp last year. This would be a first look for him as well.

Toss us a freakin bone, Devils.

Open this.

$5 to get in + $5 to a local charity = paid for security and tax writeoff to cover the expense :nod: lol

zharkenby 07-14-2012 10:52 AM

I would be thrilled if we invited Anton Slepyshev

The chances of Lou opening this to the public are slim to none. Last year I was interning in Newark and decided to try to stop by and watch from the outside. I wound up watching through the glass of the practice rink with Curtis Gedig's father :laugh: . Even he wasn't allowed in..

Stickied for even easier tracking

Looking forward to seeing Merrill at a team function, finally.

How do you know he is coming.

Bleedred 07-14-2012 03:10 PM

I think he said he was coming, but will decide afterwards if he wants to return to college for a year or sign with the team.

If he signs with the team will he be in the A for a year for sure?

I think his thought process coming into camp, especially because of all the **** that went down in Michigan last year, is "if they don't need me for the big club I'm going back to finish what I started".

Red Berenson is the kind of person that Merrill looks up to, and if whatever earned him the suspension was that bad, he'll want to make amends.

Does anyone know the date of the rookie camp?

I think it's the 16-20th. I remember Lou saying how Tedenby, Urbom and Jajo won't be participating because they had a long season and it's not worth coming back from Sweden for only 4-5 days of camp.

Probably unless we have depth players with players injured on D.

Well im pretty sure Yayo and Tedenby have graduated and dont go to the camp anymore

I doubt Henrique and Larsson go either lol

Larsson was in that group as well. From how Lou made it sound, they'd be at the camp had they not been playing/practicing during our deep run.

Is this his first one? For some reason I was under the impression that he came to the rookie camp right after he got drafted, but not since then because of NCAA rules.

Most likely, unless he really impresses in rookie or training camp. We don't have room on the NHL defence right now, and he could use the experience in the AHL to get used to the higher level of play and longer season.

It starts on Monday at 9 am, when it ends I'm not sure.

Merrill was at the prospect camp in 2010 but not last year because he was taking summer classes

Did they say he would decide after Rookie Camp? Or was it after Training Camp in September? I don't remember what that report/tweet had said it was. I do recall the part of coming to camp and then deciding, but I can't remember which camp it was.

They probably feel like they know enough of what those guys bring that there is no point in them coming all the over from Sweden (for Tedenby/Josefson/Larsson that is), and taking up ice time from someone they haven't seen much of yet. I don't think Henrique/Josefson/Larsson are in any danger of not having a roster spot, and besides, they can determine what the expectations are for those 3 and Tedenby in regular training camp in September. No real point in throwing them out there for this.
