According to this article, there will be one more final tryout camp for the WJC team in December in Grand Forks, ND.



Other tidbits from the article:

- It would take a miracle for our goalies not to be Lee and Campbell. When speaking of the great goaltending he got, Blais only mentions those two.

- Blais also singles out Danny Kristo's performance and praises his conditioning over the summer.

- Blais mentions again that those players cut in the beginning are not eliminated from contention. He points out that for some conditioning and skating over the summer were reasons.

- Blais' goal of the camp was to come out with 15 roster locks. He said he's confident they got that. You'd have to think some of those locks are Lee, Campbell, Schroeder, Kristo, Carlson, Fowler, Morin, Palmieri, McRae, Stepan, Bourque, D'Amigo..that's 12. I wonder who the other 3 would be?

My guess would be Jenks, Warsofsky, and Saponari.
