Devine said the organization will use the rookie tournament in Traverse City, Mich., and training camp to determine whether Logan Nelson (5th round in 2012) and Eric Locke (7th in 2013) will be offered entry-level contracts or if they will go back to play an overage season in junior.
The too-much/too-soon signings of Riley Boychuk and Shawn Szydlowski in September 2012 has, if nothing else, perhaps made them a little more cautious when it comes to relying on unproven kids out of junior.
“We maybe jumped the gun a little bit there and maybe learned a lesson,” Devine admitted. “But by the time we see them (Nelson and Locke) in Traverse City and camp, we’ll have a pretty good read on them.”
