guess it's a bit of both. Not sure if Vellieux's still injured but he's been to quite a few camps when he's been healthy. Strait and Sneep are both 24 so they've outgrown it both in terms of age and experience, probably the same for Bortuzzo, Grant and Petersen who are 23.

you never get a second chance to make a first impression........it may be their only chance to live their dream, and they will do any and all that they can for just a chance for a second look. .....don't doubt me.

Look at the roster. It says UFA next to his name.

Only players still on their ELC get invited to prospect camp as this is more about general preparation (conditioning, food, training schedules, video review), an introduction to pro hockey style, and simply getting to know each other. Players beyond their 3rd year (rule of thumb) with the Pens don't get invited as they already know all those things by then.

Interesting that almost all of the free agents invited are college players, and many are teammates with some of our drafted prospects.

I have not heard anything about them giving up on Killeen. I think with the two drafted goalies and the one NCAA one, they did not feel like they were going to have enough time for Killeen. I am not certain.

Killeen was drafted in 08 so I imagine they think he's been to enough prospect camps.

Bryan Rust not on the roster - is he just not even a prospect for us anymore, or is it an NCAA thing?

Sucks that we could've picked Galiev there.

NCAA players have to pay their own way so maybe that's part of it, he might have classes in the Summer like Hanowski does. I imagine Pens still want him at the camp, he had a bad year but he's got 2 years left to turn it around.

Thinking this as well, he is going to be good I think and a steal at 86 overall. His numbers get better every year.

I am interested in seeing/hearing how Bennett looks coming off the bad knee and the bad season in general.

Going back to the WHL for one more year. Pens really high on him, they were considering drafting him instead of Harrington two years ago.

Big, mean, overly physical defenseman

That's the type of d-man Pittsburgh needs i've heard he's not afraid to drop the gloves too.

He definitely can throw them. His name will be forgotten by most due to Morrow/Pouliot/Maatta/Despres/Harrington, but I think he will play in the NHL one day as a Robyn Regher type

Probably didn't want to have to pay everything out of pocket because of his NCAA eligibility.

That would be great if he develops into a Robyn Regher type player, maybe in the future he could pair up with Olli Maatta.
