Jeez. My brains not working fully I guess.. I was thinking maybe that was Calder Cup (which even then is the AHL and not the Q).

Best of luck to him and I would not be surprised if he cracks the lineup in calgary during the season.
I would bet that he makes the team and signs for 2 years at $750K per.

Loved his grit and a total team player, just took some bad penalties at the worst time.

He was pretty much cooked when he was in Boston 3 years ago.

Don't see how he won't be any different when he is older, coming off of a major surgery, and missing a year.

I don't see the point of this as we have Stajan, Comeau, Jones, Jackman, Bouma, Aliu all ahead of him but I am glad he is able to play again.

He won't make it I don't think, but no harm at this point for him to take a PTO from whoever it may be. Went to Canucks camp last year but didn't make it. Hasn't played in the NHL in a couple years now since playing a couple games for the Predators after being recalled (I think?). I totally forgot he's an ex-Flame.

Can we get a sticky for camp invitees like last year?

That's an even worse idea. Maybe use it for the Workd Championships.

Unconfirmed:

"Recent Merrimack grad Jesse Todd will ink a deal with the Reading Royals (ECHL), as well as getting an invite to the Washington Capitals’ rookie camp.

Todd appeared in five games for the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL) last season after finishing the season with the Warriors, where he scored 27 points in 36 games."

Thanks for the thread. Hopefully we can get it stickied and have it for organizational purposes so we know who is invited to where.

Also, Begin last played for the Predators (although mostly for the Admirals in the AHL).

Was invited to Vancouver's camp for 2011-12; then sat out season. Played for Nashville during 2010-11. Should i change it to Nashville?

Etienne Marcoux is invited to the Flyers' camp. (It's been confirmed by several sources on twitter)

Quote:
At least two more Kamloops Blazers will get a taste of the show in September.

Forward JC Lipon will attend NHL training camp with the Colorado Avalanche, and Brendan Ranford has been invited to the Montreal Canadiens’ camp.

Yeah I think I would. Try putting Milwaukee (AHL) instead since that's where he played last for the majority. caley set up the 2012 Free Agents thread like that and it looked good.

I would rather give that roster spot to Nemisz/Bouma/Aliu.

I think this is more of a try-out for the Heat. Abbotsford's lost a lot of grit this off-season with the departures of Desbiens (VAN), Leblond (UFA), and Ivanans (KHL).
