It was my first year in the NHL last year running a long camp, and that was a new experience. Running a short camp, however, is something I have more experience doing. I think it is going to be gauging where are players are – some have been playing and some haven’t – and getting them all up to speed. But having a seven-day camp is something I have done at other levels.”
The player mentioned is on the Pats. It's an interview with the GM of the team:
Jobke wasn't on the list of players submitted by the NHL.
"If there was a legit shot for him to go, we thought he would have been one of those guys named on that list," said Lang. "But having no indication from them at this time, I would foresee he would be with us.
"We wanted to protect ourselves from a CHL standpoint to ensure they're not depleting our rosters just for camps. They said the guys who have legitimate opportunities to compete for spots could go."
In that last part ... "They" might refer to the NHL, meaning if the list is accurate, and that statement is accurate, Stransky is being given a legitimate shot at the NHL.
Here is the list from the article:
Some of the names on the WHL list include: Matt Dum-ba (Red Deer Rebels), Victor Rask (Calgary Hitmen), Matej Stransky (Saskatoon Blades), Derrick Pouliot (Portland Winterhawks), Morgan Rielly (Moose Jaw Warriors), Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings), Ty Rattie (Portland) and David Musil (Oil Kings).
Faksa, Stransky, and Ritchie are on that CHL/NHL lockout list.
All three are available to get called up for camp.
(If I remember correctly)
I didn't remember anything about that list all. Sort of just stumbled on it this morning when I thought I'd check and see if they're were any mentions about Stransky coming to camp on any new articles.
