Having this a bit early this year. Sad there appears to be no scrimmage this year but I'll be glad to go down at least one day and check out the kids. A lot of them have been around working out too, so they are kinda working this in. I think they usually have 3 groups and are having 4 this year. More invites? Expected bigger draft class?

Yes, definitely. A lot of teams do it right after the draft since they want to welcome to prospects to the city right away.

I think Columbus expects theirs to report on Sunday after the draft.

Avs said they'd introduce the class on Monday, so with them all there maybe they all get to be at the presser.

That's actually pretty cool. Guess we don't have to wait long to see them on the ice. Really wish I lived in Colorado for things like this!

I would love to go to this, but knowing it will entirely be skating drills I think I will pass until more information comes out.

The Avs are introducing the draft picks to season ticket holders Monday, so they'll definitely be there if they're able too.

Going to post this here for now, at least until we figure out some more details and then decide if we want a separate thread for it:

Oh nice find, thanks.

AZ was previously with LA, who is going to do something with Vegas now. Makes sense AZ jumped in.

The "Latest Threads" sidebar actually came in handy! (I generally never pay attention to it...but the thread title I found this info in caught my eye )

Hugo is a great kid! Not sure he has an AHL future, but just a fantastic kid.

Or maybe last year? If they were interested in Fitzpatrick last year maybe they put those two on the radar for this draft.

Francis Leclerc is interesting. Was the best rookie goalie in the QMJHL last year with Alex D'Orio. I would have invited Baribeau or Samuel but not like they'd sign the goalie anyways.

Nice to see Leclerc get an invite although camp invites rarely turn into anything as we've seen over the years. Go get 'em kid!

Any word on the camps roster or will that likely be Monday?

I did see that there is an afternoon session including all the groups. I wonder if that is puck and shooting drills. I might check out one of those days.

Avs don't really invite these kids just for development camp only, we've seen in the past that they also invite these kids to the main camp as well.

You might disagree with me Bender, but I suggest that if Gregoire's has a good camp, he can definitely be signed to an ELC deal. He has PPG as a defender during his first draft year eligibility. I get the sense that if the NHL rounds were expanded back to 8 or 9, Avs would have taken him there.

Gregoire is in his 2nd draft year. With how many deserving kids are going undrafted I think the NHL should expand to 8 maybe even 9 rounds
