2014 Rookie Camp

93 posts in this topic

vadvlfan brought up the upcoming Rookie Camp (July 13-18) in the 2014 draft thread so I figured we might as well get this thread started. Apparently the entire 2014 draft class is expected to attend as are the CHL players. Always tough to tell if the NCAA prospects will get a chance so we'll have to wait and see.

 

Probably won't know the full roster till the 13th but a few names have trickled in for the undrafted invitees:

F Matt Lorito (Brown) (Source)

LW/C Ross Mauermann (Providence) (Source)

D Tyler Wood (Brown) (Source)

C/RW Ryan Rosenthal (Coquitlam – Northeastern recruit) (Source)

LW Nick Saracino (Providence) (Source)

C/RW Jayden Hart (Prince Albert) (Source)

RW Eric Faille (University of Moncton) (Source) (hat tip to caron14 for pointing this out)

C Matt Needham (Kamloops) (Source)

 

I'll write up more on these guys when it's not close to 5 AM.

 

Last year the Devils invited G Jake Hildebrand (Michigan State) whose had a solid NCAA career and G Brandon Hope (Owen Sound). Hildebrand was invited to the Penguins camp July 15-21 but it seems like he’s on campus this summer and won’t attend any NHL prospect camp. He's a potential UDFA to keep an eye out for next spring. Still I imagine they'll find another goalie or two to invite.

 

I also wonder if they'll invite guys like C Brady Vail (Windsor) or C Austin Czarnik (Miami).

 

D Nolan Zajac (Denver) will be at the Jets camp July 7-11 so I doubt to see him in the Devils camp.

It never is because of security reasons.

 

i'd assume that's bullsh!t... same rules under 2 different rinks and 29 other teams are allowed to. Its all Lou we know that.

It is 100% Lou.  While I like Lou a lot and will miss him if and when he retires I really won't mis his treatment of turning the practice rink into Area 51 when it's in use by the team.

I know. It's a joke. People always ask TG about it.

I believe when this was held at South Mountain Arena it was open to the public, because the Devils did not own the rink.

Fiesty, you should be invited to this event to relay players progress back to us!

Oh yeah, great info fiesty, you really do a great job with this.  I hope they give us some video, always interesting to see some of the guys (even if it is usually endless chaos - still I'd be curious to see Graham Black and Ben Johnson, plus the 2014 draftees).

Didn't they show entire periods of scrimmages a couple of years ago?

Thanks everyone!

Éric faille is invited. EX captain of Acadie-Bathurst Titan. (QJMHL)

Thanks for the heads up. I see he just spent the past 4 years playing CIS for the University of Moncton, must be trying to pull off the improbable Joel Ward path. I'll update the list in the 1st post.

I guess in no big hurry to get that list out are they? I wonder if D. Clarkson attended any prospect camps. (for any team) btw, Clarksons brother Doug, is now a Devil!

 

...................a Cardiff (Wales) Devil!

A lil off topic but Cody Wydo participated in prospects camp last year.  He's going into his senior year @ Robert Morris, and was made Capt.  He had most goals on the team last season. Is R. Morris a d-3 or D-1 college? not a big guy but wonder if he's been long forgotten by Dev's scouting.

Robert Morris is D1. A bit older (he'll be entering his age 23 season) but in 3 years of NCAA action he has 114 GP 65-42-107 for 0.94 Pts/GP. Averaged 3.67 SH/GP last year. I'm sure he'll get some interest this spring by some NHL organizations. I've been trying to search for more invitees to this camp but his name is nowhere to be found (yet).

 

One guy we can add to the list is C Matt Needham who just finished his age 18 season for Kamloops in the WHL. (Source) He has 180 GP 39-70-109 for 0.61 Pts/GP. 24 of his points came at EV last year with a great 75% point share.

 

We'll probably know the full roster in a few hours but I'm going to try to get a quick post together on the guys we know of, unless I end up falling asleep doing it.

From Nhl scout, Mike Morreale's, Twitter:

A few scouts have told me Devils 1st-Rd pick John Quenneville reminds them of Jason Pominville. He's very quick; obvious in drills here
