July 2017 Devils' Development Camp Thread

Recommended Posts

Devils' development camp runs all next week - I believe Monday is physicals and then Tuesday-Saturday is the actual camp.  Only players who are under ELCs or have not yet been to 5 development camps are eligible.

The Devils have invited two unsigned, undrafted players to development camp - F Nicolas Guay and F Robert Carpenter.

Here's the development camp roster -

G:  Blackwood, Appelby, Senn, Cormier

D:  Kapla, Santini, Jacobs, Dyblenko, Walsh, White, Sissons, Chainey, Davies

F:  Hischier, Zacha, McLeod, Bastian, Wood, Quenneville, Anderson, Gignac, Braddock, Kujawinski, Boqvist, Zetterlund, Cangelosi, Popugaev, Bratt, Studenic, Carpenter, Speers, Talvitie, Guay

^who's going to give us a camp report of the 3v3..  that should be enjoyable this year with all of our young forward talent. Although with 2 forwards and a D. You can't tell who is playing center.. which will be the thing to watch this preseason.

I'm sure Andrew Gross will be on hand and give us some tidbits.   I have watched some on periscope thanks to NJ Sk8guy (Rich who is no longer with Devils)

Wonder if this means Kerfoot is history? (we did suspect this) or Seney or Dudek?

I'll be at both events next week, really looking forward to it and I'll definitely report on who I think stands out. I'm not sure yet either but I may have 1 extra 3 on 3 ticket as well.

Kerfoot didn't come to last year's, but yeah, he is probably history.

NCAA players have to pay their own way to development camp so it's always a question whether they'll show.  I don't really think Dudek has a future in NJ.  I think Seney's been there before so who knows why he's not there this year.

Forwards are easily the best since I've been following the team

Defense, probably the worst lol

The development camp forwards in 1999 were not this good, which I think was the point Mantzas was trying to make.

I mean, I was 9 and living in South Jersey so I only watched the team when they played the Flyers 5x a year and in the playoffs. So yes, but no lol

Fair enough. I forgot which thread I was in and was thinking he was talking about Devils forwards overall.

Ok so this has nothing to do with Development Camp but I wasn't sure where else to put it so here it goes: 

Mark Divver‏ @MarkDivver

#NHLBruins will return to Sept. rookie tourney in Buffalo, along with Sabres & Devils. Hearing that Pittsburgh might be in, too.

Does anybody know if they will be doing a open scrimmage the last day of camp again this year? I would love to go to see this group of prospects play.

Cool changing of the times: it was pretty cool going on Instagram and seeing our prospects' IG stories of all being excited on their way to Jersey. Some posted pictures of them packing or on a plane, Bastian posted a picture of McLeod and him having breakfast with the caption "Next stop: Jersey".

All the bad of social media aside, it's cool to get a glimpse into 18-20 year old kids' excitement as they get one step closer to making the NHL.

Saw that Bastian photo of McLeod. I think this McLeod kid has the confidence and determination to stick this season.

Just scored tickets to tomorrow's 3v3 scrimmage. I have an extra ticket, so if anyone wants to go, just shoot me a PM and I'd be glad to share it. First come first serve.

As an aside, the Devils' forwards are absolutely loaded. 

Hischier, McLeod, Quenneville, Zacha, Speers, Anderson, Boqvist, Popugaev, Bratt, Zetterlund, Bastian, Wood, Gignac. Far cry from when our best prospect was Barry Tallickson.

I'm assuming Adidas hasn't manufactured any uniforms for the teams to use this summer, because the Devils are sporting the old Reeboks for Development Camp it looks like.

I'm a little surprised about that -- you'd think, especially with the backlash received after the unveiling, that they'd want to get the new jerseys out in the spotlight as quickly as possible and try to form an embrace among the fans.  I guess maybe they want to save it for opening night and make it more special, and also have the actual guys who make the roster sport the new ones rather than a bunch of prospects, but it's still a little surprising.
