Let’s Go Camping!

This week it’s New Jersey’s turn to hold the annual rookie development camp, as several NHL teams did last week. Starting tomorrow at 9 AM, a total of 36 players will be in attendance, some familiar faces and some new to the organization. Per the Devils PR, here’s the complete list:


Keith Kinkaid
Maxime Clermont
Scott Wedgewood
Chris Rawlings


Seth Helgeson
Jon Merrill
Joe Faust
Eric Gelinas
Brandon Burlon
Dan Kelly
Harry Young
Corbin McPherson
Reece Scarlett
Matt Killian
Damon Severson


Stefan Matteau
Peter McMullen
Mike Hoeffel
Ben Thomson
Reid Boucher
J.T. Barnett
J.S. Berube
Marcello Ranallo
Kelly Zajac
David Wohlberg
Graham Black
Darcy Zajac
Ben Johnson
Blake Coleman
Mike Sislo
Joe Whitney
David Friedmann
Bryan Haczyk
Kevin Goumas
Jack Berger
Michael Ambrosia

Breaking down the roster:

-16 players spent at least one game in an Albany uniform.

-5 are 2012 draft picks, including first rounder Stefan Matteau.

-9 are unsigned/undrafted invitees, including 2nd year participant Peter McMullen, grandson of former Devils owner John McMullen. Fire and Ice has more background info on those players.

Also worth noting: Joe Whitney and Darcy Zajac, both AHL free agents, are on the list. That’s a good sign of a possible return this season for both.

New Jersey’s PR Twitter account (@NHLDevilsPR) will be covering the camp all week.
