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:
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.
