Development Camp Begins on Tuesday

Sunday, July 10, 2011
UPDATE: The Penguins changed the starting date of their camp today. It will now begin on Tuesday 7/12 and run through the 16th with a scrimmage on Saturday. The team's release for the new schedule here.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their annual development camp this week starting tomorrow, 7/11 and running through to a Saturday scrimmage on 7/16. This will be the first year that the camp will be at the Consol Energy Center as opposed to the facilities at Southpointe.

Some of the big name guys that are scheduled to attend are Eric Tangradi and the three of the team's former first round draft choices defenseman Simon Despres (2009), forward Beau Bennett (2010) and defenseman Joe Morrow (2011).

You will probably recognize some, if not most of the remaining names of guys scheduled to attend the camp.
Goaltender Patrick Killeen, Maxime Legace and Rob Madore. Defenseman Alex Grant, Philip Samuelsson, Reid McNeill (pictured below), Joe Rogalski, Scott Harrington, Andrew Blazek and Nicholas D'Agostino. Forwards Keven Veilleux, Zach Sill, Nick Petersen, Paul Thompson, Brian Gibbons, Tom Kuhnhackl, Dominik Uher, Josh Archibald, Bryan Rust, Jessey Astles, Stefan Fournier, Scott Zurevinski, Jared Gomes and Scott Wilson.

A lot of AHL Penguins players to keep an eye on, especially some guys that haven't played in many AHL games like Paul Thompson, Brian Gibbons, Alex Grant and Philip Samuelsson. I'll keep everyone up to date with the major happenings of the camp. At least there is some hockey going on this week, even if it's just the rookies and prospects.

I can't wait to hear and see how it goes this coming week. As usual, there are some UFAs that I don't know well. I always find that interesting, too, seeing how they do. Interesting number of RW in the line-up this year.

It did start on the 11th my friend... they just had meetings and off-ice stuff. Sort of like an orientation day for the kids... first on ice day was Tuesday...
