Get To Know The Canadiens Development Camp Prospects


With close to 40 Canadiens prospects at the Habs training facility in Brossard until June 12, I thought it would be useful to track down information on all participants and put it all in one place for reference.

This idea took root when I began looking at the list of invited players and noticed several players who were offered tryouts. In wanting to learn more about them, I started reading and collected some links. Before I realized what I was doing, I thought I might as well cover all 40 players, and make a post of it. Little did I know it would take the better part of the day!

In all, I looked up 38 players, leaving out known quantities Max Pacioretty and Yannick Weber, as they have essentially graduated to the big club. Of those 38, only Dany Masse will not be in Brossard, as he will be undergoing surgery some time this week.

Because there is so much to cover here, I divided the players up into categories starting with the seven players in camp on tryouts, followed by Hamilton Bulldogs and Cincinati Cyclone players (12) currently on their first professional contracts. The next section concerns prospects still in college or with a junior hockey affilaition (11) of which only two have signed pro contracts. The final group are the eight recently drafted players, all of whom will be attending the camp.

Be forewarned - you won't read all of this in one day. There are 131 links ahead. Like I said - it's a reference. If anyone has a particular link to add, drop it in the comments and it will be added. After comments close in 31 days, you can e-mail me and I will add it in.

The lists follow after the jump.
