Developmental camp begins this morning as players like Erik Gudbranson, Quinton Howden and this year’s third overall pick Jonathan Huberdeau will show off their skills in hopes of potentially earning a roster spot for the upcoming season. The sessions will be held at Saveology.com IcePlex Tuesday (today), Thursday and Friday. All sessions begin at 9:00 A.M. and are free and open to the public. There won’t be a great deal of physicality, as hitting will be almost minimal, but hopefully we’ll get to see some nifty stick handling and skating. The staff here will do their best to get out to these sessions with Friday being the one with the best chance for me. Although rumor has it that Little Miss Rat Trick will be there today….getting a glimpse of Erik. Dave plans on being there Tuesday and Friday.
