The Canadiens development camp will take place from July 10 to 13

The Canadians announced Saturday that their development camp will take place from Sunday, July 10, to Wednesday, July 13. A total of 40 players have been invited to the camp which will be held at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard. Out of 40 players, there are 23 attackers, 12 defenders and 5 goalkeepers.

Here is the complete list of the 40 invited players:

Among the invited players is obviously the first pick of the last draft, Juraj Slafkovsky, who will perform for the first time in front of the Montreal fans and media. He impressed, in the playoffs, with his maturity and his joy of being part of the CH organization. The Slovakian will wear number 60 during camp, the number he wore when he played for Slovakia in the world championship.

In fact, Slafkovsky won’t be the only player drafted in the last two days to show up for development camp, as all 11 players drafted this year are invited by the team. This means we’ll see Slafkovsky, Filip Mesar, Owen Beck, Lane Hutson, Vinzenz Rohrer, Adam Engstrom, Cedrick Guindon, Jared Davidson, Emmett Croteau, Petteri Nurmi and Miguel Tourigny in action at Brossard, all of whom have heard their name on the stage. this year’s draft.

Most of the players present were recruited by the Canadian in recent years or have signed a contract as a free agent. The others come from a previous transaction or have simply been invited by the organization even if they do not belong to the Habs.

7 players were invited without belonging to the team, but one name draws a little more attention: Nick Rhéaume. Nick Rhéaume, you guessed it, is related to goalkeeper Manon Rhéaume. she is his aunt. On top of that, Nick is also the son of Pascal Rhéaume, who is currently an assistant coach at the Trois-Rivières Lions.

Another interesting name is part of the list of invited players. This is Pierrick Dubé, who started last season with the Lions in the ECHL, but returned with Shawinigan in the QMJHL. He has had a stellar season and probably wants to show that he has improved since last year.

Several Americans who play in the NCAA participate in development camp, but not training camp in September. The rules are strict in the NCAA and these players are only entitled to 48 hours of camp paid by the professional team, otherwise they will become professionals and will no longer be able to play on the American circuit. After these two days, college players often quit, but others stay on their own. Paying for hotel, food and equipment when you are a student is quite expensive, which is why many leave after 48 hours.

It should be noted that Kaiden Guhle and Logan Mailloux will also be in camp, but are classified as injured, so they won’t be practicing on the ice.

Notable absences include big names like Jordan Harris and Jan Mysak. No news from Harris, but we have an explanation for Mysak. The Czech camp starts in six days for the world championship and he will act as team captain. The captain must be in good shape!

The 40 players will be divided into two groups that will practice on two courts at the Bell Sports Complex at the same time. Players will face off-ice tryouts and practices on day one, but will soon see more action with on-ice practices on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

In addition to off-ice tryouts and training, players will be entitled to conferences and training. In addition to various sports training, players will also be able to follow the Respect and Consent program taught by former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy. Bruno Gervais will also be part of this program.

the icing on the sundae ; all training sessions on the ice are open to the public if the curious want to see the future of the Canadiens in action.

A lot of

– The Cup was at Sorel-Tracy today!

– Today was the beginning of the Benjamin St-Juste camp and several young people took advantage of it.

– Wimbledon vetoes players/their Russians… and a player of Russian origin wins the tournament. A bit ironic.

– The referee had an easy whistle.

– Strong performance in the WNBA 3-point shooting contest.
