HERE AND THERE; NHL Development Camp Outlook

It’s just the beginning.
And whether as a drafted prospect, or free agent invite, the NHL experience began earlier this week for a number of current and past members of the Greyhounds with participation at their respective Development Camps.

And while for some there will be a sense of familiarity, that won’t be the case for at least a trifecta of Hounds.
Morgan Frost, Conor Timmins and Matthew Villalta will skate among their peers at the new level for the first time.

All three were members of the 2017 NHL draft class.

It was that Draft (2017 NHL Entry Draft) that highlighted the success of the Soo Greyhounds program as it marked the 7th straight year where three or more members of the organization heard their named called by an NHL club, while it also resulted in the 4th time in the last 5 years the Hounds have developed a 1st Round NHL pick.

Who’s where? And what’s taking place?
Let’s take a look around the NHL Development Camps with some basic info about each camp and the Hounds connection:
