The Bruins announced today the roster of young players that will be in Kitchener, Ontario for this year's rookie camp, including 11 players who will be playing in their home province of Ontario. As part of the trip, the Bruins prospects are participating in a tournament featuring young players from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and Pittsburgh Penguins.
I typed up the entire roster complete with height, weight, date of birth, and hometown, but it didn't save properly...and there is 0% chance that I am doing it again. The roster is available on the Bruins website. Most of the players were either at the development camp this summer or played in the Bruins organization last season, but there are a few non-roster invitees, including defenseman and Kitchener native Brad Good.
Bruins first round draft pick Jordan Caron will not be participating in the camp after fracturing his collarboneafter a big open ice hit from Colton Teubert during an intrasquad scrimmage that was part of Team Canada's World Junior Try-Out Camp earlier this month.
The players will report to Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington on the morning of Saturday, September 5th for off-ice testing before departing for Kitchener. On Sunday, the players are scheduled to practice at Kitchener Memorial Auditorium at 2:00 p.m. in preparation for their game Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs' rookies (2:00 p.m., Kitchener Memorial Auditorium). The team will return to the ice at the Auditorium Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. for practice. Wednesday afternoon, the Rooks will take on the Ottawa Senators' youngsters at 2:00. The trip concludes with one last matinee matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins prospects before heading back to Boston.
