Slowly the news about players attending Bruins rookie and training camp on tryouts is trickling in. The other day, former South Carolina Stingrays goalie and RIT standout Jared DeMichiel announced that he'd be attending; today, the Kingston Frontenacs (aka Ryan Spooner's OHL club) announced that overage player Connor Stokes will be making the trek to Boston with his OHL teammate on Wednesday.


After the jump, Brad Marchand still doesn't have a contract, a completely expected yet still awesome 'Teach Me How To Dougie' video, and too much about head injuries - a way too prevalent topic these days.
