  • You know the names, now it is time to see some of the new young faces at Development Camp. Boston Globe
  • Questions will be answered over the camp session: Who will demonstrate growth? What is Urho Vaakanainen’s style? Is Anders Bjork ready to roll? Boston Herald
  • Get down to Warrior Arena- these are the quintet of youngsters you need to see. CBS Boston
  • Ryan Spooner has now filed for arbitration. It is time to give him his legitimate shot as a center- or lose him for no return at all. WEEI
  • As far as free agency, maybe another go with Jaromir Jagr is in order? Or maybe scoop up Thomas Vanek - if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Metro/Boston
  • American Bruins offered patriotic greetings over social media yesterday. Bruins NHL

Elsewhere around the rink:
