With hockey season right around the corner, now is as good a time as any to break down the training camp schedule. As in years past, the Bruins will open camp with a week for the rookies/prospects including a “Prospect Challenge” in Buffalo, before main camp opens the following week. Per the Bruins media team, the rosters for both camps will be released to the public by Friday of this week and we will update once available.
This year’s tournament will be held at the HarborCenter in Buffalo, NY and will be hosting the Sabres, Devils, Penguins and Bruins prospects, each of which will play 3 games total between Friday, Sep 8th and Monday, Sep 11th. Per the Sabres, tickets are $10 and can be purchased online or over the phone for any fans in the area.
