We are now at the point in the year where things start to get hectic as players and re-signed and new free agents join the team. In the midst of all this chaos the young Pittsburgh Penguins prospects as well as a large number of undrafted invites are in town for 2018 Prospect Development Camp.
The players are split into two groups which each practice on Wednesday June 27 and Thursday June 28. On Friday June 29 the two groups have a morning skate and then everybody comes together in the evening for the annual 3-on-3 tournament. For the tournament the players are split into four teams and the eventual victor will be presented with a Michel Briere Cup.
There are 38 players in attendance: 4 goaltenders, 12 defensemen, and 22 forwards. 16 of the players are either signed by or have their rights held by the Penguins organization while the remaining 22 are all undrafted free agents invited to try out. Jordy Bellerive, who was recently injured in a fire, and Zachary Lauzon, who missed the majority of the season due to injury, will not be participating this year. So let’s take a look and see who we have and what their future prospects look like.
