Camp starts on July 10 and continues to July 14 at RWJ-Baranbas Hockey House at the Prudential Center. Stein mentions that the camp will allow players to learn skills both on and off the ice that will allow them to succeed in the NHL should they make it.
Some interesting facts that Stein gives in her article that accompanied the roster reveal is that Andreev is the nephew of former Devil and current Binghamton Devils coach Sergei Brylin. He will be playing at Cornell University in the fall. Boston University player Carpenter is the son of former Devils player and coach Bobby Carpenter. Also, Veronneau is currently a player at Princeton University.
Good luck to all those attending this camp.
