…always great hear that Rangers prospects are good enough to be invited to these camps.
Meanwhile, Christian Thomas (2010 – 2nd) was invited to Team Canada’s Evaluation camp that started earlier this week and is apparently tough…
Just got back to the hotel after first practice. Tough one. Team White is looking good. #gassed
…if Thomas thinks development camp is tough just wait till he gets to Camp Tortorella.
Thomas has been skating on a line with Boone Jenner and Phillip Danault.
