…when you start seeing things like the Traverse City tournament roster, you know training camp is right around the corner. I think I’m excited!
…before anyone asks, 2012 first round pick Brady Skjei isn’t on the roster because NCAA players aren’t eligible to participate in the Traverse City tournament.
…as far as the guys on the team, I’d love to see Duclair and Haggerty use the tournament as a springboard to push for a roster spot when camp starts on September 18th. Derek Stepan did that same exact thing back in 2010, so with a couple of roster spots absolutely up for grabs, it’d be exciting for these two youngsters to give some of the veterans a run for their money.
