Bruins announce Development Camp roster

The Bruins have announced the roster for the upcoming Bruins Development Camp this week. Its got both the usual expected names, and a bit of local flavor as well.

The Bruins selections from last weekends NHL Draft will be in attendance headed by first round pick Malcolm Subban and Charlestown native Matthew Grzelcyk. Uber-prospects Dougie Hamilton, Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight will be like grizzled veterans among the fresh-faced youngsters at Ristuccia Arena.

The sixth annual Bs Development Camp will open on Thursday, June 28, and run through Monday, July 2 at Ristuccia Arena. On-ice practice sessions and skating drills will be held along with scrimmages at the end of the week.

*An original St. Louis Blues jersey from the old time hockey days has found its way back to its original home in St. Louis.

*Steve Simmons says that Dave Bolland has earned the right to be more than a punch line at this point in his career.

Saturday, Aug. 27: Adding toughness Habs' priority

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, after a busy morning celebrating my 3-year-old’s birthday at the trampoline park. Yee-ha.

*PHT writer Joey Alfieri says that adding toughness was a big offseason priority for the Montreal Canadiens.

*There’s at least one big fan of the Edmonton Oilers trade that brought defenseman Adam Larsson from the New Jersey Devils, and that fan’s name is Mark Letestu.

*Here’s everything you need to know about the Ice Guardians movie premiering this fall that takes a long, balanced look at the NHL enforcers.

*CSN Washington takes a look at the New York Rangers in their season previews for the Metro Division.

*I’m not entirely sure whether this “RIP Harambe” thing is genuine or meant to be ironic by the largely millenial group that seem so enamored with it, but I think it’s just stupid. I think the same with the crying Jordan meme…also stupid.

*For something completely different: a look at how Triumph the Insult Comic Dog learned how to poop on Trump’s politics.
