Tropp heading to USA Evaluation Camp

Corey Tropp, Buffalo's third round pick in 2007, has been chosen to skate in the 2008 U.S. National Jr. Evaluation Camp that will be held in Lake Placid, NY on August 1st-9th. A sophomore at Michigan State in the fall, Tropp is one of 53 players identified as candidates for USA's entry in the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championships. The Grosse Pointe, MI native scored six goals and 17 total points in 42 games as freshman in 2007-08, and is expected to be a key contributor for the Spartans after the early departure of leading scorer and fellow Sabres prospect, Tim Kennedy.

Is it likely we sign him after his sophomore year instead of letting him play out his junior year like Kennedy did, and now that we have our own farm club & could really use some right wingers?

Tropp's game still has some maturing to do. As of now, keep him at MSU for the foreseeable future and let nature take its course with incremental strides.
