Sabres announce Development Camp

As touched upon briefly, Sabres President Ted Black mentioned last week that the Sabres would again be holding their Development Camp the first week of July. On Monday, they offered greater details with a formal announcement that the camp will take place July 5-10 at Dwyer Arena on the campus of Niagara University.

The camp will feature over 35 Sabres prospects. The team’s upcoming 2011 NHL Draft picks are also scheduled to attend the six-day camp.

The players will take part in both on-ice and off-ice workouts.  The goals of the camp are to give prospective players the fundamental ideas of the Sabres playing system and conditioning programs of an NHL player.  Camp participants will also study and examine NHL rules and the successful techniques a player must possess to become a professional athlete. 

The coaches will put these guys to work, so expect a rather fatigued group on the 10th. In the meantime, we'll try to stay on top of any invites in the week leading up to camp.
