Eleven Current, Former Penn State Hockey Players To Attend NHL Development Camps
Penn State men’s hockey will be well represented at NHL development camps this summer, as eleven players are set to attend eight different camps following the conclusion of the 2018 NHL Draft.
As expected, rising sophomores Cole Hults (Los Angeles) and Evan Barratt (Chicago), rising junior Denis Smirnov (Colorado), and incoming freshman Aarne Talvitie (New Jersey) will all attend the camps of the NHL teams that drafted them. All four players were selected in the 2017 NHL Draft.
In addition to those four, Brandon Biro, Chase Berger, Alex Limoges, and Peyton Jones were all invited to attend different camps across the NHL. Berger and Limoges will join Eamon McAdam at the New York Islanders’ development camp, while Biro is headed to Buffalo from June 26 to 30.
Jones will go to the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals’ camp this week and will join Evan Barratt in Chicago later in July. Other alumni on development camp rosters include the recently departed Andrew Sturtz (Ottawa) and Trevor Hamilton (Detroit).
Here is the full list of players and when their respective camps take place:
