    You’d think the organization would get on top of this - the markets there for sure

    Interesting. The Bruins seem to be mining the Q a good bit lately for undrafted players.

    For me? Studnicka showed a lot of promise at one of these tournaments. Great speed and poise with the puck. Can’t wait to see how he does this year.

    I'll be there, so this sounds like good news for me. Although I typically eat myself to the point where my body shuts down, so I'll have to avoid the wings until after the games.

    Went to this last year. Unfortunately I won’t be able to go this year, but it was an amazing time.

    Anyone have a list of what Bruins prospects will be attending? (Sorry if it’s already been posted just not seeing it)

    My tentative roster so far

    Goalies
    Keyser
    Vladar

    Left D Right D
    Solovyev Andersson
    Zech Berglund
    Bychkov? doubt he comes over for this

    Left wing Center Right wing
    Lauko Asselin Lantosi
    Marchin Conway Olivier Voyer
    Shen Bjork? I'd have him there
    Steen
    Studnicka
    Mantykivi

    Am I missing anyone?
    Historically Boston brings it's top younger guys despite having pro experience
    Wouldn't be surprised to see TFred and Vaak there
    Can't bring the 8 College kids in the system
