    I tried to compile a list of junior-eligible players (those born in 1992 and 1993) who are still in training camp. They're obviously in tough to make teams because of age and contract reasons which aren't present for older prospects so it's interesting to see who's around late in camp. Most NHL team sites are terrible so I probably missed a couple. Post those if you can.

    Ducks
    Devante Smith-Pelly

    Bruins
    Tyler Seguin

    Hurricanes
    Jeff Skinner
    Justin Faulk
    Ryan Murphy

    Blackhawks
    Brandon Saad

    Avalanche
    Gabriel Landeskog

    Blue Jackets
    Ryan Johansen

    Oilers
    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

    Panthers
    Jonathan Huberdeau
    Erik Gudbranson

    Canadiens
    Michael Bournival
    Brendan Gallagher

    Devils
    Adam Larsson

    Islanders
    Kirill Kabanov
    Nino Niederreiter
    Ryan Strome

    Senators
    Mika Zibanejad

    Flyers
    Sean Couturier

    Penguins
    Joe Morrow

    Lightning
    Brett Connolly

    Canucks
    Nicklas Jensen

    Jets
    Mark Scheifele

    Has played quite well during the preseason and might get a 9 game look, but he's almost 100% returning to Oshawa. Very raw, but should become a good top 6 forward if he keeps on developing at a good pace.

    Garrett Meurs, last I heard the Avs 5th round pick from 2011 was still there at least. Similar to how the Avs kept Bournival up real late in camp last year before sending him down and eventually trading him.

    Ducks
    Cam Fowler
    Devante Smith Pelly.

    Cam has looked phenomenal. First off, his positioning in his own end is fantastic. He knows where to go, who to chase, when to hit, he's been breaking up plays. And in the offensive zone he's even more incredible. Perfect handle on the puck, great vision, poise. Knows when to pass, knows when to shoot. Everything. Powerplay? He looks better than Visnovsky. He IS the number 1 PP dman now. He really looks like out best defenseman out there. Oh, and he's leading the team in points right now.

    DSP...I could go into it, but I think he gets 7-8 games and then gets sent back down. He's not ready for the NHL.

    I was rooting for him.

    Brett Bulmer for the Wild.

    Big guy, surprisingly solid. General thought on the wild board is he plays the 9 games and then gets sent down. Has a chance to stay, but it's a small one.

    And how do you say Schiefle?

    Seguin should be on their if you include Seguin.
    Fowler is a 91 so hes AHL eligable
    And Zibanejad isnt playing junior but hes old enough to

    Oh yeah that's right. Wish Etem and Smith Pelly were 91s :/ not much the O and the W can do for them.

    He has played really well after what I've heard, Tallon will make a decision on Friday. Players that were just drafted must be signed before Tuesday.

    From the sheer numbers on list in the original post then either the CHL is underrated or the NHL is overrated.

    Brendan Gallagher
    Micheal Bournival

    Saw Gallagher play, very fiesty and a scoring winger for sure really surprised me

    Kirill Kabanov is still in camp with the Islanders.

    I think Alex Theriau is still in camp with the Dallas Stars.

    Thanks, I was thrown off by the 2 games he played for Shawinigan at the beginning of September and thought he'd been returned to junior. Do the Habs usually let their Q prospects play games for their QMJHL junior teams prior to their training camp starting? I don't recall any other teams doing this (but i guess it could have easily escaped my notice).

    The Stars still list Theriau but he's already back playing in Medicine Hat. They just seem to be sloppy in updating their roster.

    He may be technically junior eligible, but I don't know if I'd call him "junior aged" since he's AHL-eligible (and that's where he'll be playing if he doesn't make the big club).

    Players like Hall and Horak aren't junior aged players as 1991 birthdates. They could only play junior as overagers, which is basically an exception to the age limits for major junior hockey.
