Lowry to be NHL Test Subject
Broncos F Adam Lowry is one of six WHL prospects headed out to attend the NHL's Research, Development and Orientation Camp next week in Etibicoke, ON.
Here's a story from nhl.com:
The cream of the crop for the 2011 Entry Draft will get their first taste of life in the NHL when they report to the Toronto Maple Leafs' training facility in Etobicoke, Ont., to take part in the 2010 NHL Research, Development and Orientation Camp Fueled by G Series on Aug. 18-19.
The purpose of the camp is for team officials to get a look at possible rules changes -- with the extra benefit that 33 of the top 2011 Draft-eligible prospects will show off their skills while bringing those changes to life.
"This Camp has the bonus element of giving general managers and their staffs an early season look at many of the players whose names they will be calling out as their teams' top-round selections in the June 2011 Entry Draft in St. Paul," said E.J. McGuire, Director of the NHL Central Scouting. "These are some of the most talented players available to execute the unique skills and strategies which the camp is designed to test and evaluate."
"This will be a great learning experience and opportunity for these players," said NHL Vice President Hockey and Business Brendan Shanahan. "Team personnel get an up-close look at these 2011 Entry Draft prospects while we hope to provide the players with a fun and informative two days."
