Rangers prospect camp invitees announced

The Rangers have announced the invitees to this summer’s prospect camp, which begins today.

The usual suspects –unsigned draft picks, AHL players on ELCs, overseas prospects– are on the list. There are a bunch of undrafted guys as well. I’m not going to pretend to know who the undrafted guys are. I’ll let Josh handle that.

    Buchnevich was assigned #91. Hopefully this means no Stamkos!

      Probably just a camp number. He’s a 19, but been repping 89 and 88 the last few seasons.

    I don’t have past year invitees,but it seems that this camp is short on one thing – draft choices from prior years not yet signed. Everyone on an ELC is here (except Skjei) and five of the six new draftees (Reunanen), but only Kovacs, Morrison, Zborovsky from those not yet signed and drafted in prior years. It may not be so bleak as there are some Europeans that may not conveniently attend, but it sure looks like there isn’t going to be much more coming from the old draft groups.

      Not sure if it applies here, but NCAA eligible players cannot attend these camps.

        That explains Tyler Nanne and Adam Huska. Unsigned Russians (Shesterkin) rarely make these camps, so that just leaves Daniel Bernhardt as a significant omission. So the main reason for the small number is that the Rangers don’t have many continuing draft choices.

        They can attend these camps, but they have to pay their own way, from travel to lodging to meals.

          Don’t forget about taking out an insurance policy. That’s another big expense.

          You’re right, the NCAA players aren’t forbidden to attend, but it is prohibitively expensive for them.
