The stars of tomorrow (we hope!) will be in town this week at the Canadiens’ annual development camp.
On-ice sessions begin 2:30 this afternoon at the Centre Sportif Candiac – 2 Glaces. It’s at 10 Radisson in beautiful downtown Candiac on Montreal’s south shore.
If you can find the joint – as Pat Hickey and Mike Boone are hoping to – you can watch 30 prospects: three goaltenders (including the just-drafted 6’7" Jason Missiaen) 11 defencemen (including David Fischer, Ryan McDonagh, P.K. Subban, Yannick Weber and Mathieu Carle), five centres (Olivier Fortier, Ben Maxwell, Brock Trotter) six left wings (big studs Max Pacioretty and Andrew Conboy) and five RWs (Ryan White, James T. Wyman and this year’s top pick, Danny Kristo).
On-ice sessions will continue Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The players will also undergo off-ice conditioning (as will Hickey and Boone, if they can find a bar in Candiac).
