NCAA bound Adam Gaudette and William Lockwood will be there. Due to NCAA regulations, they will have paid their own way there.
LOL - The NCAA is such a joke. Everyone gets a slice of the huge pie except the athletes.

Yeah, and there's no way the Canucks aren't rightfully helping.

Adam and Will's parents are all of a sudden local area scouts for a few weeks! :wink:

You're dead on, Corn. Do you know what the directors for the major bowls make? They organize one football game a year and they make between $500,000 and $1,000,000. The money in college football is massive.

But make sure you don't invite a player to a BBQ, you'll be fined by the NCAA for offering him a cash-equivalent.

It's now common place for NCAA prospects to take part of development camps, Aquilini just just hits the bank machine and hands out envelopes containing wads of cash to help fund there participation. Untraceable. It's the Italian way

Just a quick look-see at camp today.

The finally game is tomorrow at 6:pm, July 6th, at Rogers Arena.
I believe Face-book stream only.

Did they televise this game last year on Sportsnet? Can't remember.

Pettersson really has great skills. If he ever gains 20 lbs or so, he will be a star.

Agree 100%. Just saw his moves on sportsnet app.
With the science and cash involved in the development of these kids it isn't even a question whether they can thicken them up anymore.

That kid probably has the highest ceiling of any prospect we've scene in a while! Maybe that's not saying a lot but he has some serious skills.

He could turn out to be a real gem, he was heads and tails above the other prospects and didn't look like he was trying much at all. Amazing hands, really smooth skating.

Now it was against prospects I know but he definitely stood out!
