In addition, Steve DaSilva (Ottawa Senators), Clayton Bauer (Ottawa Senators), Chad Greenan (Detroit Red Wings), and Paul Kurceba (Florida Panthers) will also be participating in NHL Training Camps in September.
It is very rewarding for these players to attend an NHL Training Camp. They all have a strong work ethic both on and off the ice and it will be a great learning experience which will carry into the upcoming season, added Chynoweth.
