The Winnipeg Jets released their Development Camp roster, which includes some non-Jet prospects. These free agents are excellent to invite, as it allows the Jets to further scout talent and build relationships, all while filling out the roster to have a more efficient camp.
For the most part invites tend to be a bit of fodder, as it is rare for these players to move beyond ECHL or European pro-level players at the peaks of their career.
But, there can sometimes be talent found.

The Winnipeg Jets drafted Calgary Hitmen centre Jordy Stallard 127th overall. Stallard recored 49 points (21 goals, 28 assists) in 68 games for the Hitmen. As Stallard was only a few days shy of being draft eligible in 2015, this coming season will be his 19 year old season in the WHL. Therefore he will be eligible to play for the Moose as soon as 2017-18.
Here are some highlights from Stallard's 2015-2016 season after the jump.

The Prospect Development Camp is always a fun part of summer. The team has just added a new crop of players to their prospect cupboards and fans are excited to see the new draftees in person for the first time.
It is a time of learning and teaching. It is also a time of bonding, as players within the organization get a chance to meet each other and grow together.
Another benefit to camp is the ability to form relationships between the organization and undrafted players who may become future free agents.
