The development camp is a great time for Jets’ fans to get a first time viewing of the new crop of draft picks. It is also a time the team gets to invite some unprotected prospects to see if any are worth a contract or tryout at the prospect tournament in Penticton.
The Jets 2015 roster includes the entirety of the 2015 draft class, which is pretty exceptional given the amount of players who are going to the NCAA this fall. Due to rules in the NCAA, players must pay full expenses for all time spent with the NHL team, including lodge, travel, and food.
One interesting note is the Jets invited Brennan Serville, a NCAA prospect who has graduated, but has not yet been signed to an Entry Level Contract.
Other than Serville, the other prospects not Jet property invited are:
G James Kruger
D Troy Stecher
D Craig Dalrymple
D Nolan Valleau
F Brandon Denham
F Nolan LaPorte
F Daniel Leavens
F Tyler Morley
F Bradley Schierhorn
F Landon Smith
We at Jets Nation will break down some of the more interesting invites on a later date.
