Just called Center Ice, and they said tickets for the Prospect Tourney won’t go on sale until August, and it will be the fax sale that George mentioned.

I think I may try to make up there this year.  The last time I went was in 2001 and featured the likes of Datsyuk, Kovalchuck and Danny Heatley.  The other future NHLers I remember included Jason Williams, Chad LaRose, Sean Avery, Darcy Hordichuk, Brian McGrattan, Kyle Wanvig and several others.

A buddy and I went for the weekend.  We ended up talking with one of the prospect’s parents for a long time (I forget his name, some defensemen in the Atlanta system).  The parents thought we were scouts or something and were stunned that we were just fans there to enjoy the games.
