Red Wings Announce Prospects Camp Roster

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today revealed their roster for the 2014 NHL Prospects Camp, which is slated to run from Friday, Sept. 12 to Tuesday, Sept. 16 at Centre ICE Arena in Traverse City, Mich. Highlighting this year’s roster are 11 players who helped the Red Wings win their first-ever tournament championship last September, including Anthony Mantha, the reigning CHL most-valuable player after scoring 81 goals in 81 combined regular-season and playoff games during the 2013-14 season, Ryan Sproul, one of nine rookies to make their NHL debut for Detroit in 2013-14, and Martin Frk, a 2013 CHL Memorial Cup champion and the team’s top pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Six players from last year’s tournament went on to play for the Red Wings during the 2013-14 season. Over the 15-year tournament history, 440 players have moved on to skate in at least one NHL game. Prospects from the Buffalo Sabres, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues will also be competing in this year’s tournament.

Tickets are available for $10 per day and can be purchased at Centre ICE Arena, over the phone at 231-933-7465 and via fax through the ticket order form on www.centreice.org. Each ticket is good for all four games per day. Teams are divided into two divisions and will play each team within their division once during the round robin before a crossover on the final day of the tournament, with the first-place finishers in each division meeting for the championship on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Looks like the college boys can’t make it.  Guys like Mike McKee and Ben Marshall aren’t listed.

College players not just “can’t make it” due to classes—they’re prohibited from attending the camps.

As for Jensen and the rest, the Wings have to negotiate an ever-changing set of rules regarding age and experience to finesse their rosters every fall—the rules change every year—and Jensen is 24.
