Although he wasn’t picked in this weekend’s NHL Draft, Matthew Highmore has still received an invitation to attend a development camp.
RDS’ Stephane Leroux tweets that Highmore and fellow QMJHL players M-Olivier Crevier-Morin, Alexandre Goulet, Bokondji Imama, and Philippe Gadoury have been invited to attend Montreal Canadiens development camp.
This is certainly nothing new. Over the past few years, a lot of non-drafted QMJHL players have been invited to take part in Habs camp.
In his second season with the Sea Dogs, Highmore finished second in team scoring with 19 goals and 31 assists in 68 games.
In NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings, Highmore was listed at No. 155.
Defenseman Olivier LeBlanc was the only Sea Dogs player selected in this year’s draft, going 197th overall to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
