Noel, Webster Receive Camp Invites

As expected, it didn’t take long for Nathan Noel to receive an invite to an NHL development camp.

Noel, who surprisingly went undrafted at this weekend’s NHL Draft, has accepted an invite to attend Anaheim Ducks development camp. According to Grant McCagg of McKeen’s Hockey, a few teams invited Noel to camp - including the Montreal Canadiens who have been known to invite a ton of undrafted QMJHL players in recent years – but Noel ultimately chose Anaheim.

The 18-year-old centre from St. John’s was ranked 54th amongst North American players by NHL Central Scouting, 78th by and 119th by ISS. He was one of the biggest surprises to be passed over in this year’s draft.

Noel had this to say on Twitter today:
Sea Dogs defenseman Bailey Webster, who also went undrafted this weekend, has tweeted that he has been invited to Habs development camp.
Webster, who had one goal and five assists in 54 games with Saint John last year, was ranked 122nd by Central Scouting and 143rd by

Also undrafted today were defensemen Jack vanBoekel and Jason Bell. Both were ranked by Central Scouting.
