Bruins not concerned about Zboril

The Boston Bruins announced Wednesday that the team’s development camp will begin next Tuesday, July 12.

Among the players named to the camp roster was Saint John Sea Dogs defenseman Jakub Zboril. After recording 13 fewer points in 2015-16 than he did the previous season, the Bruins’ 2015 first round pick has gotten some attention.

The Bruins, though, say they are not concerned with the 19-year-old’s development.

“But everything is on track with him,” Bruins assistant general manager Scott Bradley told CSN New England on June 26. “He’s going to come to camp and hopefully shines, and has a good year this year…patience.”

Bradley talks more about Zboril in this article.

Meanwhile, Carolina Hurricanes development is underway, which features Sea Dogs captain Spencer Smallman.
Former Sea Dogs forward Sam Povorozniouk is taking part in St. Louis Blues prospects camp. The Pioneer Press had a nice article on the Illinois native signing a tryout contract with the Chicago Wolves, which is the Blues’ AHL affiliate.

American Jamie Armstrong, a Sea Dogs prospect who was not selected in this year’s NHL Draft, is attending the Blues camp as well.

And while Ottawa Senators development camp has come to an end, the Ottawa Sun had a solid piece on the different paths prospects Thomas Chabot and Colin White are taking to the NHL.
