NHL Development Camp Updates
Michael Downing (L) and Zach Hyman at Florida Panthers Development Camp

Over the next three weeks, 11 players from the 2013-14 University of Michigan ice hockey team will attend NHL Development Camps. The professional-level camps, which do not affect student-athletes NCAA eligibility, are designed to give players the experience of an NHL training camp. Rookies and prospects are subjected to on-ice practice and scrimmage sessions, medical and fitness testing and meetings and seminars, as well as off-ice team-building activities.

Seven current Michigan players accepted invitations to camps, including Mike Chiasson (Carolina), JT Compher (Buffalo), Zach Nagelvoort (Edmonton), Dylan Larkin (Detroit), Kevin Lohan (Winnipeg), Michael Downing (Florida) and Zach Hyman (Florida). Michigan Hockey alums Kevin Clare (Detroit), Alex Guptill (Ottawa), Mac Bennett (Montreal) and Phil Di Giuseppe (Carolina) will also attend camps.
