With most NHL teams having announced rosters for summer development camps, there is again a great representation of talent bred in the BCHL.
Many of these players will have been drafted by the NHL clubs but the majority are free agent invites from the college ranks.
The BCHL is especially pleased to see nine of the following individuals reporting to camps that are direct from the league, as they’ve not yet gone off to college hockey.
The following list include 52 players though some NHL clubs have not yet released camp rosters.
* denotes drafted by club
^ denotes signed by club
+ denotes played in BCHL in 2016-17
% denotes recruit who will debut in the BCHL in 2017-18
All others are free-agent invites.
