Calgary Flames prospects will start their 2008 training camp with a two game rookie tournament against the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks in Camrose, AB.


The three team tournament, hosted by the Oilers, will occur from Sunday, September 14 to Tuesday, September 16 at Encana Arena in Camrose’s newly opened Edgeworth Centre.

Flames prospects will report to Calgary on September 10 and participate in the Flames Annual Charity Golf Classic on September 11.

Fitness testing for the rookies gets underway on September 12 followed by the first on-ice session scheduled for September 13 at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

Among the players expected to participate in the prospects tournament are recent first round picks Leland Irving and Mikael Backlund and Greg Nemisz, who was chosen in the first round by the Flames last June.

Complete details of the Flames main training camp will be announced later this month.
