by Staff Writer / Minnesota Wild
The National Hockey League’s (NHL) Minnesota Wild announced today that the organization will hold a development camp for team prospects July 24-30.  Six of the seven days will be spent at Xcel Energy Center (July 24-27, July 29-30) and one day of practice will be held at Parade Ice Garden (July 28).


The seven-day camp will focus on the development of the organization’s top young prospects in both on-ice and off-ice settings.  Minnesota Wild coaches Mike Ramsey, Mario Tremblay and Bob Mason, along with Houston Aeros Head Coach Kevin Constantine will lead the on-ice sessions.  The prospects will also participate in daily strength and conditioning education sessions and receive nutritional instruction.

A total of 31 players are scheduled to attend the Wild’s 2007 Prospects Camp including 22 selected by Minnesota in the NHL Entry Draft.  Players scheduled to attend include the team’s last three first round draft picks: Colton Gillies (2007), James Sheppard (2006) and Benoit Pouliot (2005) and former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher and 2003 Wild draft pick Danny Irmen.
