Flyers prospect camp begins Monday

Posted: July 10, 2012

The Flyers expect 43 players to show up Monday for the start of the weeklong prospects camp at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

The camp, set to be held from Monday through Sunday, consists of six on-ice sessions - all open to the public - and the annual Trial on the Isle in Stone Harbor on Wednesday.

The camp will feature many of the Flyers' young prospects, including several players selected in the NHL entry draft over the last three seasons.

Many of the players spent all or part of last season with the American Hockey League's Adirondack Phantoms, while others played major junior or collegiate hockey.

Among the players expected to compete are center Nick Cousins, considered by many as the Flyers' top minor-league prospect; center Scott Laughton, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft; and goalie Anthony Stolarz, the Flyers' second-round pick in the 2012 draft.

On Wednesday after the Trial on the Isle team drills, the players will play in a charity softball tournament in Stone Harbor. All proceeds will benefit Flyers Charities, with a donation going to American Legion Post No. 31.

At noon on Wednesday, the players will host a clinic in the parking lot of Stone Harbor Elementary School at 275 93d St., and another clinic will be held at 3 p.m. at the 80th Street blacktop.

The players will be available to sign autographs at the school from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. The admission fee is a $10 donation to Flyers Charities. Fans will receive a team photo of the prospects.

The players will then play a charity softball game at 4 p.m. at the 80th Street field. At 5:30, a barbecue will be held at the Stone Harbor Yacht Club. Fans can make a reservation to have dinner with the prospects by calling 609-368-1201.
