The St. Louis Blues have decided not to have a prospects camp this summer and are currently in the midst of off-ice training.
Doug Armstrong, who will become the new GM of the Blues on July 1, decided not to have a prospects camp, and thought the off-ice training sessions would be a better idea. Fifteen Blues and prospects, Erik Johnson, T.J. Oshie, David Perron, Alex Pietrangelo, Ian Cole and Cam Janssen, are currently undergoing off-ice activities with strength coach Nelson Ayotte. Blues' second round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft, Philip McRae agrees. "Prospect camp is in the middle of the summer and no one is really in game shape," McRae said. "The camp that matters is training camp, so I think it's more important to work out off the ice and get stronger."
