Nine Hitmen heading to NHL Camps

The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club today announced nine Hitmen players will head to National Hockey League Training Camps.

Of the nine set to depart this week, eight are drafted prospects while Pavel Padakin has received a free agent invite to the Calgary Flames 2014 prospects’ training camp.

"It’s a great achievement for our organization to have nine players from our current roster invited to attend an NHL training camp," said Hitmen General Manager and Vice President of Business Operations Mike Moore. "The experience they will gain performing against players on an elite stage will be extremely valuable and rewarding.”
