Providence, R.I. -
Nine current Providence College men's hockey players are expected to attend National Hockey League (NHL) Development Camps this July.
The list of current Friars expected to attend camps includes senior Ross Mauermann (Janesville, Wis.), juniors Jon Gillies (South Portland, Maine), John Gilmour (Montreal, Quebec), Mark Jankowski (Dundas, Ontario), sophomores Anothony Florentino (West Roxbury, Mass.) and Conor MacPhee (Windham, N.H.) as well as freshmen Brian Pinho (North Andover, Mass.) and Jake Walman (Toronto, Ontario).
Drafted players and free-agent prospects are allowed to participate in the NHL development camps, which are held throughout the month of July.
Gillies, Gilmour and Jankowski are attending the Calgary Flames' Development Camp. Gillies (third round, 75th overall, 2012), Gilmour (seventh round, 198th overall, 2013) and Jankowski (first round, 21st overall, 2012) were each drafted by the Flames.
Mauermann, MacPhee and Rooney are free agents. Providence’s leading scorer in each of the past three seasons, Mauermann will attend camp with the New Jersey Devils, while MacPhee will head to the Washington Capitals camp. Rooney was the first Friar to head to an NHL camp this summer as he has finished up at the New York Rangers development camp.
Florentino will attend Buffalo’s camp for a second consecutive summer after being selected in the fifth round (143rd overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft by the Sabres.
Pinho, a sixth round (174th overall) selection in the 2013 NHL Draft, will be heading to Washington Capitals camp.
Recent NHL draftee Walman, selected 82nd overall by St. Louis on June 28, will attend the Blues’ camp.
Additionally, Hayden Hawkey (Parker, Colo), who is expected to begin his Friar career in 2015-16, will attend Montreal’s camp after being selected in the sixth round (177th overall) by the Canadiens in the 2014 Draft.
Last season, the Friars (22-11-6, 11-7-2 HEA) returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001 and then posted their first NCAA Tournament win since 1991, a 4-0 first round blanking of Quinnipiac (March 28). The Friars also made a third-consecutive Hockey East Semifinal appearance for the first time in program history.
The Friars will open their 2014-15 season on Friday, Oct. 10 and Saturday, Oct. 11 at Ohio State. Tickets for the 2014-15 season can be purchased by calling the Providence College ticket office at 401-865-GOPC.
