There were no Kelowna Rockets taken at this year’s NHL Draft but that doesn’t mean they won’t be represented when NHL development camps open this week.
A total of six Kelowna Rockets will be attending NHL camps this week, including three Rockets players who went undrafted in the 2022 NHL Draft and a fourth player who is now a free agent.
Netminder Talyn Boyko will be attending the New York Rangers camp and forward Colton Dach who was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks last year will be attending the Blackhawks camp.
Three other Rockets players who went undrafted this year have also earned invites to camps.
Forward Max Graham will attend the Calgary Flames camp, defenceman Noah Dorey is attending the Edmonton Oilers camp and goaltender Jari Kykkanen will take part in the Florida Panthers camp.
Defenceman Jake Lee, who aged out of the Western Hockey League after this past season, also earned himself an invite to the Flames development camp as a free agent. The 20-year-old, who turns 21 this week, currently does not have a contract anywhere for the upcoming season.
