Why are these notable? Aren't they all still attending NCAA schools? If they were to receive any assistance from the team to attend the camp, they would lose their NCAA eligibility.

Dustin Walsh, who's also an NCAA player is attending for some other reasons, from what I've heard its a) well off family and B) a school scholarship to go to a camp.

Walsh goes to Dartmouth College and they have a later start date than the other colleges,he and Joe Stejskal both attended last year due to Dartmouth's later start.All the other player's the Habs have in college are already in classes.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Etienne Brodeur can do. He's so talented.

The Habs certainly have some good prospects vying for positions at LW.Archambault,Berger,Bishop,Bournival,Brodeur,Lefebvre and Masse.Berger seems to be the one most physically ready for the rigors in the pros.The competition can only be good news for the Bulldogs and the Habs in the near future.
