Brady Stonehouse invited to Avalanche Development Camp

Although he went undrafted in this year’s NHL Draft, one team took notice of Brady Stonehouse.

The five-foot-nine, 182-pound forward, who turns 18 on August 6, notched 18 goals, 17 assists and 52 penalty minutes in 68 games this past season with the Ottawa 67s as a rookie in the Ontario Hockey League.

That earned Stonehouse, ranked 152nd among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s final draft, has been invited by the Stanley Cup-winning Colorado Avalanche to their Development Camp.

Colorado only had two draft picks in this year’s draft, so this serves as a rare opportunity to impress the team’s staff this week, including Joe Sakic and Chris MacFarland, who were both promoted into new roles on Monday, and head coach Jared Bednar, who became the first coach to win the current ECHL, AHL, and NHL trophies (Kelly, Calder, and Stanley Cup)

Stonehouse’s tenacious, hardcore play and imperturbable calm could make him a future NHL fan favorite.

The Avalanche released their Development Camp roster on Monday.
