Panthers Hold Pre Rookie Development Camp

May 28, 2008 - By

The NHL and AHL are yet to crown a champion and the Florida Panthers have already started looking forward to the future. An annual pre rookie development camp is being held this week at the Teen Ranch in New Caledon, Ontario Canada.

The Florida Panthers have invited Lachlan MacIntosh from the University of New Brunswick, based on what we can find he is the player with the highest potential.

Right winger Lachlan MacIntosh, who had 227 points for Woodstock in three seasons (2003-2006), will be a special invitee by the Florida Panthers to its annual Teen Ranch pre-rookie development camp set for the May 26 weekend in New Caledon, Ontario.

The 22-year-old from Perth-Andover said last week he’s excited, and looking forward, to the opportunity to show his skills for the Panthers.

“It’s been a bit surreal,” said the University of New Brunswick skater, who stands 5′ 11” and weighs 184 pounds. “I’ve been told it’s the main pre-camp before the big rookie camp the Panthers hold every year. I will be going there to show them what type of player I am, to show my skills, and my physical game. Coach Tatarnic has always had a great impact on my career and I’m hoping to use what I learned from him, and being a Slammer, at camp.”

“Lachlan was a pure offensive player when I first arrived in Woodstock, but he worked on becoming an all-around player, and that has continued during his time at UNB under Gardner MacDougall and the V-Red program Tatarnic said. “He’s one of the most talented players I have ever coached for the Slammers and he was one of the best players at the CIS Nationals this year. He’ll do great. Either way, he’s someone who I know will also work on finishing his degree no matter what happens.”

We’ll share more information as it becomes available.
