Toews, Barker, Skille To Attend Prospects Camp
CURRENT BLACKHAWKS BRENT SEABROOK, DUNCAN KEITH, RENE BOURQUE AND OTHERS TO PARTICIPATE IN SKATING DRILLS

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks will host their Annual Prospects Camp at the Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville beginning July 5 and running through July 11. Players will arrive in Chicago on the evening of July 4 and will report to the United Center for physicals at 7:30 a.m. the morning of July 5 before taking the ice at 11:30 a.m. at the Edge.

The Blackhawks' 2006 first round selection Jonathan Toews will join former teammates David Bolland, Michael Blunden, Cam Barker and Dan Bertram at this year's camp. Toews, Bolland, Blunden, Barker and Bertram were members of gold medal winning Team Canada at the 2006 World Junior Championships.

Last year's first round selection Jack Skille, who won the national title as a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, will also attend the prospect camp.

Adam Burish, captain of the National Champion Badgers, and Troy Brouwer, the Western Hockey League's top scorer and Bob Clarke Trophy Winner, will also join Skille and other Blackhawks' prospects.

The camp will include on-ice and off-ice sessions, as well as opportunities for the players to get to know the great city of Chicago. On-ice sessions include daily scrimmages and drills with Skating Coach Dan Jansen. All on-ice sessions are open to the public.

Jansen will be returning to the camp with Norfolk Admirals' Head Coach Mike Haviland for the second straight year. Jansen, an Olympic Speed Skating Gold Medalist in the 1994 Winter Games, joined the Blackhawks as their skating coach on August 15, 2005. Jansen was a member of four United States Olympic Teams (1984, 1988, 1992 and 1994) and was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame in 2004.

Haviland led the Admirals to a 43-29-4-4 record and into the AHL playoffs in his first season as head coach.

In addition, players Rene Bourque, Brandon Bochenski, Dustin Byfuglien, Corey Crawford, Colin Fraser, Duncan Keith, Danny Richmond, Brent Seabrook and James Wisniewski will work with Jansen in on-ice sessions.

Bourque, Bochenski, Byfuglien, Crawford, D. Keith, Richmond, Seabrook and Wisniewski all made their Blackhawk debuts last season.

The prospects and professionals players will not participate in scrimmages together.
