Just one day after the end of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, the Tampa Bay Lightning revealed the roster and schedule of their annual 2022 Development Camp. It’s scheduled to open on Monday at TGH Ice Plex, official practice facility of the Lightning. The 3-on-3 tournament will be hosted on Wednesday and Thursday, the on-ice part of the camp is open to public. It will be also the first development camp since 2019, as it was cancelled in two previous years due to COVID-19 precautionary safety measures.
Five out six Tampa Bay prospects, selected during this year’s draft, including first-rounder Isaac Howard will participate in this development camp alongside other top prospects such as Max Cajkovic, Dylan Duke and Gage Goncalves. Amongst participated players is also Grant Mishmash, who was acquired in Ryan McDonagh’s trade last week.
The Lightning also invited several players to the camp, amongst them is Belarusian player Ilya Usau, who signed an entry-level contract with the team last spring, and 22-year-old forward Shawn Element, who already played for the Syracuse Crunch and the Orlando Solar Bears last season. 21-year-old defenseman Tyson Feist, who recently signed with the Crunch, is also on the list.
Between completely new names are Jacob Bengtsson, a Swedish defender, who spent two previous seasons in NCAA, and Latvian goaltender Gustavs Davis Grigals, who is one of three invitee goaltenders on this development camp roster.
Prospects Sammy Walker and Cole Guttman are not on the list and will test free agency as it was already announced by Julien BriseBois. Here are training camp numbers for some players:
