Mitchell invited to Wild Prospect Camp

I've been meaning to put together info on the various NHL Prospect Development Camps, but haven't had the time.

I figured it was worth mentioning though that "Big" John Mitchell has been invited to the Minnesota Wild's camp, along w/ 2008 recruit Chris Hickey.

Pretty cool to see "Big" John getting some NHL attention. He made huge strides this past season. If he makes similar strides next season, it could very well be his last in the Cardinal and White. It was rumored he was drawing attention from a few NHL teams to sign as an undrafted free agent, but Coach Eaves and "Big" John both agreed another season at UW was in his best interest.
