More Badgers @ NHL development camps

We've already talked a bit about Derek Stepan @ the Rangers development camp and Troy Hesketh @ the Oilers development camp. So today I got curious about other development camps which Badgers/future Badgers might be attending. Unfortunately, it appears that most teams don't provide as much coverage of the camps as the Oilers do (or at least not that I could find), but at least I have basic links, dates, and players.

(If anyone has any good links to coverage of these events, please post them in the comments section or send me an email. Thanks!)

June 29 - July 3
- New York Rangers - Derek Stepan (HF)
- Columbus Blue Jackets - Cody Goloubef

July 6-10
- Edmonton Oilers - Troy Hesketh (Tencer, Millard/Flaming, oilersTV)

July 6 -12

- Montreal Canadiens - Patrick Johnson
- Nashville Predators - Blake Geoffrion (Tennesseen), Craig Smith

July 7- 12

* I can't figure out when the Carolina Hurricanes development camp is. As a rookie, Jamie McBain would be there, wouldn't he?

* I also can't figure out when the Anaheim Ducks development camp is. The Ducks hold the rights to Jake Gardiner and Justin Schultz.

* Ryan McDonagh's rights, of course, are now held by the Rangers, but they didn't obtain his rights until after the camp was underway, so no camp for McD this year. (His rights were previously held by the Canadiens, and their camp is underway this week.)

* Podge Turnbull's rights are held by the LA Kings , but I don't see him on the roster for their camp (July 10-12).
