    Set to take place this Monday through Friday, the Bruins will open Warrior Ice Arena up to the public for every session, while the participants will also partake in one of three community events on Wednesday, July 13.

    This year’s roster features 36 players, including 20 forwards, 12 defensemen, and four goaltenders. The roster includes 30 players within the Bruins organization and six players who will attend on an invite basis.

    Joseph Abate: Signed to an AHL-only contract in April, the 6-foot-1 left wing is turning pro after a collegiate career that included 12 goals and 32 points in 85 games for the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

    Johnny Beecher: Boston’s first-round pick in 2019, Beecher turned pro this past spring after three years at Michigan, and tallied three goals and three assists in 11 total games (nine regular season and two postseason games) with the P-Bruins to close out his 2021-22. Beecher is certainly a name to watch, as he could be a player that sneaks his way onto the NHL roster with the Bruins looking for some more jump and energy from their bottom-six forward grouping in 2022-23.

    Riley Duran: A sixth-round pick in 2020, the Woburn, Mass. native put up 10 goals and 19 points in 38 games for Providence College last year, which was good for sixth-most among all Friar skaters.

    Jamie Engelbert (camp invite): Another Providence College forward, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Engelbert is coming off the best season of his collegiate career, with seven goals and 18 points in 38 games. The Whitby, Ont. native has totaled 12 goals and 24 points, along with 66 minutes in penalties, in 80 games at PC over three seasons.

    Riese Gaber (camp invite): Fans of dazzling skill will want to keep an eye on this invite. North Dakota’s leading scorer last year with 37 points in 34 games, the 5-foot-8 Gaber reports to Warrior Ice Arena with 26 goals and 58 points in 63 career NCAA contests, and tallied 56 goals and 105 points in 108 games for the USHL’s Dubuque Fighting Saints before that.

    Andre Gasseau: One of the Black and Gold’s seventh-round selections in 2021, Gasseau put up a team-leading 22 goals in 60 games for the USHL’s Fargo Force this past season, while his 38 points ranked third among Force skaters. Gasseau, whose father James was a draft pick of the Sabres back in 1984, will report to Boston College in the fall.

    Brett Harrison: The 18-year-old Harrison scored 27 goals a d61 points in 65 games for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League a year ago. Harrison, a center drafted with the No. 85 overall pick in 2021, is definitely one of the organization’s more interesting prospects to watch moving forward.

    Oskar Jellvik: Has P.J. Axelsson done it again? Boston’s fifth-round pick in 2021, Jellvik is coming off a 2021-22 that included 26 goals and 55 points in 41 games for Djurgardens’ junior squad in Sweden.

    Trevor Kuntar: The 89th overall pick from 2020, Kuntar put up nine goals and 20 points in 36 games for Boston College last season. Kuntar, who was originally committed to Harvard but switched to Boston College when Harvard went to online-only and canceled their athletics slate for all of 2020-21 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has made that move to BC work, with 15 goals and 30 points in 59 games as an underclassmen with the Eagles.

    Dans Locmelis: Drafted with the No. 119 overall pick in last week’s draft, the Latvian-born Locmelis put up 18 goals and 34 points in 44 games for Lulea HF’s junior program in Sweden last year. He’s one of 40 Latvian-born players to be drafted into the NHL, and he is the fifth Latvian talent to be drafted by the Bruins (and the first since Martins Karsums).

    Matias Mantykivi: A sixth-round choice in 2019, the 20-year-old Mantykivi’s fourth year of playing pro hockey in Finland was certainly has best, with 12 goals and 31 points in 51 games for Ilves Tampere in 2021-22. Talking to people, there’s a bit of hype around this 21-year-old (which for a sixth-round pick is always intriguing), so it’ll be interesting to see if the Bruins try to keep him in North America in 2022-23.

    Marc McLaughlin: A late-season signing out of Boston College, the Billerica, Mass. kid certainly did what he could to take advantage of his Boston chance, with three goals, along with 15 hits and two blocks, in 11 NHL contests. He’s another player who could challenge for an NHL spot out of the game in 2022-23, especially with his ability to play both center and wing.

    Georgi Merkulov: NCAA free agent signing Georgii Merkulov could be a potential dark horse for this team in 2022-23. Signed out of Ohio State, Merkulov recorded a team-leading 20 goals and 34 points in 36 games for the Buckeyes, and added one goal and five points in an eight-game run with the P-Bruins to end the season.

    Quinn Olson: The No. 92 overall pick from 2019 is coming off a 2021-22 that included a team-leading 19 assists for the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. The 5-foot-11 wing has put up 16 goals and 51 points in 101 games at UMD since 2019.

    Tyler Paquette (camp invite): Another invite, Paquette’s 11 goals in 2021-22 were fourth-most among all Penn State skaters. Like most of Boston’s camp invites up front, Paquette has size to his name at 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds.

    Matthew Poitras: The B’s top pick from the 2022 NHL Draft, Poitras put up 21 goals and 50 points in 68 games with the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League this past season. The Brooklin, Ont. native’s 50 points were the third-most among all Storm skaters, and were the seventh-most among all rookie OHL skaters. The 5-foot-11, 174-pound center says that he tries to model his game after Lightning centers Brayden Point and Anthony Cirelli. Greasiness will never be a worry.

    Porter Schachle (camp invite): Standing at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, the Alaska native put up three goals and six points in 27 games for the University of Vermont last year. Prior to that, Schachle recorded 35 goals, 76 points, and 422 minutes in penalties in 117 NAHL games.

    Jake Schmaltz: The B’s seventh-round selection in 2019, Schmaltz put up eight goals and 24 points in 39 games at the University of North Dakota this past season.

    Cole Spicer: Selected with the No. 117 overall pick, Spicer is coming off a 2021-22 spent with the U.S. National Development Team, with 10 goals and 16 points in 26 games played. The 5-foot-10 skater also put up three goals and five points in six games at the U-18 World Juniors. He’s committed to Minnesota-Duluth for 2022.

    Luke Toporowski: Inked to a two-year AHL contract last month, the 21-year-old Toporowski is turning pro after a lengthy WHL career that included 96 goals and 199 points in 245 games between Spokane and Kamloops.

    Frédéric Brunet: A 6-foot-2 defender, Brunet was drafted with the No. 132 overall pick last week after a breakout season featuring 12 goals and 46 points in 63 games played QMJHL Rimouski Oceanic. His 46 points made him 11th-highest scoring defenseman in the The Q, while his 18 power-play assists were the sixth-most among all defenders in the league.

    Mike Callahan: Acquired from the Coyotes last February, the 22-year-old Callahan jumped to the pro ranks at the conclusion of his college season and appearance in 15 games with the P-Bruins to wrap up his 2022. Callahan is a Franklin, Mass. native, and served as the captain of Providence College before turning pro.

    Jackson Edward: No, not the NESN play-by-play announcer, but Boston’s 2022 seventh-round selection standing at 6-foot-2 and 194 pounds. A Bruins fan growing up (Edward cites Zdeno Chara and Brad Marchand as two of his favorite players), Edward tallied six helpers in 54 games for the OHL’s London Knights in 2021-22. There’s bite to his game.

    Ty Gallagher: Drafted in the seventh round in 2021, the Michigan-born Gallagher is coming off a strong start on Comm Ave, with five goals and 16 points in 35 games as a freshman for Boston University last season.

    Grant Gabriele: Signed to an AHL deal last March, the 6-foot-2 Gabriele appeared in two games for the P-Bruins on amateur tryout to close out his 2021-22 after a college career that featured 13 goals and 50 points in 124 games with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

    J.D. Greenway: The 6-foot-5 defenseman appeared in 26 games for ECHL Maine and 16 games for AHL Providence in 2021-22.

    William Worge Kreu (camp invite): The lone invite on the backend, the 22-year-old ‘WWG’ stands at 6-foot-5, and appeared in 47 games for Sweden’s Oskarshamn IK in 2021-22, with one goal and six points. The Sabres were Worge Kreu’s first team, drafting him a seventh-round selection in 2018.

    Mason Langenbrunner: The 6-foot-3 Langenbrunner, who is the son of B’s director of player development/player personnel advisor Jamie Langenbrunner, put up two goals and 22 points in 61 games with USHL Fargo in 2021-22. Langenbrunner is committed to Ted Donato’s Harvard University program, and will report there this fall.

    Mason Lohrei: The understanding is that Mason Lohrei, who had a monster year for Ohio State in 2021-22, will be in attendance but will not be on the ice as he continues to recover from a recent knee operation.

    Ryan Mast: Boston’s sixth-round pick from the 2021 NHL Draft, the 6-foot-5 Mast tallied nine goals and 31 points in 59 games with the OHL’s Sarnia Sting this past season. It was an eight-goal and 20-point jump from his 2019-20 campaign.

    Dustyn McFaul: The No. 181 overall pick from 2018, the 21-year-old McFaul has played the last three years at Clarkson University, with three goals and 12 points, along with a plus-12 rating, in 84 games played.

    Jacob Wilson: Signed to an AHL deal back in March, the 25-year-old made two appearances with the P-Bruins last season after what was a five-year career at Arizona State University. At ASU, the right-shot Wilson tallied nine goals and 44 points in 150 games, and wore the ‘C’ for the Sun Devils in 2021-22.

    Brandon Bussi: Signed out of Western Michigan University last spring, Bussi has started his pro career off on a positive, as he recorded three wins and posted a .920 save percentage in five games with the P-Bruins. 

    Gabriel Carriere (camp invite): The lone invite in net, the 22-year-old has spent the last two years at the University of Vermont, where he’s posted a 6-19-2 record and .909 save percentage.

    Reid Dyck: Selected with the No. 183 overall pick, the 6-foot-3 Dyck went 6-12-1 with an .884 save percentage and 4.26 goals against average in 23 games for the Swift Current Broncos last season.
