Your Habs Development Camp and Draft Coverage


by Amy,

PHILADELPHIA, PA — With the L.A. Kings hoisting the Stanley Cup earlier this week, so marks the end of the 2011-12 hockey season.  But fear not fellow devoted hockey fans, there’s no need to start the “Is it October yet?” chants just yet!  Keep your browser pointed to and you’ll find a veritable plethora of information headed your way all summer long regarding the Canadiens development camps, the NHL Awards, the All Habs Media Awards, and the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and corresponding All Habs Draft Hockey Party.

Let’s talk a bit about the development camps and entry draft.  At All Habs, our coverage of these two major summer events is as comprehensive as the news and reviews we provide you all throughout the regular season.  Why?  It’s simple: development camps, prospects, and the draft are all the future of the Habs organization and vital to its evolution and progress (not to mention they’re an exciting kickoff to the upcoming hockey season).

Year after year we provide reliable, in-depth daily coverage of development camp at the Brossard Sports Complex.  Multiple All Habs team members provide updates and news on-location from Brossard, and others have spent the past few months gearing our readers up for these events through regular series like “Christmas in June” and “Who’s This Guy?”  We don’t view prospects as a “summer-only” topic!

So be sure to check back daily for reports or subscribe to an email capsule so you won’t miss anything.  If you are on Twitter monitor the hashtag #allhabs — it will help you be plugged into the latest information.

Also make sure that you are following @All_Habs and the newest member of the team @DailyCanadiens. They’ll be glad to respond to your questions live from Brossard.

Next up we’ve got team coverage of the 2012 NHL Awards at our inaugural All Habs On Location event! Wednesday, June 20th the All Habs crew will set up shop at McLean’s Pub in Montreal to live-blog the award ceremony during the broadcast from Las Vegas.  This red carpet event will also feature the announcement of the 2012 All Habs Media Award winners, an annual award given to members of local and national mainstream and new media outlets.  Winners are decided by you, our readers, so be sure to cast your vote today!

Just two days later, on Friday, June 22nd, the All Habs crew returns to McLean’s for the 4th Annual All Habs NHL Entry Draft Hockey Party!  There’s so much to tell you about this year’s hockey party that we’ve written an entirely separate post about it – so be sure to check it out today and RSVP to reserve your free VIP pass to Montreal’s premier draft party!

The team at All Habs is pumped up to bring you all of this and more this summer!  So catch the fever and make your daily dose of Habs hockey.  To get you started, check out the draft preview video below edited by All Habs video editor Sara!
