In ten days, about 24 of the Blackhawks top prospects will arrive in Oshawa, Ontario to compete in the annual Toronto Maple Leafs Rookie Invitational Tournament.
The Leafs, Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins will participate in the four-day, round-robin points-based tournament. The same four competed against one another last September when the exhibition was staged in London, Ontario. Chicago has been invited for the second consecutive year, having replaced the Boston Bruins, the only change in the foursome since 2009.
Toronto announced its roster way back on August 9. Ottawa and Pittsburgh did so on Tuesday. Click the links to preview their squads….
