Traverse City tourney dates

The Thrashers send a group of prospects virtually every year to the Traverse City Prospects Tournament, hosted by the Detroit Red Wings in Traverse City, Michigan. The dates and teams for the 2008 tourney are now available.

The prospect tournament, which is scheduled for Sept. 13 to 17, will feature entries from the Atlanta Thrashers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues.

NHL training camps usually start a couple days later. From this we can see that camps will start almost a full week later this year.

In addition to great hockey, September is wonderful in the Traverse City area, great winery tours, restaurants, downtown boutique shopping and of course beaches, sand dunes and forests. A good resource for what to do and where to stay is

Yeah, those great beaches!

I've been to the tournament several years in a row, and let me tell you, don't come expecting to hang out on the beach unless the weather is way above average. Mid-September in Traverse City the last few years have been cool and rainy.
