News from the NHL camps

Continuing his effort to land a spot on the Rangers' opening roster, Matt Gilroy spoke with the media (video) about his first pro training camp. The Daily Free Press reports on his early success in exhibition games.

John McCarthy, who has been in the San Jose Sharks training camp, will begin his first pro season much closer to home with the Shark's affiliate in Worcester, Mass. He's one of five Bay State natives on the AHL club's roster.

Another former Terrier captain, Sean Sulivan, returns to the Coyotes' AHL club, the San Antonio Rampage, where he played last season.

A pair of Terriers from the North Shore, Jason Lawrence and Brian McGuirk, are on the roster of the Bruins' affiliate in Providence. Lawrence had been an invitee to the Bruins' training camp. McGuirk previously was Blue Jackets property and had skated for Syracuse last season.

The Boston Globe's Kevin Dupont reports that if Chris Bourque doesn't make the Washington Caps' roster out of training camp, he likely will be traded.

Looking ahead
2010 recruit Charlie Coyle had a six point night (3g, 3a) in the South Shore Kings' 8-1 win against Capital District Selects.
