Blackhawk prospects will get a jump on training camp when they compete in the Toronto Maple Leafs rookie tournament beginning Sept. 11 in Toronto.
The Hawks will send a team made up of three first round picks including forwards Kyle Beach and Philippe Paradis along with defenseman Nick Leddy. Top prospects Shawn Lalonde, Igor Makarov, and Jeremy Morin will also participate.
The squad will play three games over the course of four days against prospects from Toronto, Ottawa, and Pittsburgh.
Bill Peters, the head coach of the Rockford Ice Hogs, and his staff, will coach the prospects in Toronto.
