Brown; Oiler bound
Kelowna Rockets goaltender Adam Brown is off to an NHL training camp next month.
The 20 year-old has been invited to attend the rookie camp of the Edmonton Oilers.
Undrafted, Brown will join the Oilers for the prospects tournament in Penticton next month (September 11-15) against rookies from the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks.
Brown is excited about the opportunity to show that he belongs.
Brown is expected to be one of three - 20 year-olds on the Rockets roster this season along with Cody Chikie and Kevin Smith.
Mitchell Callahan is eligible to return but will likely play pro hockey in the Detroit Red Wings organization.
