Kelowna Rockets General Manager Bruce Hamilton says the teams first pick in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft this summer won't attend training camp next month.
Latvian Zemgus Girgensons was selected by the Rockets 54th overall.
Hamilton told me Girgensons' family has been convinced that he should remain in the USHL with Dubuque this season until the NHL draft is over.
Hamilton says the Rockets second round pick, Philip Vasko, is expected to arrive in Kelowna a week from today.
