The Phoenix Coyotes future, as far as whether or not they will stay in Glendale, still remains up in the air.  The team at least has a few positive things to look forward to this summer.  One of them being the development camp that is set for July for Coyotes prospects and any other players they decide to invite.  The Phoenix development camp runs from Jul. 8 through Jul. 12.

One such player being invited is Josh Currie, former captain of the P.E.I. Rockets of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).  Phoenix is one of five NHL teams who have shown interest in Currie and given him an invitation to their development camp.  This year Currie, who was a finalist for the league MVP, tallied 104 points (49G, 55A) ranking him third in QMJHL behind Ben Duffy and Jonathan Drouin.  He is hopeful one of the development camps will lead to an NHL contract as he told Jason Malloy of The Guardian:

“My goal is to go down there and hopefully win them over and get a contract. That’s the only way I am thinking. I don’t want to put any doubts in my mind. It’s a big opportunity, so I want to make the most out of it when I go down there.”
