The Jackets schedule is as follows:

Saturday, Sept. 13
3:30 p.m. Minnesota vs. Columbus

Sunday, Sept. 14
6 p.m. Columbus vs. Dallas

Tuesday, Sept. 16
2:30 p.m. Columbus vs. St. Louis


Lots of undrated free agents in the mix - 12 to be exact - but there are exciting young players there as well in Filatov, Voracek, Mayorov, Holden, Ciltsome, Plekhanov and LaCosta. 2008 draft picks Matt Calvert, Steven Delisle and Brent Regner will also be attending. In fact there will be 12 draft picks total.

So 12 picks and 12 undrafted free agents -- sounds about right!

I think the Jackets match up well against the other rosters and for me anyways it will be extremely exciting to see how a guy like Filatov performs at this camp.

For those interested in attending -- according to Google Maps -- its a 429 mile drive (7+ hours) from Columbus OH up to Traverse City MI. Its $5 per day to attend the games.

Hey to see Filatov make his North American debut that just might be worth it.

I really liked what I saw of Mior. I hope he plays well there and finds a home in our system. Goalie's one of those positions where you just can't have too much depth.
