Ex-Cap, ex-Isle called to NHL camps

Two hockey players who spent at least part of their junior careers in the Cowichan Valley are among more than 50 current or former B.C. Hockey League players attending NHL development camps this summer. Connor LaCouvee, who played 20 games in net for the Cowichan Valley Capitals in 2012/13 before moving on to the Merritt Centennials and then the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, where he earned a scholarship to Boston University, was invited to the camps of both the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers. LaCouvee, 21, has not been drafted by an NHL team.

Left wing Evan Campbell, who played junior B hockey for the Kerry Park Islanders in 2010/11, collecting 36 points in 41 games before making the jump to junior A with the Coquitlam Express and Langley Rivermen the following year, was invited to the Edmonton Oilers development camp. Campbell, who also made one appearance with the Caps in 2010/11, was drafted by the Oilers in 2013 and has played the last two seasons with the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
