Brant Harris

Brant Harris is set to attend an NHL team's development camp for the second straight year.
Last summer, it was the Washington Capitals. This year, it's the San Jose Sharks.
Harris, an Estevan native and former Bruin, is one of 44 players to be invited to the Sharks' annual development camp this week.
Most NHL teams hold a camp each July to offer an NHL introduction to its recent draft picks and a smattering of junior and college free agents.
Harris is one of those free agents looking to land a pro contract.
After impressing at the Capitals' camp last summer, Harris returned to the University of Connecticut for his junior year, captaining the Huskies and posting 15 goals and 31 points in 37 games.
Harris was tied for second in UConn scoring.
The 23-year-old forward played three seasons in the SJHL, two with the Bruins and one with the Melfort Mustangs. He posted 104 points in 147 games during his junior career.
Other players invited to the Sharks' camp are forwards Gabryel Boudreau, Riley Brace, Mark Cooper, Chris Crane, Petter Emanuelsson, Cody Ferriero, Max Gaede, Curt Gogol, Freddie Hamilton, Eriah Hayes, Tomas Hertl, Jacob Jackson, Sean Kuraly, Christophe Lalancette, James Livingston, Matthew Nieto, Travis Oleksuk, Daniel O'Regan, Tommy O'Regan, Brodie Reid, Lane Scheidl, Rylan Schwartz, Reed Seckel, Sebastian Stalberg, Danill Tarasov, Chris Tierney and Brian Ward; defencemen Konrad Abeltshauser, Sena Acolatse, Gage Ausmus, Adam Comrie, Dylan DeMelo, Taylor Doherty, Isaac MacLeod, Mirco Mueller, Zach Palmquist, Joakim Ryan, Matt Tennyson and Clifford Watson; and goalies J.P. Anderson, Fredrik Bergvik, Troy Grosenick and Steve Racine.
