MICHIGAN — Theo Hill, the Sarnia Sting forward is preparing for St. Louis’s training camp.
Hill, 20, also spent a lot of hours in the gym getting ready for his final season in the Ontario Hockey League.
He’s coming off a breakthrough season in which he set career-highs with 21 goals and 32 assists in 67 games. He ranked second on the Sting in assists and fourth in goals and points (53).
Those numbers earned him an invitation to the Blues’ prospect camp in July. It was his first NHL camp.
Hill played so well, the Blues want to see him again this month.
He’ll be on the Blues’ roster for the annual NHL Prospect Tournament from Sept. 15 to 19 in Traverse City, Mich.
The six-foot, 175-pound forward learned a lot at the Blues’ prospect camp he hopes will pay off this season.
Last Friday, he scored for Team Black in a 5-4 shootout loss to Team White in the Sting’s annual intra-squad game at Progressive Auto Sales Arena.
