After being passed over in the 2012 NHL Draft, despite being ranked 48th among North American skaters, Thamesville, Ontario’s Dane Fox will still get a crack at an NHL camp this summer as the New York Rangers have invited the prospect to their annual rookie camp.

Following the draft, the Erie Otters announced that Fox had been invited to the New York Rangers camp. Fox had a strong offensive season which he split between the OHL’s London Knights and the Erie Otters.

After being traded to Erie, Fox led the team in scoring collecting 22 goals and 27 assists in 56 games.

Fox also played in the NHL/CHL Top Prospects game in British Columbia this season.

Fox is spending his offseason training in Toronto with Gary Roberts, one of the world’s top trainers for professional hockey players and top prospects.

The Rangers fell to the New Jersey Devils in the Eastern Conference final this spring. After going undrafted last season, Fox’s former minor hockey teammate Seth Griffith of Wallaceburg, was selected in the 5th round of the NHL draft Saturday, 131st overall by the Boston Bruins.

Blenheim’s Kyle Hope, who played for the Owen Sound Attack last season will also be attending the New York Rangers rookie camp. Hope was also a teammate of Fox and Griffith’s with the Chatham-Kent Cyclones ‘AAA’ team.
