Saginaw's Underwood invited to Blues camp

Saginaw Spirit defenseman and Canton native Joe Underwood has been invited to attend the St. Louis Blues development camp as a free agent starting today.

“We are excited for Joe and the opportunity he has been given,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards. “We wish him the best of luck in camp.”

Underwood, 18, was picked up through a trade with the Guelph Storm last season. He notched seven assists last year, including five in 38 games with the Spirit.

Joining Underwood at camp are fellow OHLers James Livingston (Sault Ste. Marie), Anthony Nigro (Guelph), Vladimir Nikiforov (Sarnia), Anthony Peluso (Erie), Mark Cundari (Windsor) and Tony Dehart (London). All but Livingston are free agents.
