When Ryan Fitzgerald got the call that he was invited to Boston Bruins development camp for a second straight year, he didn't have to worry about a long commute.

Fitzgerald, a Boston College sophomore and 2013 Bruins draft pick, calls North Reading his home.

On Wednesday, he was just down the road in Wilmington, participating in development camp at Ristuccia Arena for a second straight summer.

Development camps serves as a way for prospects to get some professional reps with the coaching staff, and for players who are already NHL eligible, it can serve as a means to getting a look at a training camp invitation.

Bruins development camp runs through the weekend in Wilmington, and sessions are open to the public. For a complete schedule, click here. And to see Fitzgerald's reaction to last year's development camp, read this story from North Reading Patch.
