When he begins his senior year at Canisius, Tony Capobianco will have a great answer to the question, "What did you do on your summer vacation?"

The goaltender was invited to participate in the Minnesota Wild Development camp this week.

Capobianco was named the most valuable player for the Golden Griffins after leading the team to the Atlantic Hockey Tournament Championship and the program's first ever NCAA tournament bid. He set four school records during the season -- saves (1,256), save percentage (.929), wins (18) and shutouts (four).

Capobianco is one of seven collegiate players invited to the Wild's development camp at the Xcel Energy Center. The camp, which includes 36 players, focuses on developing the organization's top prospect.

Back in 2008, Canisius forward Vincent Scarsella participated in development camp with the Buffalo Sabres.
