The eighth annual BioSteel Camp will soon begin. The event is a week-long training program where several dozen NHL superstars, prospects, and role players ready themselves in Toronto for their upcoming NHL training camps. BioSteel holds the sessions near the end of August each year and it includes three days of intense training followed by a single day tournament.
