While Sean Romeo still has another season of eligibility at Ohio State, the Buckeyes' rising senior goaltender will have a chance to show what he can do in front of NHL coaches this week.

Coming off a strong redshirt junior season in which he earned second-team All-Big Ten honors and was the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Midwest Regional, Romeo has been invited to participate in the Columbus Blue Jackets' annual development camp for prospects this week.

A transfer from Maine, Romeo is coming off his first season as the Buckeyes' goaltender after sitting out the 2016-17 season. Romeo won 22 games in 2017-18, tied for the second-most in a single season in Ohio State history, and allowed only 2.06 goals against average, the third-best mark in Ohio State history.

Romeo isn't the only Buckeye who is set to participate in this week's camp. Carson Meyer, an incoming transfer forward from Miami (Ohio) who the Blue Jackets selected in the sixth round of the 2017 NHL draft, is also on the development camp roster.

Five other current Buckeyes have also been invited to participate in NHL teams' development camps. Rising junior defenseman Wyatt Ege is set to attend the Vegas Golden Knights' development camp for a second consecutive year, while All-American junior forward Tanner Laczynski is attending camp with the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Incoming freshman forward Quinn Preston is attending the Winnipeg Jets' development camp, incoming freshman forward Gustaf Westlund is attending the Florida Panthers' development camp and incoming defenseman Ryan O'Connell is camping with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Blue Jackets' development camp will be held from Monday through Thursday at the OhioHealth Ice Haus, the Blue Jackets' official practice facility at Nationwide Arena, and all on-ice practice sessions are free and open to the public.
