Development Camp Updates


Stanislav Galiev has posted the fourth entry his blog on the Washington Capitals website.

Now we’re going to play paintball. We played paintball last year and it was really fun. We played Team USA against Team World and the players from Europe and Canada were on a team together. I hope it’s not as hot as it was last year. I think everyone lost five or six pounds just sweating so much, it was so hot out. But, I think it’s going to be a fun day.
It was Day Four at Capitals Development Camp and it featured the second scrimmage. After losing the first scrimmage yesterday, Team White got some revenge today by defeating Team Red 4-3 in a shootout.

Here is Galiev speaking to the media:

The Washington Times had an article today on the Sea Dogs’ Russian forward making the move to North America.

“It was pretty hard for me first time ‘cause I didn’t speak English, I miss my family, and it was tough couple months. But after I started playing good and my English is a little bit coming every day,” he said. “My first year in the [Quebec Major Junior Hockey League] was pretty good for me, and this one was — I’m not nervous. I feel like I’m at home.”
Both Group A and B will practice tomorrow. The final scrimmage of camp will be held on Saturday.

It was Day Three of Development Camp for Jonathan Huberdeau and the rest of the Florida Panthers prospects.

Via the Panthers website, here are some highlights from the on-ice action:

From the Panthers blog ‘Litter Box Cats’:

Jonathan Huberdeau made an impression after a slow first day at camp. His passes were spot on and he was excellent at setting up scoring chances drawing the defender on to him and passing it to the other forward for a shot.
The final on-ice session will be held tomorrow.


Not a whole lot ofcoverage from Pittsburgh Penguins Development Camp this year which is a little bit surprising. The camp features Simon Despres, Nick Petersen, and Alex Grant.

The Pens will hold a scrimmage on Saturday at the CONSOL Energy Center.

Minnesota Wild camp continues. According to the Wild’s Twitter, some on-ice stuff went down today along with a round of paintball.

Sea Dogs forward Zack Phillips is in attendance.

There will be scrimmages on both Saturday and Sunday at the Xcel Energy Center.

There has been basically no coverage of Detroit Red Wings Development Camp. Tomas Jurco is the only Sea Dogs taking part.

The camp came to a close today according to this article.

At New Jersey Devils camp, The Star Ledger reports that they held yet another scrimmage. Sea Dogs defenseman Eric Gelinas suited up for Team White. It was tied 4-4 after three periods but Team White would pull it off in a shootout.
