I just got back from the Flyers 2011 Prospect Camp in Voorhees. I must say, not a lot happened. Just the usual drills and occasional Homer sightings.
OH! How could I forget? Lappy and Derian Hatcher were running drills (epic).
Also, a couple of notes from the drills.
- Petr Placek is an absolute animal. The kid is a hustler in every sense of the word and he's huge.
Matt Read was very patient in drills and took his time to make sure he performed all of the moves correctly.
Sean Couturier is going to be great. Right now he's a bit raw in his skating, but with refinement, he'll be a star for sure.
Brayden Schenn performed well in stick handling drills. He needs to work on his skating a bit, but other than that, he's good to go.
- In the beginning of the video, you'll hear me say how HUGE Tom Sestito is. I don't think you can imagine the massiveness of this dude.
- Erik Gustafsson is NHL-ready.
I took a ton of video and photos with my iPhone so I apologize for the crappy quality in advance. Here you go.
Jason Akeson - C - Kitchener (OHL)
Brayden Schenn - C - From LA Kings
Sean Couturier - C - Drummondville (QMJHL)
