Flyers Prospect Camp: Day One Recap

Day one of 2011 Flyers Prospect Camp is finished. See how the young guys did...

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.
