Zac Rinaldo could end up being an under the radar competitor to join Philadelphia's roster following training camp.
"He is going to [have an impact] for sure," said assistant coach Craig Berube. "He really wants to play - and that's important. Everyone wants to play, but there's some guys that really push the envelope to force their way onto the roster. He could be one of those guys." His strength and fitness work over the summer was also praised by head coach Peter Laviolette after Rinaldo showed up for rookie camp last year out of shape. He could land a spot on the team as a fourth-liner at a cheap price of $544,000 and bring some physicality to the lineup. Rinaldo amassed a whopping 331 penalty minutes and nine points in 60 games with the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms last season.
