When asked to identify players who stood out in the first two on-ice workouts, Maloney listed defenseman Brandon Gormley and forwards Henrik Samuelsson, Jordan Martinook, Ethan Werek, Lucas Lessio, Brendan Shinnimin and Samuel “Hunter” Fejes.

“Hunter Fejes has caught all of our eyes with his speed and the compete level that he’s had,” Maloney said of the team’s sixth-round selection in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Regarding Shinnimin, the undrafted WHL Player of the Year last season, Maloney said:

“With Brendan, all it takes is five minutes watching practice and you’ll pick him out because he’s the most competitive player in every drill… He’s on the puck hard and he really is fun to watch.”

He added, “Don’t bet against this kid. He’s got this internal drive to succeed… He’s a great asset for our organization to have.”
