...On-Ice practices during Rookie Camp will take place beginning at 10 AM on September 13, 14 and 15. All sessions are open to the public and free of charge.
I heard from a friend that was there on Monday that they skated the first hour with Gilbert (Phantoms) doing drills like 1 on 1s, 2 on 1s and 3 on 1s, then did an ice cut. The second they hour worked mostly on positioning and systems.

Wow, to be honest, Testwuide has the face of a football or baseball player. I don't think he looks like a hockey, but I'm sure he's built for it.

Tim P.'s column lists some minutiae:

http://www.csnphilly.com/09/14/10/Ca...600&feedID=704

Quote:
Numbers switch
Nikolai Zherdev and Mike Richards are still not in camp. Interesting that Zherdev has already lost his No. 9 jersey to Bill Guerin, who is here on a tryout. Low numbers often indicate a player’s likelihood of being on the roster.

Zherdev was assigned Petr Nedved’s old No. 93. Zherdev’s locker was moved beside Michael Leighton, while Guerin was assigned his stall near Jeff Carter. Guerin didn’t have a stall last week. Zherdev did, and now it’s been moved. Again, interesting tidbits for a player on a tryout contract. You can book it: Guerin will make this team and force a roster move.

Unveiling
Big day at Flyers Skate Zone on Friday in Voorhees, N.J. First, the team will unveil their new road sweaters at 3 p.m., and then there will be free public skating afterward (4-10 p.m.) to celebrate the facility’s 10th anniversary. The sweaters will be identical to their Winter Classic gear from last season’s game in Boston.

“We are just as excited as the fans are to open training camp and pick up right where we left off last season,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “We are encouraging our fans to join us all weekend long and celebrate the opening of training camp with the Philadelphia Flyers.”

As part of the celebration, there will be free “Learn to Skate” lessons at 6 p.m., followed by “Learn to Play Hockey” at 7 p.m.

Loose pucks
Auditions for the 2010-11 Flyers Ice Team will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Skate Zone in Voorhees. The Flyers are seeking women who can skate and have a passion for the game of hockey. CSN’s Al Morganti and the Daily News’ Frank Seravalli will be among the judges. ... Blair Betts still has not been cleared to take contact but is expected to get that clearance in time for Saturday’s on-ice session.

When I first joined this forum a year ago I thought you were serious with posts like this and I would wonder what planet you were on. Now you are possibly my favorite poster. Great stuff.

Another Bobrovsky article from today: Link

Quote:
The scout was sitting at his desk at Flyers Skate Zone typing notes into his computer.

A reporter turned to leave, when the scout said, “Hey, keep an eye on Bobrovsky. He has a chance to make this roster.”

There’s a world of intrigue surrounding Russian goalie prospect Sergei Bobrovsky, who will turn 22 next week, at this Flyers rookie/prospect camp.

Some years ago, the Flyers, then under Roger Neilson, went to Peterborough, and there was massive hype about whether cocky Jean-Marc Pelletier was the club’s goalie of the future.

Pelletier’s Flyer career lasted slightly longer than a bottle of Chianti in an Italian restaurant.

And Bobrovsky? He doesn’t have Pelletier’s moxy. He’s far more modest.

No one really knows whether the 6-foot-2, 190-pound native of Novokuznetsk, Russia is the real deal. It’s almost impossible to tell with goalies.

And the Flyers have had such a l-o-n-g history of failure to develop their “next No. 1” (since Ron Hextall), the organization is understandably hesitant to gush about a kid who was an absolute gem on a gosh-awful team in the KHL last season.

Awaiting the first scribe to report "locker room turmoil."

The Flyers' site had an article about Richards last week. He said he was eager to get into camp.

I'm not sure when vets are required to be in camp. Most likely they have a different date than rookies and some other players. If he was absent but required by today, it would have been in the lead paragraph.

Exactly! Since low numbers indicate higher probability of being on a roster, then high numbers must indicate lower probability of being on a roster. You heard it here first Guerin replacing Zherdev!

For some reason I didn't complete the quote before. Fixed now.

I just find it odd that a guy on a tryout contract is taking a number from one of our NHL players and taking his locker spot. That isn't usual, is it?

Plus, they literally say at the end of the quote that "You can book it:Guerin will make this team and force a roster move".

Oh it does sound strange, which is why I made fun of it.

Maybe Zherdev's Visa problems are serious?

Actually, forget the sarcasm smiley, that's kind of true.

I would have thought Shooter would have extended an invite to Mike Danton to come to camp. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Zherdev here
Nikolai Zherdev skated early in the morning on his own. It was his first time on the ice as a Flyer. Though he speaks some English and seems to understand it, he declined to do interviews without the presence of a translator.

Slava Kouznetsov, the Phantoms’ skating coach who is acting as a translator for goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, wasn’t available when Zherdev was in the building. Kouznetsov later explained that Zherdev is afraid of misunderstanding something asked of him and answering wrong.

One Flyer veteran said he spoke to Zherdev and had difficulty understanding his English. Zherdev played five years in the NHL, but the Flyers say because he played in Russia last season, he needs a refresher course in English, which is being provided to him, just as it is to Bobrovsky.

Zherdev reportedly was fine doing interviews as a New York Ranger in small groups or one-on-one, though he admitted he never felt perfectly comfortable with expressing himself in English. The group here initially included one reporter from CSNPhilly.com and a reporter from the Courier Post.

Other stuff posted in the article as well, such as Pronger skating and Richards showing up.

English is the hardest language to learn from what I understand and he's a season removed from having to speak any English.

He's just rusty. I would be willing to bet that a lot of Russians never feel totally comfortable speaking English even when they have learned it.

I've heard from others than learning Japanese is unbelievably hard. Mainly because not only do you need to learn over 3000 characters in the Kanji alone, you have to technically also learn Korean and Chinese along with it.

But anyways, it's good that he wants a translator so he doesn't do anything wrong.

Thats how I see it. I think he is making sure that no mater what he says or hears, a translater will make sure he says it right (or hears it right)
