small report from an other board
'I heard from a person who went to watch, that Berger was the biggest surprise and most impressive on the ice. Skates well, big body, heavy shot. Avtsin was also one of the hardest working. JM said himself that he is impressed with Palushaj and Tinordi. I read that Tinordi is the best looking D man there.. getting in the lanes, blocking shots and playing physical. Mac Bennet , or maybe it was MacMillan..scored 3 breakaway goals..

Now that my thoughts are clear, how about a mini-report.

Avtsin: Easily the best player at camp. Strong on his feet, uses his frame to protect the puck. Possesses a good wrist shot along with a quick release, didn't use his slap shot though. Did not seem to be your typical Russian. Skated hard, went into the corners, played hard along the boards.

Berger: Big player. Didn't see him much, but I liked what I saw. Good shot. Fluid skater for a 6'4 player

Bournival: Disappointed to be honest. Looked invisible. Literally. Nothing worthwhile to note.

Dame-Malka: Looked small out there, the 5'10 given on the development camp roster might have been generous. Showed solid offensive abilities along with a good shot. He's one player I'd like to see more of, perhaps at the next camp in July.

Gallagher: Probably has been said many times but Gallagher is one tough cookie. Never one to back down, drives to the net often and hard. In comparison to others who may have appeared nonchalant, Gallagher is always active, always looking for open space. Possesses a precise shot along with a quick release which he puts to good use by putting the puck in the net.

Kristo: In comparison to previous years, looked much stronger on his skates. Really looks like he put in some solid work at the gym. Even with the extra weight/muscle, did not seem to lose those quick feet of his. I like what he brings offensively. Displays strong offensive awareness. Yesterday, made the little plays right. Hope to see him dominate the NCAA this upcoming season.

Schultz: I really hope I'm wrong, but I don't see him making the big club. Still not much of a strong skater. Was found on his butt quite a few times but do not know if it's for a lack of balance or just his luck yesterday. Shot was terribly inconsistent: capable of a laser beam top corner once in a while but most of the time terribly weak and off the mark. I know he wasn't brought in for his finesse, but you'd at least want to see him bring something else to the table other than his physical play.

Tinordi: One of the solid defensemen at the camp. His huge frame (6'6) literally makes him a man among boys. Not afraid to be physical along the boards and easily scoops the puck away from opposing forwards, who end up butts on the ice. Showed defensive awareness. Offensively, however, again, don't expect him to have the same impact. It's just not him. I don't know if it was only for yesterday, but Tinordi lacked good decision making with the puck, overthinking the play and then ending fumbling the puck or forcing a pass, when he had simpler options available.

Thanks Wtfpinneaple!

Nice to hear that Avtsin is working hard out there hopefully he'll break out this year in the Ahl. Same for Tinordi after some of the reports I've seen here its good to hear that he looks good out there and I hope he trains hard this summer and has a huge year in the Ohl.

Thanks for the report dude as you already know it's much appreciated.

I'm happy Avtsyn looked good and appeared to be working hard. It means he likely isn't going to give up just yet. (Wouldn't blame him if they were still benching him this year though)

Hopefully it's going to be his year!

Thanks WTFPineapple!

I think Bournival is the kind of player that shines in real game situation as he doesn't appear to have lots of skills but just lots of tenacity.

Lacking internet connection at Résidence Soleil must not help either.

Gallagher is starting to remind me of Brian Gionta.

Which is excellent news imo. That means there is still work to be done and progress to be made. When he turns 21,22 years old and starts gaining mass he will become a force not to be wrecking with. I'm crossing my fingers for a mix between Hall Gill and Matt Carkner but a better skater.

I heard Tinordi was terrible with the London Knights this season, so it's good news to hear that he is playing well and working hard at the development camp.

I would cry if that's all he ended up being.
