That's no surprise given the fact he was amongst the oldest guys there. In fact, I think he and Czarnick were the oldest, if I'm not mistaken.

Mersch? He's 19 years old. He's amongst the younger prospects.

Edit: Voted Pearson amongst the choices. Add Deslauriers

That quote from GKG was in reference to Deslauriers, not Mersch being one of the oldest in camp along with Czarnik. Deslauriers and Czarnik (and Veyas well) had significantly more pro experience and had played at a higher level than any of the other players in development camp, so it's not really a suprise to see them stand out the most in camp.

Ah, I misunderstood.

Still, off the top of my head, Czarnik, O'Neill, and Dowd are the older prospects. Vey might be as well. I'm pretty sure Weal and Forbort are pretty close in age compared to ND, so it's not like he has a huge age advantage. Between professional experience and international experience (like Gravel and Forbort on the WJC side), I don't think he has a huge advantage either.

However, at camp this month, Deslauriers looked like Martinez and Nolan last year, in terms of physically built, but little visible baby fat. I think he'll turn some heads this year.

Kevin Gravel just turned 20 not too long ago, last year was his 19 year old year. That is not one of the older players, plenty of players at the camp that just finished their 21-22 year with pro experience...

Posted from my phone and going off of faulty memory. Will edit my post. The point remains he has had one year as a pro and very little, if any, International experience, so it's not like he has a great advantage over the rest

Not really true. ND, Vey, and Czarnik (Berube as well but that's ECHL) are the only ones in camp with a full year of AHL pro experience under their belts. The others have all spent only a handful of games in Manchester or none at all and that is a huge advantage when it comes to understanding of the game and especially understanding of the Kings style of play which is something that seemed to be a focus at the dev. camp. So while Vey, and ND may not have an advantage age wise they still have a pretty big advantage over the others that were in camp.

Think of it this way, these are drills that the Monarchs and possibly Kings put players through on a fairly regular basis. So there should be an amount of familiarity, and comfort with these drills for the guys that run through them often versus a player running through it for possibly the first time. Basically I expect these guys to be at the top of class because they are familiar with the drills and the skills on display are something they work on frequently.
