Wild Development Camp Day 6
The Wild Development camp is finally over after six thrilling days. The 42 players will go back to their homes and play for the teams they had been playing for before the camp started. The two camp teams tied 5-5 and the Green team won the scrimmage in a shootout. Houston Aeros coach Mike Torchetti had this to say about the players at the camp, "[The players] showed really great poise and overall the talent that is going to be coming through the system is really good."
Regarding Mikael Granlund (pictured), a top prospect for the Wild, Torchetti had nothing but praise for the kid "His patience with the puck is everything," Torchetti said. "He slows the game down on his entries. He is very poised. He sees the ice. He knows when to move it, when to let it go. And when you play with players like that, it gives you more poise, especially four-on-four. You don't just want to dump it in. You want to hold onto the puck."
That's what I love to hear! Let's go Wild!
