Home stretch for the rookies today as their camp wraps up, barring catastrophic ice failure of course. Yesterday brought more intensity and focus upon systems, with any luck we'll see a short scrimmage today but I'm not holding my breath.
As usual, the MHH crew will be at the rink dropping knowledge on twitter and we'll have AJ's wrap-up later in the day and some more excellent video from Dario.
- I have a feeling we will see a few cuts after today. Not many, but with such a huge contingent and only 2 days of Pro Camp it doesn't make much sense to have 60 guys on the rink. Intensity could be quite high for the borderline crowd.
- Julien Nantel has been sent back to Rouyn-Noranda already because of injury. Total bummer, kid scores a lovely goal to start the season, then gets hurt and can't participate in Rookie Camp.

- Alexis Pepin is also injured but made a short appearance yesterday before the contact drills started. He's still far away from being ready to play, but I like that he got a chance to skate with the team for a few minutes anyway.

That's all for now. Tomorrow is an off day for physicals and whatnot and Pro Camp starts at 9:45 MT on Friday.
