Avs Rookie Camp Day 3: Viewers Guide & Open Thread

Ben Nelms

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.
