So, we are on summer break, and currently in the middle of the final event of the off season before everything truly winds down. Yes, arbitration hearings will happen, Dumba will sign, but other than that there isn't much until the World Cup and preseason begin. So, enjoy a few observations from our very own @Dlukenelson who has been watching the Wild's prospect camp.
Tuch and Eriksson Ek were clearly standouts.— Dustin Nelson (@dlukenelson) July 13, 2016
I also thought Carson Soucy looked good. Very good skater. Did well in battles.— Dustin Nelson (@dlukenelson) July 13, 2016
Gustav Bouramman also stood out in the first group at camp today. He's a very good skater.— Dustin Nelson (@dlukenelson) July 13, 2016
Joel Eriksson Ek's shot is pretty great. Good release. It's just camp, but he's fun to watch.— Dustin Nelson (@dlukenelson) July 13, 2016
Adam Vay just made what be the best save I've ever seen at Wild Development Camp. Ridiculous dive.— Dustin Nelson (@dlukenelson) July 13, 2016
Please enjoy this intermission music.
