Countdown to main camp; Hexy add-on size in Pittsburgh

Lehigh Valley Phantoms instructor Ian Laperriere just finished guiding the pilots through rookie camp. These 26 potential players will now try to make an impression during the team’s main camp, which begins with activities on the snow Thursday in Voorhees.

For veterans, it’s a chance to start a year of redemption.

As for prospects, it’s time to take a step up into the NHL, though some of them (hello, Noah Cates) could be with the big squad when main camp is over.

Labe’s message

After the junior camp ended on Sunday, Laperriere sent a message to the players.

“I told them the same thing I said to them when I first met them: Don’t try to be someone you’re not into, especially with the main camp.” He said.

“If you’re a physical player, be physical,” Labrier said. “If you are a skilled player, show them your skills.”

He wants players to be themselves, and not try to convince officers to get out of their comfort zone.

He said, “Do what brought you here.”

The pilots are expected to release the camp schedule on Monday or Tuesday. It is free and open to the public.

As for the novice camp, Laperriere said he loved the strides the prospects had made. They went 2-0 against the rookie New York Rangers, but were outdone in a strange 5-1 win as New York dominated play.

Nervousness dissipated

“I’m satisfied with the progress,” Labrier said. “The first few days I saw the kids were nervous. I get it. I was there as a player, and I see him every year. I’ve been here for 13 years and I see it.”

He said, “I like to improve. They are getting better every day, asking the right questions. They seem to like each other, and in four or five days it’s great to see them.”

In the 5-1 win, in which Samuel Ersson starred in the net, “they ran out of gas, but they kept pushing and waiting for the right opportunities,” said Laperriere, whose team excelled, 37-15.

The odds are led by the left wing Keats, She will continue to press in the main camp on Thursday. Two nights later, the Flyers will play an exhibition match against Visit Boston.

Yes, the NHL jumps right into the fray, which is great for the fans.
