Day One - Camp Scrimmages

The players attending training camp were put through the ringer Thursday as the four teams went through a number of drills that gave the coaching staff their first look at the current roster players, prospects and camp invites. According to Head Coach Drake Berehowsky’s twitter account Friday morning, he commented “yesterday was the easy day.”

It’s a new era and a new way of thinking and Friday, fans got their first chance to see what Berehowsky and his coaching staff (Brad Lukowich, Mike Craig and Jeff Battah) have in store for the upcoming season. Each scrimmage started off with more drills and then it was game on.

Team Green ‘A’ vs. Team White ‘B’ – FINAL SCORE:  2-1 Team Green
It was a quick pace to start the day, but it was Team White with the pressure early on. Despite that it was Team Green getting on board first as Barrett Sheen opened up the scoring while Spencer Galbraith added his first assist of the game. Both Sheen and Galbraith would register 2 points each in the game as Team Green wins a close one 2-1.

In the second scrimmage of the day, getting physical seemed to be the order of the day – at least to start the 1st period. The majority of the early pressure came from Team Red but after 30 minutes the teams were tied at a goal apiece.
