LINK CITY: Write ups on dev camp, NHL players in Sochi

If you want some write ups on dev camp for whatever reason…

— The Pensnation has some good stuff from day 1. [ tpn ]

Tristan Jarry was fundamentally sound on the posts, squaring up to the shot and quick on his five hole. Had a little trouble with going side-to-side on many occasions.

— Highland Park Hockey also some good stuff. [ HP ]

I was intrigued to see goaltender Eric Hartzell today and after watching him today, a few things stuck out about him. First off, Hartzell is big. At 6-4, he towers in the net and is just simply a big body in the net. Bill Guerin might have ripped a shot off the crossbar and in past him today, but you could see the poise of Hartzell while facing shots from his fellow Pens prospects. Hartzell was particularly impressive in the practice-ending shootout.

— Highly reccomend following @IanAltenbaugh who will be at camp all week. 

NHL players will be in Sochi

According to The Score...

The 2014 Winter Olympics will run from February 7th, 2014 to February 23rd and will likely put the NHL season on hold for the duration

Pens will have a considerable stake in the roster for several teams. Dan Bylsma will also be coaching the United States.
