Pens Prospect Camp

Coffeytalk went to the Penguins Prospect Conditioning Camp and came back with these photos.

You can view all of her photos here on Flickr.

A few quotes from camp after the jump.

“I am a defensive defenseman, but I can jump up once in a while, move the puck. Freshman year, you’re physically OK to be there, but you’re not physically ready to dominate. Last year, I felt it was a lot easier to be there. Mistakes came minimally to me.”

Brian Strait

“This is a great organization.. I’m very happy to end up here…
I’m very excited to prove myself and make a good first impression… Every time you jump on the ice you want to be the best. You try to be your best. I’m just going to work and learn from all the guys here on how to be a pro. I’m going to have some fun.”

Simon Despres

“[The Penguins] have to develop within because of the salary cap. They’ve drafted well, and they have a lot of money invested in the core, so they have to have draft picks and prospects step in.”

Luca Caputi

The camp runs until Sunday July 26th at the IceoPlex at Southpointe.
