Mark McNeill had a scary start to the day. He took a shot off of his leg (couldn’t tell if it was his ankle or higher up on his leg). He had to be helped off of the ice by two trainers, but he returned around 5 minutes later and continued to participate in drills like nothing had happened.

Among other things, McNeill displayed his good hockey sense for all to see during drills. Phillip Danault also continued to be his normal self on the ice. His work ethic and intensity always shine through when he is on the ice. Robin Norell, Travis Brown and Anthony Louis showed off their wheels today. Louis also dazzled with his stick-handling as well. Pat Mullane displayed his abilities with his good shot and good speed. 6-foot-2, 175 pound defenseman Dillon Fournier wheeled around nice and smoothly during drills that combined stick-handling and skating around cones.

John Hayden continued to impress in his first Prospect Camp as he drove hard to the net and utilized his speed and good hands to his advantage. Boston native Chris Calnan looked very solid today. His presence was more noticeable on the ice, along with his great shot and speed. The same goes for Stephen Johns. He continued to play his physical game whenever the opportunity presented itself and he was good defensively. For what it’s worth, all of the goalies looked solid in net today.

Camp continues tomorrow with the first scrimmage of the week at 11:30 a.m. after Team A practices at 10:00 a.m. I’ll have updates again on Twitter.
