Alex Kim ends a long travel day by scoring the game-winner for the Edinburgh Capitals.
Bill and Lee Sweatt ready themselves for the Canucks’ exhibition schedule. Lee Sweatt, pictured left in this file photo, was featured by the Province newspaper, addressing his desire to mimic Detroit’s Brian Rafalski. Must sound good to the Canucks fans. It looks like the Sweatt brothers will be traveling together on the Canucks’ split squads during the exhibition season.
Mike Testwuide gets good reviews from the previously reported Caps prospects game. The idea he will play a year in the AHL seems likely. Some seasoning in the pros rarely hurts and he needs ice time to get better, like anyone his age would.
Brandon Straub is at the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage’s training camp.
Nate Prosser passed an important test during the Wild’s scrimmages, including a couple challenges from agitator Nick Schultz according to Michael Russo’s blog:
“For the last few years, Schultz has gone head-to-head with Petr Kalus, but they’re now teammates in training camp, so Kalus is taking out his normal Schultz aggression on Nate Prosser,who by the way is having none of it. Prosser stood up to the intense Czech in both the last two days, which impressed me bigtime.”
That should be no surprise to Tigers fans.
And finally, Brett Sterling is getting a lot of well-deserved attention as evident by this video of media interviews at the Penguins’ camp. There’s been a lot of talk about him making the NHL roster this season.
