Early Thoughts About Flyers Rookie Camp Day One

Voorhees – – After the early morning sessions, I took some notes on how the guys looked. Many of them haven’t hit the ice in an organized fashion for a few months.

Connor Bunnaman – 6-1, 207 – C – Showing good agility for a bigger guy. The coaches were working on the speed of his release. He had 37 goals last year. Imagine what that extra second could mean in the slot?
Pascal Laberge – 6-1, 182 – C – He had a concussion last season but shows no ill effects. Still had the best hands in his group.
Tanner Laczynski – 6-1, 190 – C – Very smooth skater. His turns are tight.
Carsen Twarynski – 6-2, 201 – LW – Love his long skating stride. Like his shot as well.
Oscar Lindblom –6-1, 192 – LW – Looks like a pro. He stood out. No lost movements in his release. Very strong.
Wade Allison – 6-2, 205 – RW – Skating is ok. His shot is terrific. He has a fast wrist shot. He needed to be more disciplined in the East Regionals last year.
Mike Vecchione – 5-10, 194 – RW – He looks very polished. He was a quick learner. Very smart player.
Cooper Marody – 6-0, 179 – C/RW – He has excellent agility. His shot is pretty accurate.
Isaac Ratcliffe – 6-6, 205 – LW – Stick to puck before shooting could be faster. Imagine how many goals he will score at that point? Good shot accuracy.
Phillipe Myers – 6-5, 209 – D – Looking smooth on his turns and general skating. His backwards skating isn’t perfect. Had some trouble on his left side.
Mark Friedman – 5-10, 191 – D – His skating was really good. Very slick. Very fluid and natural.
Mikhail Vorobyev – 6-2, 207 – C – Tremendous passer. Hard shot. Nice snap to his wrist shot.
Maksim Sushko – 6-0, 179 – RW – Has a nice curl to his wrist shot. Some real subtle technique there.
Ivan Koroshenkov (pictured above) – 6-0, 181 – RW – Very fast release. Fast with the puck. He trains in the mountains so his stamina is excellent. I’d sign him if it were up to me.
Matthew Strome – 6-3, 201 – LW – Pretty accurate shot but can work on his hand speed.
Morgan Frost – 5-11, 172 – C/LW – His wrist shot accuracy isn’t his strength. There’s room for improvement there and that’s good. You always want there to be more upside.
