Plymouth, PA – Team USA is getting closer to revealing the lines and announcing the camp cuts. There’s one more practice on Tuesday and a morning session on Wednesday but the camp cuts could come Tuesday evening. Here are some of my best guesses.
Best players in camp:
Matty Beniers (Kraken) and
Plymouth, MI - - Team USA concluded their first day of camp and I walked away with these conclusions.
Ty Smilanic (Panthers) – He was the fastest player in camp and that’s saying something. Who can cover him coming down the ice on the wing? This team has a great roster
Most hockey players are rink rats and love to be around the rink and the sport they love and some go a step beyond that and are gamers, and that’s how I would describe Ty Smilanic, who will definitely get drafted whenever the NHL holds to 2020 NHL Draft.
This is not a mock draft. These are my early rankings and are subject to change as many times as I see fit.
Alexis Lafreniere – LW – Rimouski – QMJHL
Quinton Byfield – C – Sudbury – OHL
Jamie Drysdale – D – Erie Otters – OHL
