Scrimmage: Fasth scores twice in 8-3 win

The White prospect team whipped the Blues today in the frist scrimmage of camp. G Scott Stajcer surrendered five goals in the first period of 20-minute running time. Two periods, not three, for these games. 

Another one tomorrow, 11:30.

My three stars: Jesper Fasth (two goals, assist), Dylan McIlrath (goal, assist),  Christian Thomas (goal, assist). Could make case for Carl Hagelin (who missed wide stick side with a penalty shot) in there, and perhaps Shane McColgan, who was buzzing. Pashnin, like last year, hit anybody nearby, and was gassed near the end of his shifts. Big D Samuel Noreau struggled.  Again, all this waaaaaaaay early to determine anything.

Rapid box score....

Victor Kamensky with first goal of camp from right side, 1-0

Andrew Yogan 2-0

Fasth 3-0

McIlrath, 4-0

Oscar Lindberg 4-1

Shane McColgan 5-1

Fasth 6-1

Tommy Grant from Hagelin 7-1

Thomas PS  7-2

Fasth to McDougall  8-2

Ryan Bourque from Thomas 8-3


Cam Hope, the team's capologist, told me he is leaving the organization July 1.  Hope, a bright and amiable attorney, said he really enjoyed the people in the organization and the industry. He and his wife remain be in Manhattan for a bit, then have no definite plans. Both have family in Canada. "You only live once," he said.
