Training Camp Notes: September 21st

Curtis Glencross (LW), CGY – Once cast-away from Edmonton, Glencross has finally found a home in Calgary. He tallied 1 goal and 3 helpers while playing on the top line last night. At this point the left-wing position on the top line in Calgary is not set as Glencross, Bourque and Dawes fight to play with Iginla and Jokinen. Keep an eye out for the winner.

Martin Havlat (RW), MIN – Havlat played in his first game as a member of the Wild and it couldn’t have been sweeter. Playing against a weaker Blackhawks pre-seaoson team, Havlat still scored 2 goals and led his team to a shutout victory. Havlat still possesses magnificent skills and will average a point per game.

Jordan Eberle (C), EDM – The energetic 19 year old has been playing lights out since the beginning of training camp. His smallish size has made him a speedy offensive weapon that fits the Edmonton style of play. Held pointless, he has been arguably one of the top Oilers thus far in camp, out-playing some of the ‘skilled’ veterans.

Calvin De Haan (D), NYI – One of the surprises of June's draft, the Isles picked De Haan much higher then many scouts anticipated. So far in training camp, De Haan has looked poised but still green around the collar. The young d-man is an offensive threat and will one day be a top guy on the Islanders blueline. Keep an eye on him in long term keeper leagues as he would be the perfect compliment to Streit on that powerplay.
