Follow-up of intrigues
A different night, different looks: On Thursday afternoon, head coach Rod Brind’Amour said the roster scheduled for tonight (listed below) will be “a great group of young guys.” Jamieson Rees and Jack Drury are two young players who did a good job of showing off on Tuesday, now we will have a chance to see who else can make the most of this opportunity. Maybe it will be another brilliant night for Rees and / or Drury. Or, maybe another of the prospects will catch the eye.
Green light for Jarvis: After sharing the news of a young roster, the head coach went on to share that Seth jarvis has the green light. The club’s 2020 first-round pick struggled with an injury at camp, but appears to be hours away from playing in his first NHL action, whatever it is. A skillful and scoring right-hander, Jarvis possesses the ability to play both center and wing.
Good Housekeeping: Despite the victory of two exhibition goals on Tuesday, all was not rosy in the eyes of Brind’Amour. After the competition, when selecting an area in which he would like to see his team perform better, he indicated that it was necessary to get out of the defensive zone more quickly.
“There were a few chances that we gave up where we had the puck in our own camp and then it didn’t come out when it was on our sticks. It’s an old cliché, but it has to come out. It leads to something. it leads to something and a guy who blocks a shot shouldn’t have to. “
Understandable after allowing 37 shots.
Expected list (groups sorted in alphabetical order):
Forward: David Cotton, Jack Drury, Seth Jarvis, Josh leivo, Jordan martinook, Stefan Noesen, André Poturalski, Jamieson Rees, Spencer smallman, CJ Smith, Derek stepan, Ryan suzuki
