Dell and Kristo at the Habs development camp

Go Habs Go!
The Habs are having their development camp and you will see some familiar names on the Hab’s development camp roster. Fighting Sioux fans don't need to worry because Danny Kristo has said that he will return to UND for his senior season. Aaron Dell is said to not be coming back and will be signing a professional contract this summer - as of right now - Dell has to make his intentions know or has yet to sign a professional contract.

GOALIES

Here are a few observations from the first day of the Habs development camp from All Habs.

There was confirmation of things we already knew:
  • Daniel Pribyl and Alexander Avtsin are magicians with the puck.
  • Danny Kristo has explosive acceleration.
  • Nathan Beaulieu is very smooth.
  • Brendan Gallagher‘s switch goes ‘ON’ the moment his skates touch the ice.
And there were a few initial impressions that we will keep our eyes on:
  • Patrick Holland may be a better skater than advertised.
  • Darren Dietz looks much more confident this year.
  • Aaron Dell turned heads with his goaltending at least year’s camp but may be challenged this year by Brandon Maxwell.
  • Cody Reichard looked competent in goal with a good glove hand despite his try-out status.
  • If this team had a captain, it would be Jarred Tinordi, hands down. Solid leadership qualities.
The group of missing players included Collin Sullivan, Peter Delmas, Morgan Ellis and Dustin Walsh.  They did not participate in Wednesday’s practise.
