Development Camp 2009 is winding down and according to Director of Hockey Operations and Player Development Don Sweeney
it was a success.
"I thought we had a really good week," he said. "I think the kids really came in and worked hard.
"No slight against the second year, but I think the first year we had a lot of guys that we had a familiarity with and this camp had a little bit of that as well."
Annnnnnnd it's done.
Off to the locker room.
Found on Habsinsideout.com where Mike Boone is covering Montreal's Dev Camp:
3-2 after two

Subban scored and wee David Desharnais got one.
I missed the other goal because I was on Facebook.
Honesty is often funny.
Cam Neely is on the ice. The second session of the morning (and last on-ice practice of Dev Camp 2009) has started!
That looked like another for Lawrence. Nice camp, Jason. The black team wins.
and Jordan Caron
are consistently thisclose
to connecting for a goal.
...But Jason Lawrence scored his second in two days to put the black up 2-1.
and Michael Hutchinson
both made excellent stops to preserve the tie...
After a fine defensive play, Jamie Arniel
scored the first goal of the game with a top-shelf-over-the-blocker-breakaway shot on Matt Dalton. That put the white team up 1-0. The black team scored right away to tie the game 1-1.
A beautiful goal by Ben Sexton
, who tucked it short side on the goalie during a 2-on-2 drill, is the first highlight of the day.
"Lines" look the same...
No change in "The Lines"...
Sexton, Goggin, MacDermid (Orange)

The young B's (no longer new) are back on the ice for their last day at Ristuccia.
For some players (Joe Colborne, Tommy Cross
) this might be their last appearance before Dev Camp 2010. Others (Jeff LoVecchio, Zach Hamill
) will be here in September.
All of them will have plenty to talk about when they head home to their families and friends for the remainder of the summer.
