Time flies

by Nicklas Jensen / Vancouver Canucks

The week went by so quickly and the tournament is already over. It feels like we just got into Vancouver and Penticton but this part of camp is now finished. I think we still have meetings with the coaches but that’s about it.

Everything has been really good, a lot of fun, and a lot of hard work. I’ve really enjoyed the week and my first NHL camp experience. I’ve never been part of a tournament like Young Stars and I only have good things to say about how good it is.

I’m not happy that we lost this last game but overall, I think the team played well together this week. We didn’t have a lot of time to get to know each other but I think we got very close quickly and were able to do really well together as a team. It was fun playing with the guys.

They haven’t told us yet who’s going to main camp but I’m really hoping I will. I think it’ll be great to get to go but it will be a lot of hard work, of course. Its been such a short time since I just got off the ice so I haven’t had too much time to think about it but there will be NHL stars at camp and if I go, I really look forward to getting to skate with them because I can learn so much from them. Obviously, Jannik will be there so I’ll have someone I can speak Danish to but I know most of the guys on the team so it will be great, I’m sure.

The best part of camp was definitely playing the games – that’s what I’m here for. All the players are so talented and so skilled that it was really nice to be part of that as well. I’m glad I got a chance to play with everyone and see the different players that were involved in Penticton.

Now moving forward, I’m just trying to improve on everything. I really want to improve on my defensive play because obviously, I’m an offensive guy – that’s my strength. I really want to focus on my defensive game too so I can become a more well-rounded player but I want to improve on everything that I can all the time.

Finally, I want to say thanks for all the support out here, it’s really been great writing for the website this week. I hope you liked reading it and that I did okay. Thank you again and I can’t wait to see everyone again.
