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.
