Ducks to Host Development Camp Scrimmage July 4

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks will host their annual prospect development camp scrimmage at THE RINKS – Anaheim ICE on Monday, July 4 at 10 a.m. (doors open at 8:30 a.m. prior to the 8:45 a.m. warmup). Fans and media are invited to attend the open scrimmage session with a $5 suggested donation benefiting the Anaheim Ducks Foundation. The Anaheim Ducks Power Players and Street Team will be on hand throughout the morning with select giveaways and available for photo opportunities.

Anaheim’s top prospects will participate in both on-ice and off-ice workouts at Anaheim ICE throughout the camp, running July 1-4 (only the July 4 scrimmage is open to the public). Four first-round selections are slated to participate in the development camp, including Nick Ritchie (10th overall in 2014), Jacob Larsson (27th overall in 2015), Max Jones (24th overall in 2016) and Sam Steel (30th overall in 2016). All six of Anaheim’s selections from the 2016 NHL Draft will also attend. The aforementioned Jones and Steel will be joined by fellow 2016 draftees Josh Mahura (third round, 85th overall), Jack Kopacka (fourth round, 93rd overall), Alex Dostie (fourth round, 115th overall) and Tyler Soy (seventh round, 205th overall).

The four-day camp focuses on both the on-ice and off-ice development of the organization’s top young prospects. In addition to on-ice skating sessions, each player will participate in strength and conditioning drills that allow coaches and management to closely evaluate the progress of each athlete. Along with daily weight and aerobic training, each player will also receive a personally tailored nutritional recommendation and be tested for strength thresholds, range of movement and aerobic capacity.
