ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club will host its annual summer conditioning camp, July 6-12, 2006. A total of 24 prospects will take part with fans invited to attend the camp's on-ice sessions on July 10, 11 and 12 from 2:50-4:50 p.m. at Anaheim ICE.
The seven-day camp focuses on both on-ice and off-ice development of the organization's top young prospects. In addition to on-ice practice sessions, each player will participate in strength and conditioning drills, which allow coaches and management a chance 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.
"We've made a commitment to our players and fans to have a development system that's among the league's best," said Vice President of Amateur Scouting & Player Development Chuck Fletcher. "This camp is a critical part of that program and an opportunity for these young men to see where they stand in relation to their peer group."
Below is a look at which prospects are scheduled to attend the 2006 conditioning camp.
