Day 5: Best moments of the 3 on 3 Tournament

News, Notes, Quotes as prospects show off their skills to end camp

by @NHLFlyers

In the fifth annual 3 on 3 tournament to end summer's Development Camp it was Team Clarke, who took a 4-1 win over Team Barber in the championship game.

The team consisted of forward prospects Joel Farabee, Isaac Ratcliffe, Maksim Sushko and Marcus Westfalt; defensemen Wyatt Kalynuk, David Bernhardt and Jack St. Ivany, with goaltender Felix Sandstrom winning the dual with Carter Hart in the final.

The five goaltenders in the camp rotated among the three teams such that each played two games in the tournament. Sandstrom was the only goaltender to go a perfect 2-0, allowing the fewest amount of goals (4), while Hart allowed the second fewest, going 1-1, with seven goals-against.

HART: "We got a lot of repetition in and new stuff. There's things that will translate into my game next year and I think will have a positive impact. Over the summer I just have to keep working on it and get a lot of repetition in before it just becomes instinctual. I think this week we accomplished a lot."

Team Clarke actually started on the losing end of things in the round robin, dropping its first two games to come back and win the whole thing.

Isaac Ratcliffe posted two goals in the semifinal game and doubled down on that by added another two goals in the championship game.

RATCLIFFE: "The first couple games we started off a little low and try to feel it out a little bit. You kind of saw us there. We went 0-2 in the first two and then we started to pick it up in the second half. It's not how you start, I guess it's how you finish. Once you get towards the end, you really bring out the competitive side out of everyone. That's when we started to pick it up and starting putting them to the net."

* Second round pick in 2016, Pascal Laberge, led all skaters with five goals in the tournament… 14th overall pick in last week's draft, Joel Farabee, had four goals, including two tallies in the 2 vs. 3 playoff game to reach the final.

FARABEE: "I think in a few years 180, 185 [pounds] will probably be the end goal but I'm just trying to put on as much good weight as I can, not try and get too big so I can't move out there. Just be big enough to be effective. .. I think working on playing down low, that will help move on to the next level." 

* Defenseman James de Haas (Team Ashbee), who played 36 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms last season, posted four goals in a single game during the tournament - A 7-3 win over Team Clarke.

* Flyers fans packed the rink to watch the latest crop of prospects and the players on the ice took notice. 

RATCLIFFE: "It's unbelievable. On a Monday afternoon, I think it's unbelievable the fan base that Philly has here. We got a taste of that in the rookie game at the Wells Fargo as well too. It's going to be crazy no matter where you are. You walk outside and there's some fans waiting just for a picture. It's pretty awesome some of the dedication that they have to the Flyers and they just want to see us have some success as well."
