BLOG: Who Eakins liked today

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

Coach Eakins talked about who impressed him on the second on-ice day at training camp.

"We liked Nuge today," he said. "I thought Nuge had a really good day out there. (He was) competing. For me, the best player on the ice."

Eakins also thought that a handful of the off-season acquisitions did well today.

"Nikitin and Fayne were a good pair. We'll keep an eye and see how that goes."

"The one thing we spoke to Anton about last year at the end of the season (is offence). He's shown that he can put up points and make plays at the American Hockey League level. Today, he was making those plays. He stepped out of his comfort zone here. That's hard to do as a player and I thought that was real encouraging."

Lander helped set up a goal by Andrew Ference late in the scrimmage by making a nice play deep in the attacking zone.
