Development Camp Update: Renney Reviews Week Two

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers


With the second week of Rangers Development Camp in the books, Head Coach and Vice President of Player Development Tom Renney checks in with an update from Calgary, Alberta.

__________

The New York Rangers Prospect Development Camp has completed its second week, with the addition of Zdenek Bahensky and Jakob Petruzalek to the group, two recent draft picks from the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Tomas Pacina has suggested that the overall skill of our group this year, and especially the ability to grasp the challenge of pushing themselves to improve, is the best in three years .

The players continued with the on-ice portion of the camp, under the direction of Hartford Head Coach Ryan McGill, who like his assistant, Nick Fotiu (during the first week), put the players through drills that tested them in almost every manner.

We have implemented a 3-on-3 competition on Saturdays, under the direction of Rangers Assistant Coach Perry Pern. This is a very demanding concept on the players as it is intense, fast, and certainly tests their intstincts.

All in all, the Camp continues to function smoothly and the Olympic Oval at the University of Calgary is a venue that is second to none.

Approximately 200 high performance winter athletes from around the world use this venue every day, and it has been a tremendous benefit to our players to be surrounded by this pursuit of excellence by others on a daily basis.
