We'll never know which team reigns supreme at the 2010 Wild Development Camp. After Team Green rallied for a 5-4 win in Saturday's contest, Team White exacted revenge on the strength of superb goaltending by German hero, Dennis Endras
White's 3-1 victory came in front of a crowd that filled an entire side of the Xcel Energy Center's lower level.
Team White jumped to an early lead when Bemidji State's Matt Read poked home a loose puck in front of Green goaltender, Johan Gustafsson
. Brandon Buck padded the lead by punching in a rebound after Gustafsson robbed Dylen McKinlay from in tight.
From there, the first half was Endras show. He made breakaway stops on Johan Larsson
, J.T. Barnett and Jason Zucker
. He also came up with huge saves on Joel Broda
, and twice on Fridley native, Jarod Palmer
The first half ended with White leading, 2-0, and the camps for both Endras and Gustafsson came to a close.
Late in the second half, Team Green cut the lead in half. Palmer, who had an outstanding game, fired a wrist shot through traffic. Matt Hackett
made the save, but the rebound popped high in the air and was gloved down by Cody Almond
, who fired it home.
But Eden Prairie's Chad Rau
ended the game with an empty netter in the final minute.
That was the end of the legitimate scoring, but fans were treated to a full squad shootout to close the end of Development Camp. The players will now head their separate ways, but Wild.com will continue to have more prospect features throughout next week.
