Wrapping Up in Voorhees

October 4, 2012

Bob Rotruck is reporting from Voorhees, NJ during Phantoms training camp.


Wow, time really flies. Feels like we just started. But now it is pretty much time to start packing up and get ready to get outta here.

The Phantoms have a couple more morning skates while also making some tough roster decisions. Also on the slate are a couple of scrimmages away from the Skate Zone that have yet to be officially announced. But we will be there with all the details when they happen.

The players leave Voorhees on Sunday. Right now, there are still 39 players remaining in camp. By the time we get to Glens Falls, I'm guessing that will be down to 22 or so. Definitely a lot of tough decisions in there. And an almost certain bet is that some of the guys who were with the Phantoms last year and WOULD be with the Phantoms this year will end up having to be sent down to Trenton of the ECHL. All part of the chain-reaction game of the NHL sending so many players to their AHL teams to begin this year.

The Phantoms aren't alone in that regard. Most of the AHL teams are getting NHL talent. And ECHL teams are all getting pretty overloaded with some really good AHL-caliber players too.

Had some more videos today. A couple of drills and also a couple of interviews. Ian Laperriere is the new Director of Player Development for the Philadelphia Flyers and is excited at the amount of talent his team has. Cullen Eddy returns to the Phantoms for his third season. But it's his first season with an NHL contract. He had been on an AHL contract before. That's a big credit to him and what he's done with his game and it's obvious the Flyers like the path he is on.
