At the Red Wings’ summer development camp, Team Lindsay beat Team Howe 5-4 in a shootout to capture the Red vs. White game, and the Red Wings have already archived the game on YouTube:
Otto Kivenmaki scored the shootout winner, and there was one bit of bad news as Robert Mastrosimone broke his ankle blocking a shot. He’ll be out for 4-6 weeks.
The players were already packing up and heading out of the rink to catch their flights home, so we didn’t get many player interviews on the last day of camp, as is traditional.
However: Red Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff spoke at length with the media–after coaching Team Howe in the scrimmage–and Horcoff discussed the performances of about a dozen players, his impressions of the camp as a week’s worth of knowledge with which to enhance players’ personal development, his incredibly busy summer and more:
Defenseman Moritz Seider, who was superb during the scrimmage, spoke with the media as well, discussing what he learned over the course of the past week, the fact that he loves to carry the puck and score goals as much as anyone, his hope that wherever he plays this upcoming season–be it in Grand Rapids, Mannheim or Owen Sound–the Wings find the right fit for him, and he said that the North American ice was not too difficult to adjust to:
Joe Veleno scored the game-tying goal for Team Howe, and Veleno discussed the past week from a learning perspective, his status as staying in Detroit to work out with the Wings’ players this summer, his hopes that he can strut his stuff this fall and whether he’ll be playing with a chip on his shoulder during the prospect tournament:
Finally, big goaltender Keith Petruzzelli gave an interview in which he briefly discussed rebounding from a shaky 3-on-3 game with a fine scrimmage performance, his status as finally being in what will probably be a starting goaltender’s position this fall with Quinnipiac, and whether any particular shooters or defensemen stood out to him:
Update: The Wings posted video of the interviews with Seider…
