Griffins’ Wade Megan holding a hockey camp in Canton, New York

Grand Rapids Griffins forward Wade Megan hails from upstate New York, and North Country Now reports that Megan and several of his colleagues are holding a hockey camp for kids from July 29 to August 9th in Canton, New York:

Canton natives Wade Megan, Kyle Flanagan and Mark Phalon are preparing once again to bring their advanced hockey knowledge to the young players of the North Country at NoCo Hockey Camp at SUNY Canton beginning July 29.

They each bring knowledge of the game from the professional ranks to share with youth players at the camp. Megan spent 11 games this past season in the National Hockey League with the Detroit Red Wings, while also recording 48 games with Detroit’s American Hockey League affiliate, Grand Rapids.

Megan was recently a guest on the Blue Line Hockey Club, a hockey podcast run by local hockey buffs Pat Sullivan, Derek Hetu, Marc Morley and Rob Peters.

“We have just tried to step it up every year. We try to get better and better,” Megan said on the podcast. “This year is going to be a huge step forward. We really put a lot of time into the practice plan and we really just try to teach some of those skills that maybe you don’t get a chance to work on all the time throughout the season and throughout regular practice time.”
