813Area has new update 1 hour ago Quick Strikes: Nolan gets his Foote wet in today’s 2019 Lightning development camp
Can’t stop won’t stop. The Bolts and Prospects The Tampa Bay Lightning development camp begins TODAY and we’ve got you with a roster. This year, the 3-on-3 tournaments will be streamed, meaning we can watch these kids play shinny in real time! It’s one last gasp of hockey before the long summer months, and I hope everyone who watches enjoys it. Tampa Bay Lightning announce 2019 Development Camp roster [Us folk] The five-day camp will take place at the Brandon Ice Sports Forum and will include on-ice and off-ice training and drills for the players. Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th will primarily include a 3v3 tournament that will be free and open to the public. The tournament will also be streamed on the team’s website. These games are a great opportunity for kids and fans of all ages to see some high-level hockey so spaces fill up fast. You’ll note that a certain kid brother of a Bolts player will attend camp. Nolan Foote is still basking in the joy of getting to play in his brother’s system, or so he said in this article — 2019 NHL Draft Recap with BC Tree Fruits: Talent begins to blossom as 28 WHL players selected [WHL.ca] “We’ve mentioned it, playing junior together,” Nolan said of the two ending up with the same NHL team. “We thought it’d be cool, but now it’s real and I can’t wait to celebrate with him.” Foote’s season in Kelowna saw him led the team with 36 goals while finishing in a tie for second in team scoring. Foote also rose from NHL Central Scouting’s Final Ranking in April to June’s draft. Ranked 37th among North American skaters in April, Foote found himself a part of the elite talent taken in the first round. And we’ve got a profile of Younger Foote too — Tampa Bay Lightning 2019 NHL Draft Profiles: Nolan Foote joins his brother Cal as a Bolt [Us folk] To summarize what we read from all the scouting services, Foote is a player with some good tools but some obvious flaws. To start, most scouts don’t like his skating. He doesn’t have good top-end speed and he’s not particularly quick in small spaces. With the speed at which the game is played now, Foote will have to improve in that area to be able to make use of the rest of his tools. My mascara smudged a bit for this one — Mishkin’s Musings: On pets, hockey, and goodbyes [Tampa Bay Lightning] Second, the Lightning’s mission statement includes the phrase “connecting the community through the power of Lightning hockey”. Doc and I connected through the animals, but also through hockey. He loved hockey and he loved the Lightning. Carol told me that during a break in his treatment, he took her to a game in February (she was down from Pennsylvania to help when he was diagnosed). “The section where he sat was like a family,” she said. “They were all so happy to see him!” ...So here’s something light-hearted as an antidote: For the win!@domingue35 and @yannigourde face off for the best in our final @tecopeoplesgas Home Cooking Challenge ?? pic.twitter.com/TeSZK28MGi— Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) June 24, 2019 Congrats to Josh Chapman for graduating to the AHL! May the Griffins enjoy him. NEWS: Solar Bears head athletic trainer Josh Chapman has accepted a position in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins! https://t.co/zrfEx6rZEk— Orlando Solar Bears (@OrlandoHockey) June 24, 2019 Syracuse Crunch’s Kevin Lynch OKs offer from Tampa Bay [Syracuse.com] Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois said on Monday that the organization and Lynch have agreed to a tryout deal that will bring Lynch to the team’s preseason camp in September. From there, BriseBois can evaluate whether Lynch has fully recovered from a string of groin injuries that cost him all of last season. Syracuse Crunch sign forward Peter Abbandonato [More from Us Folk, with no photo this time because it’s hard to find a picture of this guy!] Abbandonato did not show enough in his draft season and went undrafted in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. He followed up his rookie season with 19 goals and 56 points in 64 games and 14 more points in the playoffs. Once again, he went undrafted. Going back to Rouyn-Noranda - and now wearing an A on his jersey - he put up 27 goals and 48 assists for 75 points in 58 games. He added another nine points in seven playoff games. Has Tampa Bay mined another free-agent star for Syracuse Crunch? [Syracuse.com] Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois praised Abbandonato’s shot and playmaking skills, as evidenced by his assists totals. “I know people like to put them all in the same category, but they are all different,” BriseBois said of the forward diamonds in the rough. “I like Peter’s game as built around hockey sense and compete (level), and in that area he might be comparable to ABB. I want Peter to come in and forge his own identity.” The Game Who makes the 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame class? [ESPN] 25-1: Dan Boyle, defenseman (first year), Patrik Elias, forward (first year), Vincent Lecavalier, center (first year) He had 949 points, including 421 goals, putting him 16th in goals-per-game average during his career. He won the goal-scoring title in 2006-07 with 52 tallies, as well as the Stanley Cup in 2004. A star player, and a consistent one, but a first-ballot Hall of Famer he is not. This was a necessary article — The Good, The Bad, and The Plaid: Draft Day Fashion Debrief [Japer’s Rink] Now, let me just list out some names for you: Henrik Lundqvist, PK Subban, David Pastrnak, Mat Barzal. All of these men match strong performances on the ice with exceptional fits off the ice. Mat Barzal’s velvet suit on draft day was the kind of risk we expect from a Calder winner (though I still hate the skinny tie). The #Blackhawks have acquired defenseman Calvin de Haan and forward Aleksi Saarela from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for goaltender Anton Forsberg and defenseman Gustav Forsling.— Chicago Blackhawks (@NHLBlackhawks) June 24, 2019 The PHWA has elected @frank_seravalli as the organization's new president: https://t.co/a7ATeduOFS— PHWA (@ThePHWA) June 24, 2019 It’s official! ?? more years for @Sanheim17! https://t.co/amyieAtfPA— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) June 24, 2019 These poor ECHL players are going to die of exhaustion — Annual ECHL Board of Governors Meeting Decides Stuff [ECHL] The Board approved extending the length of overtime during the regular season from five minutes to seven minutes. Overtime will continue to be contested as “sudden death” in a 3-on-3 format. If neither team scores during the overtime period, the game will proceed to a shootout. Last but not least (much like this guy), this article is well worth reading — After waiting for two days and over 200 picks, the jubilation of finally hearing your name called at the NHL Draft [The Athletic] “Awful,” Dustin’s mother, Michelle Wolf, said when asked about how the day had unfolded. “Awful until the end because it wasn’t looking like it was happening. But somebody had to take a chance on a goalie that’s not 6-foot-4. And he’s going to beat everybody that’s out there. I promise you.”
813Area has new update 11 hours ago Arizona State and Ohio State transfer Darius Slade Enrolled at USF
The long awaited answer has finally arrived. In even more class of 2019 news, Ohio State, and most recently, Arizona State transfer defensive end Darius Slade is enrolled at the University of South Florida, according to Nathan Bond of The Daily Stampede. SLIGHTLY bigger news: unless there’s someone with the exact same name,Arizona State and Ohio State transfer defensive end Darius Slade is enrolled at #USF.Big boost for the defensive line.— Nathan Bond (@BullsNathanSBN) June 24, 2019 Slade initially enrolled at Ohio State in 2014, and was a hot three-star recruit coming out of Montclair, New Jersey. After taking a redshirt in 2014, Slade got onto the field in seven games for Ohio State in the 2015 season but did not record anything on the stat sheet. Slade was a part of the 2015 National Championship team for the Buckeyes. The following year, Slade sustained a lower leg injury in fall camp that sidelined him for the entire 2016 season. Slade then transferred to Arizona State, a school he initially committed to in 2013, where he had to sit out the 2017 season due to transfer rules. That 2017 season saw him as the co-defensive MVP for the scout team for the Sun Devils. Last season, Slade finally saw the field and some success at defensive end, registering eight tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a forced fumble recover and recovery. His forced fumble and recovery was a monstrous play, showcasing his pass rushing ability. #2 6'5 257 Darius Slade looks like Jadeveon Clowney out here tossing humans pic.twitter.com/m9xtFBUqzJ— Kyle (@marblekyle) September 2, 2018 Unfortunately, during the middle stretch of the 2018 season, Slade once again was injured and kept him sidelined most of the season. Slade will be able to provide some much needed depth and experience to the defensive line. As noted in the defensive line preview for the upcoming USF football season, USF was sorely missing someone to provide third down pass rush, but with Slades’ motor and power, it looks like we may have found a suitable answer. Slade received a waiver for a sixth year from the NCAA in December and is immediately eligible to play. #PlayFastScoreFaster
813Area has new update 11 hours ago USF Football Class of 2019 Update: Enrolled and On Campus Edition
Well...all but one technically... Nathan Bond of The Daily Stampede dot com was able to confirm through a school official that 18 members of the class of 2019 are officially enrolled at USF. This includes the four early enrollees: McArthur Barnett, Daquan Evans, Jayden Curry, and Jason Vaughn. As Nathan has pointed out in the below, Largo HS OL Raymond Collins will be on campus in the fall. Per a #USF official, every member of the 2019 signing class is enrolled for summer classes, expect Largo HS OL Raymond Collins, who will get to campus in the fall.— Nathan Bond (@BullsNathanSBN) June 24, 2019 Additionally, transfer linebacker Patrick Macon from OK State, defensive back KJ Sails from UNC, and defensive back Devin Studstill from Notre Dame are enrolled as well. Macon and Studstill are eligible this fall, while we are still awaiting word if Sails will be eligible. Sails is currently petitioning for immediate eligibility due to family tragedy. I’ve got it on good authority that Oklahoma State transfer LB Patrick Macon, UNC CB transfer KJ Sails, And Notre Dame DB Devin Studstill have all enrolled at #USF for the summer session.— Nathan Bond (@BullsNathanSBN) June 24, 2019 For information regarding the class of 2019, check out the freshmen class previews in part 1, part 2, and part 3. #PlayFastScoreFaster
