Wings wrap up Development Camp in TC
TRAVERSE CITY – A scrimmage at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City put a wrap on this year’s Red Wings Development Camp. Team Yzerman beat Team Lidstrom 5-1.
However, the camp was much more about teaching their prospects “The Red Wing Way” and getting a first-hand look at their future talent.
It was most important for the players who return to their respective NCAA schools. NCAA rules do not allow players like First-Round Pick Dylan Larkin to come back for the Prospects Tournament September 12th at Centre Ice Arena.
The 17-year-old will return to Ann Arbor for his freshman year at the University of Michigan. In the meantime, he left a good impression on the Wings and specifically Grand Rapids Griffins Head Coach Jeff Blashill.
“The thing I really like about Dylan is how hard he plays every single shift, how he attacks the ice every single shift.” Blashill said. “He’s going to grow at the University of Michigan under great coaching there and he’s certainly got a bright future ahead of him.”
