Day Two in the Books
Posted By: Aaron Sims
The Admirals second practice occurred earlier today. The team had 26 players on the ice: 15 forwards, nine defensemen and two goalies.
The line combinations today (Left to Right):
Chad Painchaud – Michael Bartlett – Chris Mueller
Gabriel Bourque – Blake Geoffrion – Ryan Flynn
Kelsey Wilson – Mark Van Guilder – Mark Santorelli
Brett Robinson – Dylan Hunter – Andreas Thuresson
Kevin DeVergilio – Connor Shields – Ryan Thang
The nine defensemen (Jon Blum, Scott Ford, Julien Brouillette, R.J. Anderson, Wes Cunningham, Scott Lehman, Grant Lewis, Brett Palin & Jean-Claude Sawyer) were mixed and matched due to the odd number.
Roman Josi worked out with strength and conditiong coach Jason Nordby. Nick Spaling, Matt Halischuk, Linus Klasen and Teemu Laakso did not practice as they arrived late last night after being sent down by Nashville. Klasen hasn’t been cleared to practice after suffering an injury in a rookie game for Nashville.
Helping instruct at training camp is former NHL goalie Scott Fankhouser
. Fankhouser is the new assistant coach for ECHL Cincinnati. You may recall Fankhouser dressed as a backup goalie for the Admirals in Peoria a couple seasons ago. The next night, he dressed as Peoria’s backup in Milwaukee.
