BEYOND THE BOARDS
DEVELOPMENT CAMP DAY #5

Fans who packed the Dwyer Arena bleachers today for the first of two weekend scrimmages at Development Camp were treated to a lively contest, as Team White defeated Team Blue by a score of 5-2.

After a scoreless first period, Team Blue goaltender Nick Eno earned the loudest cheer of the day four minutes into the second. Eno was knocked off his skates while slowing the puck down behind the net, but got back to his feet in time to make a diving glove save to keep the score tied at 0-0.

Camp invitee Steven Beyers (Barrie-OHL) opened the scoring minutes later with a slap shot that beat Eno low on the stick side. Beyers finished the day with a goal and an assist.

"I'm glad I was able to go out there and make something happen," Beyers said. "Hopefully I can carry it on tomorrow. There's not a whole lot of pressure [as an invitee] -- they're not expecting a whole lot -- but you want to go out there and prove yourself."

Eno and Team White goaltender Connor Knapp, who was perfect through 22 minutes, exited the game after the goal to make way for invitee goaltenders Michael Houser and John Cullen.

The offensive play opened up a little bit after the goaltender changes, with Team White taking a 2-1 lead into the third period on the strength of a Brad Navin goal.

However, it wasn't until the game switched to 4-on-4 play midway through the third period that the scoring really picked up. With more room to skate, Team White's offense began to click, leading to consecutive goals by T.J. Brennan and Matt Zarbo just a minute apart.

Tyler Ennis and John McCarron scored Team Blue's lone goals, while Marcus Foligno rounded out the scoring for Team White.


The prospects will be back in action tomorrow, with another scrimmage scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on the final day of camp.
