BEYOND THE BOARDS
DEVELOPMENT CAMP DAY 2: SESSION 2
      Justin Bailey

SESSION 2
2:15 - 3:30 p.m.

This year’s Buffalo Sabres development camp features two days of on-ice workouts and an intra-squad scrimmage. The final on-ice practice wrapped up Tuesday afternoon with Team Gold, featuring some Buffalo natives.

Justin Bailey, a second-round pick in 2013, Sean Malone, a sixth-round pick this year, and Alex Lepkowski of West Seneca were all on the ice together, wearing the jersey of the team they rooted for as kids.

Tyler Gjurich of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres also participated in the afternoon sessions.

Alex Iafallo of Eden, N.Y., an undrafted invitee, skated with the early group of Sabres prospects.

“Last year I watched the draft, obviously being a Sabres fan myself and you see guys like [Mikhail] Grigorenko, and [Brayden] McNabb’s here,” Bailey said. “I think it’s good to go to guys that have kind of been through this training camp before, guys who have played a few NHL games, to be able to ask them questions since they know obviously better than you do. I’ve been utilizing that to the most of my ability so far.”

Having some familiarity with the players in the camp is helpful as well.

“I have my friend J.T. [Compher] here. Justin [Bailey], as well from Buffalo,” Malone said. “That’s pretty cool and we’re going through the same experiences and having a good time so I’m enjoying it.”

For those that have been to the Sabres development camp before, the condensed schedule is welcomed. Last year, the camp was five days along and included an early morning training session with Navy SEALS.

“Thinking back, it was a good experience but it makes me cry inside a little bit,” center prospect Daniel Catenacci said with a smile.

Catenacci, in his third development camp, is working on making the transition to the pro game. He played last season with Owen Sound of the Ontario Junior Hockey League and scored three points in two games with the Rochester Americans. That taste of the American Hockey League has proved to be a good motivator.

“I just think the confidence, knowing that you can play at the pro level and do well, succeed,” he said. “I think confidence is the biggest thing and when you have that, you know you can do a lot better.”

Development camp concludes tomorrow with the Sabres Summer Fan Fest and the Blue & Gold Scrimmage. Doors to First Niagara Center open at 3 p.m.
