Training Camp Recap

The Oshawa Generals held their annual Training Camp this past week at the Tribute Communities Centre. This week-long event gave players, draft picks and free agents the opportunity to showcase their talent on the ice for the hockey staff in the hopes of cracking the Generals roster for the 2017-2018 season.

The week started with a welcoming to players and families from General Manager Roger Hunt and Owner Rocco Tullio. Players then made their way through medicals, head shots and fitness testing before dividing up into Team Lindros and Team Orr for on ice practice.

Tuesday saw the teams take the ice for two scrimmages throughout the day. First game of the day saw Kyle Keyser backstop for Team Lindros and Logan Gauthier suit up for Team Orr. Over the course of the game, teams exchanged a pair of goals to leave the game tied at the end of regulation. Overtime solved nothing seeing the team take to a shootout. After seven shooters, Krastenbergs ended it, solidifying a win for Team Lindros. Final score 3-2.
