Bulletin: Senators hold annual development camp from June 29 to July 5

Five picks from 2006 entry draft will attend

 

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators released today the schedule and list of 24 players attending the annual development camp from June 29 to July 5 at Scotiabank Place and the Bell Sensplex. In addition to 2005-06 Senators rookies Andrej Meszaros and Patrick Eaves, five of the club's seven selections from the 2006 NHL Entry Draft held Saturday in Vancouver will be attending, including Ottawa's first-round pick Nick Foligno.

 

The development camp focuses on off-ice and on-ice training led by the Senators strength and conditioning coach Randy Lee, director of player personnel Anders Hedberg, goaltending coach Ron Low, video coach Tim Pattyson and Binghamton Senators head coach Dave Cameron. Former Sarnia Sting head coach Shawn Camp and powerskating specialist Marc Power are also instructors.

 

The camp will put the players through the team's training program, while allowing staff to assess the players and individualise their summer training programs. To complement their physical training, the group will work on sport psychology and mental skills, as well as team-building activities and sport nutrition sessions.
