Penguins Development Camp Report: Day 4 (Live Blog)

Day four of Pittsburgh Penguins development camp is underway. Forwards are scheduled to be on the ice from 9:15-10:15. Defensemen will skate from 10:30-11:30.

9:05 Matia Marcantuoni is the first Penguin on the ice for the third day in a row followed shortly by forward Beau Bennett.

9:15 Two on none rushes. Oskar Sundqvist takes a spill into an extra goal laid out on the ice. He’s smiling so he must be ok.

9:23 Marcantuoni shelves a shot over the left shoulder of goalie Matt Murray. Snipe.

9:38: The forwards are currently doing drills where they skate around a net by the blue line and then take a shot on the goalie. Kenny Agostino was one that stood out in the drill.

9:44: It was just announced that the Penguins have signed forward Benn Ferriero to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level.

 

9:56: Bennett is continuing to impress. He is showing that he could develop into a great mobile forward in the NHL. Along with his great cutting abilities, he also has a nice wrist shot to go with it.

9:59 Forwards are now divided up into four groups working on stick handling through a series of six orange bricks. Once they make their way through the bricks they turn back and do it again. Oskar Sundqvist makes the drill look easy.

 

10:18: Practice for the forwards concluded with a breakaway challenge between Paul Thompson of the black squad and Marcantuoni of the white squad. Thompson ripped it in the net while Marcantuoni missed. Black team wins!

10:35 Defense hits the ice. Scott Harrington is the first defenseman on the ice.

 

11:05: As Eric Majeski from LetsGoPens.com said on Twitter, the defensemen are working on a lot of drills involving key components of Penguins hockey (Puck retrieval and breakout passing).

11:21 Goalies are back in their nets and the defensemen are taking passes from the coaches and ripping the puck on net. Newly acquired Brian Dumoulin having a hard time receiving the pass, mainly due to the chip-chopped ice.
