There's a tweet from Andy Brown with a picture of Filyayev and DeGray both shaking hands with and Attack jersey. Sorry, don't know how to share a tweet on here.

The kid looks tall but very lean.

Any early impressions?

Any thoughts on prospects we haven't discussed much or at all?

Free agents that stand out?

Anyone from an earlier draft class that looks particularly good or improved?

Any conspicuous absences?

There always seems to be at least one or two surprises.

I didnt see the first Scrimmage.
The second scrimmage Russell didn't play. Lucas Crawford is now playing forward, he was drafted as a d-man.
A few stood out to me
Doherty, plays with a edge
Chibrikov is a big kid. Needs a year to grow into his frame
Simard can skate pretty well for a bigger guy
Moro looks really good, I can see him on this team.

Interesting you both mention Moro. He would be a sure thing in any other year, from what I've seen. He's not very big, but that isn't an issue if you don't have 20 guys just the same. There is room for high end talent, regardless of size.....in any normal year.

I wonder if the Attack would consider carrying 1 or 2 extra in an extraordinary year? Or would spots be at an absolute premium, so as not to run out if opportunities pop up?

The team will be hit hard by graduation in the next two years. It's nice to know the future is good to go (Dudas/Struthers/Guzda/Groulx/Chibrikov/Russell/Moro and so on)

Anyway....thanks for the info on rookie camp.

Attack rookies arrive at camp

By Rob Gowan, Sun Times, Owen Sound
Monday, August 28, 2017 4:27:49 EDT PM

Main camp opens Wednesday for the Attack. (Rob Gowan The Sun Times)



Owen Sound Attack camp opened on Monday for the rookies and as it is every year, it was full of surprises.
"It is always full of surprises and some surprises are good and some surprises are bad," General manager Dale DeGray said following Monday's morning session. "But we are talking about 16- and 17-year-old kids and the first day and first time there are a lot of nerves involved."
The rookie camp opened on Monday morning with about 40 players and will continue on Tuesday before the main camp opens on Wednesday with returning players.
Most of the Attack's picks from this year's draft were in camp on Monday, with the exception of American Dylan Wendt, who the Attack picked in the fifth round, 20th overall. Others in camp included players from the 2016 draft, as well as some free agents.
Practices and scrimmages were scheduled for both the morning and afternoon on both Monday and Tuesday. DeGray said that although it was early, after Monday's morning skates he thought there was good tempo in the scrimmage and the goaltenders played well.
"I want to see it as it progresses and the cream will always come to the top," said DeGray. "Right now it is Day 1 and everything has been thrown into the pot and we will see what happens tomorrow afternoon."
Some notables in camp on Monday included Collingwood native Mitchell Russell, who the Attack took with their first pick, 20th overall, in April's draft, as well as goalie Mack Guzda, who Owen Sound took in the second round, 31st overall. Also in camp was Belarusian Vasili Flyayev, who Owen Sound took 55th overall in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft in June.
The Attack are expected to be a veteran-laden team this season with most of the squad from last year returning. But DeGray said he has told the young rookies not to get caught up looking at returning players.
"The whole idea in junior hockey is to have as good a player as a third-year veteran in a 16- or a 17-year-old rookie," said DeGray. "Their job is to get us to consider them to move a veteran and that is it. The rest of it is up to me and up to the staff."
DeGray said the one thing the players must do is leave everything they have out on the ice.
"That is all I can ask and that is all they can ask of themselves is to give everything they have got in that short little spurt," said DeGray. "If they do that and it wasn't enough, then it wasn't enough."
DeGray said he uses Jacob Friend as an example, who came to the Attack as a walk-on and has since been drafted by the Los Angeles Kings.
"I don't understand why kids wouldn't look at that as a situation to maybe put themselves in, if they are walk-ons or if they are draft picks," said DeGray.
As for how many rookies advance to the main camp, DeGray said that number varies from year-to-year depending on how the rookies perform.
"Quite frankly I leave it up to the kids," said DeGray, who has had anywhere from nine move on, to between 14 and 18 the past couple of years. "It is dependent upon who deserves to go."
DeGray said Wednesday's first day of main camp will be about seeing all the players again and making sure they have had a good summer of training.
"Wednesday will be a day to just get back on the ice as a group," said DeGray. "Thursday it will start to be a little bit more physical and be more spirited because the veterans are now on the ice."
The players in camp on Wednesday will include all returning players that are 19 and under, including those who have been drafted by National Hockey League clubs. Those players are expected to depart for NHL training camps the middle of next week.
And it won't be long until the players are tested in a game situation as the Attack are slated to play host to the Barrie Colts on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre. Owen Sound will be in Barrie for a game at 6 p.m. on Monday.
"Junior hockey is a quick process," said DeGray. "There is too little time to have any doubt in our minds whether or not you can play."

Thanks again.

I don't suppose the Attack would see fit to put their camp roster online?

There is interest in camp (always) and the timing (weekdays) is pretty bad for viewing. I know it isn't required, but they have to know there is interest.....

...so...what's taking so long?

The most important player on the team is the fan base. Nothing happens without them. Nothing.

Don't be coy.

That should make it easy to get up on the web.

So, if I live in Lion's Head and work in Sauble until 5pm?

Like I said in the previous post. They need to think about it....for just a split second and just do it. Okay....maybe not "need to" but it would be a nice gesture.

Or not.

I imagine there are 5000 hardcore fans, judging by attendance....and another 10000 occasional/somewhat interested. Printouts will do for those few people who can be there easily.

Otherwise...?

Thoughts on day 2
I agree that Doherty was the best player today.
I can see why Russell was a first round pick.
Moro should be on this team in my opinion
Condotta is very very small, but he's a smart player. If he can grow a little he's going to be a great player
Guzda looks very solid in net
