Well, the last day of Prospect Camp has come and gone.

On the ice, it was another good win for our team, and I was able to help in the victory with a goal and an assist.

On my goal, Joe Gleason was flying up the ice. I got to the open area and he fed me through the defenseman. I just had to tap it into the open net. Then on my assist, Denis Hollenstein gave me the drop pass, he got open, and he yelled for it back and buried it. I was pretty fortunate there – he saw the play the whole way.

It was another tough battle, and another good win for the team during Prospect Camp scrimmage today.

It’s so much fun to play out there with these guys. Everyone comes and battles – it’s really fun.  When the play gets this competitive, it’s natural that there will be fights or shoving between the teams, and I was part of it today. We’ll all be friends after the game’s over, but on the ice, no one on the other team is a friend. It’s a battle – just the heat of the moment kind of thing.

I took a turn in the shootout, and it was cool to get the call from our coaches. I made a move there, but I hit some bad ice. I probably should have just shot it, and tried to get it past the goalie’s glove. It’s great that we still won the game.

For the rest of the day, I think we might walk down to the beach, and down Michigan Avenue. It’s our last night together as a group in Chicago, so we want to just enjoy the city a little bit before we head out tomorrow.

Whatever we do, it won’t be quite as big as yesterday, when we had our social at Trump Tower. We were able to be outside, and take in the view of Chicago. Patrick Kane wound up stopping by, and it was cool to meet him. He was really interested in where we came from and how we were liking the camp; he was a really nice guy.

Well, we only have one more day left of camp: it’s one more chance for us to show off what we can do. I think the fans that come can expect a really competitive, fast-paced game tomorrow.

Day three of Prospect Camp was different in a good way. It was the first day of scrimmages, which gave us another opportunity to show what we can do.

My team started the day with on-ice training, very similar to what we had done the past two days. It was a hard practice – we came back to our locker room pretty gassed, and then we had to go out and play the scrimmage not much later.

Day two at prospect camp – at least on the ice – was mostly the same as day one. The on-ice stuff was great again. It was all competition drills: one-on-ones, two-on-twos. We’re all coming out trying to get better, which is the point of the camp. It’s great to play with so many skilled guys.

After my off-ice workout, we’re going back to the team bus and back to the hotel. I’m not sure what we’re going to do after that.

I had an early start to my day today – I was on a bus at 6:30 a.m. heading to the United Center. But no matter how early it was, it was the easiest wake-up call I’ve ever had.
