Throughout this week's Prospect Camp, Chicago-area native and 2012 Blackhawks draft pick Vincent Hinostroza will share his thoughts about his experiences in camp for chicagoblackhawks.com.

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.

The players are kept fairly busy during Prospect Camp, but when they get a few moments to themselves, you can be sure they'll let their Twitter followers know what they're up to.

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.

The Chicago Blackhawks added a hard-nosed blueliner to the organization on Sunday, agreeing to terms with defenseman
Sheldon Brookbank on a two-year deal on the first day of free agency. As a warm--actually more of an extremely hot--Chicago welcome, the Blackhawks Blog brings you The Friday Five: Brookbank Edition. Here are five fun facts about the Blackhawks' newest defenseman.

1. In 2007 Brookbank won the Eddie Shore Trophy as the AHL’s Outstanding Defenseman.

The blueliner took home the top defensive award the same year he was named to the AHL’s All-Star team, leading all AHL defensemen in scoring and setting career highs in goals (15), assists (38), points (53) and appearances (78). Brookbank played in the league’s All-Star Classic where he collected two points (G, A). 2.
