Over the past 5 days the Phoenix Coyotes rookies have been running through intense drills and scrimmages. Now they get a chance to take to the ice in game format, as they do battle with the Los Angeles Kings rookies Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon at The Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, CA.
Both clubs rookie camp rosters consist of recent draft picks, college/amateur free agent signees as well as young players on tryout looking to break into these organizations. This is a chance for many of these young players to show the coaching and management staffs a little of what they are made of.
For the Phoenix Coyotes, a few of the players fans should keep an eye out for are goaltender Mark Visentin, defenseman Brandon Gormley, center Andy Miele and winger Lucas Lessio. Both Visentin and Gormley were first round picks of the team back in 2010, while Miele signed on with the organization towards the end of last season after having a Hobey Baker winning year in college and Lessio was a second round pick for the club this past June.
Wednesday's game will be at 6 p.m. pst and Thursday's tilt will be at 2 p.m. pst. Both games will be streamed live on PhoenixCoyotes.com.
