Penguins Rookie Camp Day 2: Unheralded Prospects Begin to Show Well | PHN+



Pittsburgh Penguins prospects, Lukas Svejkovsky

The Pittsburgh Penguins may have a few more players worth following with the WBS Penguins this season. With the first day gone and the opportunity more defined, a few of the Penguins unheralded prospects began to show well in the prospects camp. Of course, top prospects Sam Poulin and Nathan Legare draw attention, but a few others began to do the same.

It’s a long way to the NHL for most of the Penguins salvage yard, but it’s not impossible, especially for a 2020 fourth-round pick who skates with purpose and urgency.

On Sunday, Lukas Svejkovsky (4th Rd, 2020), showed an extra gear and the grit to go with it. He was one of a few prospects who aren’t often mentioned, or mentioned at all in the Penguins pipeline.

Coaches upped the ante in practice with battle drills for most of the hour-long practice, and we got to see a glimpse into the skillsets and who doesn’t mind a little contact. Or in the case of Nathan Legare, who likes a lot of contact.
