Former Indiana Ice player Brian Ferlin scored a goal today and turned some heads in the first of two scrimmages in Boston Bruins development camp.
Ferlin's team won 3-1. He also, according to Boston hockey writer Matt Kalman, "threw some solid hits" during the scrimmage. Says Ferlin in Kalman's story: "It’s been good getting to meet everyone. And just getting out there today to showcase a little of what you can do, play against everyone. Obviously I’m playing with some good players, so you get some pretty good chemistry right away.”
Ferlin also gets some mention in Bob Mand's wrapup of the day in camp, where Mand notes he has "decent wheels, despite earlier scouting reports" that had his skating rated as awkward. Mand also notes his finishing ability, converting a pass in the slot from Justin Florek, and physicality.
