FLAMES OPEN TRAINING CAMP

The Adirondack Flames opened training camp today at the Glens Falls Civic Center for the first on-ice practice as a team. The squad contained sixteen players assigned to Adirondack from Calgary including Flames’ veteran forward Trevor Gillies, who has played at the Civic Center before and is excited about calling it his home ice.

“I do remember how awesome the crowd was and how passionate they are about hockey here,” Gillies said. “I’m looking forward to playing in front of those kind of crowds and show the fans what we got here.”

Head Coach Ryan Huska, Assistant Coach Todd Gill, and Goaltending Coach Scott Gouthro were all in attendance for the practice. Gouthro and the Flames’ goaltenders were the first on the ice for basic warmup and stretching routines. Twenty minutes later Huska, Gill and the Flames’ skaters made their way out for a warmup skate followed by passing and puck control drills. The practice then shifted focus to breakouts, odd-man rushes and small ice drills. Huska was thrilled to finally get on the ice at the Civic Center with his players.

“There was a level of excitement on the ice this morning,” Huska said. ”[The coaching staff] was here earlier than normal because we were antsy and looking forward to going. I think the players felt the same way.”

The practice lasted close to two hours and was followed by a workout session in the Civic Center’s newly built weight room. Players will be back on the ice tomorrow at 10 a.m. Fans are welcome to visit the Civic Center to watch the Flames prepare for their exhibition home-and-home series vs Utica this weekend.
