Day 6: September 24, 2008
Center Steve Ott

Camp in general has been a lot of fun, it’s exciting to get back going again.  After the summer you’re kind of biting at the bit to get back on the ice.  Now we are finally here and we have the first game under our belt.  It was fun to put on a Dallas Stars jersey again and to be playing together as a team last night. Unfortunately, our first game was a loss, but it’s fun just to get out there and make some plays. We’re just gearing up for the regular season. 

Today was kind of a surprise – usually we don’t have a full 60-minute scrimmage right after a game, especially since we play again tomorrow. But, the intensity of camp has been high throughout.  That’s one of the reasons the coaches wanted to go into another game today, to keep up the intensity and get us more experience in game situations.  The only way you see those situations is if you see them in a game and continue playing a lot of hockey.  Today was just another game with three 20-minute periods and it was something that we could use to transition toward our next game. 

My team, the black team, ending up winning the scrimmage today, which was good. There are still some little things that we need to improve on, like keeping our feet moving and getting more familiar and comfortable with the puck.  Recognizing the plays coming at you is something everyone can always improve on, and that’s what I took out of today. 

Our line played pretty well in the scrimmage today. I was with B.J. Crombeen and Loui Eriksson. Crombeen was phenomenal – it seemed like every shot went in for him today. I think he had a hat trick, or maybe even four. I don’t know, we just started clicking … he definitely buried a few out there today. I had a couple goals sneak in for me in the scrimmage today also.  B.J. hit the post on one, giving me an open net and the other one I was just wide open.  You have to hand it off to just fore-checking on our line and creating chances.  We were able to play a little more offense and defense together which was good.
