Shattenkirk speaks

Terrier 2009-10 Captain Kevin Shattenkirk, now at Colorado’s development camp, did a Q&A interview for the Avs’ Web site, talking about his development at BU and his plans for next season and beyond., reporting on Redwings development camp, assessed 2009 Terrier recruit Max Nicastro.

Max Nicastro, who stands to play prime-time minutes during his freshman year at Boston University, has a few traits absolutely intrinsic to the puck-carrying defensemen that the Red Wings like on their teams. He keeps his head up over 95% of the time that the puck's on his stick, quickly issuing outlet passes and hard, low shots, his lateral mobility along the blueline is excellent, he skates very well overall, and his big, lanky 6-foot-3 frame is filling out well -- well enough that he issues the occasional big hit without specifically looking for that kind of stuff.

In Nashville, management is studying Colin Wilson’s performance to determine whether he’ll start the season in Nashville or AHL/Milwaukee.

At Islanders camp, Corey Trivino talked about his own future plans and his opportunity to move up the depth chart this season at BU.

The Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, visiting Bruins camp Friday, wrote that “the campers scrimmaged for the first time yesterday. Saugus native Jason Lawrence and 2009 first-round pick Jordan Caron scored the only goals. Camp ends today.”

Lawrence is number 83 in this video clip from the camp.

Andrew Glass is at Washington Caps development camp for the third time. A camp observer posted on his blog that Glass's game is somewhat reminiscent of ex-Terrier Chris Bourque.

Chris Higgins who participated in Columbus development has signed an AHL contract with the team’s AHL affiliate in Syracuse.

2008 grad Pete MacArthur, who spent his first pro season with the Blackhawks’s AHL club in Rockford, has reupped with Chicago, signing a one-year deal.
