The second and third days of Columbus Blue Jackets development camp may have seemed quiet on the ice, but they were packed with activity. Day Two: For Goalies’ Eyes Only Net presence was the focus during the second day, with four goalies each taking their spot between the pipes. The prospect goalies – Anton ForsbergMartin Ouellette and 2012 NHL Draft picks Oscar Dansk and Joonas Korpisalo – were given quite the workout by Blue Jackets goaltending coach Ian Clark on Wednesday. Each young man had the opportunity to work on their skills in finishing and overall speed, and Dansk and Korpisalo in particular benefited from the drills. Dansk particularly caught Clark’s attention. “(Dansk) has tremendous clarity in what he wants to become, and that’s an elite National Hockey League goaltender…he has excelled on the biggest stages and has a great mental makeup for goaltending. He’s a very well-schooled goalie with great positioning and he’s really good athletically,” Clark said. The focus on goaltending is an extension of how the team has addressed their net situation. With the departure of Curtis Sanford, the club traded Sergei Bobrovsky from the Philadelphia Flyers and signed Mike McElhinneyon free agency, all while Steve Mason remains their cornerstone. The emphasis on drafting young goalies like Dansk and Korpisalo shows the club’s need for top talent in net, and giving them a whole practice for themselves allowed them to get a taste of what coaches expect from them in the NHL. “(The goalies at camp) are competing against each other and challenging each other to be at a higher level, and at the same time you’re teammates, comrades and all those things,” said Clark. “It’s a unique parcel that comes with the goaltending position.” For this full article by Krista Golden Click Here.
