Thomas Heemskerk makes a save on Brandon Mashinter at Worcester Sharks training camp practice

Because Friday’s practice was more of a pregame skate not much was happening in the session that lasted just over an hour. With Tyson Sexsmith getting the start against Connecticut the bulk of the work during drills was done by Thomas Heemskerk. Once many of the players in the line-up for tonight left the ice he went through several drills with the forwards remaining on the ice. It game me the opportunity to try out a new video camera.

One forward that is playing Friday that stayed on the ice was Brandon Mashinter, who went through several drills on his own.

The last handful of players on the ice were Sean Sullivan, Matt Irwin, and Ben Guite who took turns taking feeds from head coach Roy Sommer and blasting one-timers at an open net. Unfortunately I had left the video camera down at the far end of the ice, and it’s a shame because the conversation between them was hysterical.

I did get a chance to chat with assistant coach Dave Cunniff for a few moments after practice as he scooped up the loose pucks, and he was impressed at the amount of speed many of the players in camp had. He thinks this could be one of the fastest Worcester squads ever.

Worcester went on to win the exhibition game with Connecticut 2-1, with Ryan Del Monte and Nick Petrecki having the tallies for the WorSharks. Tyson Sexsmith had 21 saves in the complete game win. Curt Gogol, Petrecki, and Anthony Perdicaro all dropped the mitts for Worcester.

The WorSharks lines, as reported by @SharksAHLingame, were (in no particular order)
Perdicaro/Del Monte/Vaskivuo
