BUFFALO, NY- In front of a packed house at Harborcenter Tuesday morning the white team won the French Connection 3 on 3 tournament. It was the final day of the development camp.
The white team had Casey Mittelstadt, Hudson Fasching and Rasmus Asplund on it. They didn't lose a game in the entire tournament finishing with a perfect 5-0 record.
Mittelstadt made a positive impression on everyone watching. He seemed happy with his first taste of life in the NHL. "I think its important to come out and take everything to try to develop and become a better player. Take things home with you that you need to work on so for me I definitely found some things I need to work on but I think he did well."
Head coach Phil Housley felt that everyone at the camp really bought into what the team wanted from them." He's just trying to fit in with the group. This is all new to everybody. All these players coming in, it's just about creating relationships and how you carry yourself off the ice. He did a really good job, not only Casey, but the whole group, coming here and bringing the energy."
