The NHL Development Camps give teams a way to look at their rookies, draft prospects and players they may have missed. Quite often, the Development Camps produce some awesome highlights and this year, the shootouts produced some phenomenal moves. The guys over at the Puck Daddy Blog put together an impressive list.
Aleksander Barkov of the Florida Panthers and Jujhar Khaira of the Edmonton Oilers pulled off the same sick one-handed backhander.
Sam Bennett of the Calgary Flames went with the famous Datsyuk deke.
Jakub Vrana of the Washington Capitals went with a partial skating backwards move before shelfing it right under the bar.
Finally, the best move of all the camps goes to Viktor Arvidsson of the Nashville Predators and his future teammate Kevin Fiala’s deke was nothing to turn your nose up at either. For Arvidsson to control the puck with the hell of stick on top of it requires some phenomenal hands and strength.
