More post-scrimmage comments from Kozun, Vey, Lowry

Los Angeles Kings Development Camp recap, day one…

Here are a few more comments from some of the prospects following yesterday’s scrimmage:

Question – Were there any takeaways from the first game?

Brandon Kozun – “It’s tough, it’s July and you jump right into that – you get right into a game. But, it was still fun to get back into that competitive spirit and play a game.”

Joel Lowry – “The speed is definitely pretty high. You don’t have too much time out there to make a play. So, tomorrow (Tuesday) I’ll just try to make quick plays, I guess – puck on-your-stick and off-your-stick kind of thing.

Michael Schumacher on how he held up against the competition in Monday’s scrimmage – “It was my first game this year, so I did OK. I think we deserved to win the game. You know, that was a bad penalty there (in the final few minutes of the game).”

Linden Vey on if any of the new faces in camp this year have stood out to him yet – “It’s tough, it’s a short camp and you’re really focusing on what you’re doing. But, I came to the (rookie) camp last year with (Tyler) Toffoli and we got together a little bit at World Junior camp (for Team Canada) and I got to know him. He had a great season as well last year – when you score 57 goals in the OHL it’s a good year. He’s having a really good camp (here) as well.”

Game two is today at 9:30am PST.
