Rookie Camp Report: Coach Murray on M. Schumacher

Los Angeles Kings coach Terry Murray spent some time with me yesterday to provide insight on what he’s seen from several of the attendees from Rookie Camp.

First up, we take a look at Michael Schumacher. He’s the tallest kid in camp and is the only player who came over from Europe to participate. Drafted in the seventh round of this year’s NHL Draft, he’s scheduled to play in the OHL this season for the Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds.

Murray – “I think keeping up with the pace of the play in the camp right now is very demanding for him. So, it’s going to be interesting to see how he rebounds. This is kind of a hump day for him and all these young kids, it’s a very demanding skate to finish it off. I think when we get into the games (against Phoenix on Wednesday and Thursday), I’m going to watch him very closely. He’s a nifty guy and he has lots of skill. I like what I saw in the Development Camp. He’s a player who’s the perfect example of what a process is all about. He’s 6-foot-5. He’s going to take time to mature, to get stronger, to catch up with where some of the players already are at this rookie camp. When you start comparing him to the NHL players, clearly on the physical strength and maturity side, he has a long way to go. But, he has skill – and that’s something a lot of players don’t have.’

After being selected by the Kings in June, Schumacher stopped by MayorsManor for an interview – you can read that conversation by clicking here.
