Pre-camp comments from Windsor GM Warren Rychel

Windsor Spitfires Posa and Brown

Warren Rychel helped the Los Angeles Kings reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993 and finally won the NHL’s top prize as a member of the Colorado Avalanche back in 1996.

These days he runs the Windsor Spitfires, one of the most successful junior hockey franchises – having won back-to-back Memorial Cups in 2009 and 2010.

His organization has helped develop several big name NHL prospects, including defenseman Cam Fowler, goalie Jack Campbell and the Kings Andrei Loktionov.

When development camp opens in LA a few days from now, two Spits will be in attendance, a pair of the 14 total invited guests.

Even though they went undrafted, Rychel says people shouldn’t be sleeping on his guys.

When I spoke with him today he wasn’t shy about their talents…

Saverio Posa
Key stats: 5-foot-10 defenseman, 2 goals and 11 assists in 59 games last season
Rychel’s take: shutdown d-man, maybe the most improved player in the OHL, -undersized – but has great feet, excellent one-on-one defender with a real good stick, rarely gets beat

Jeff Brown
Key stats: 6-foot-1 forward, 15 goals and 18 assists in 56 games last season
Rychel’s take: tenacious up and down, two-way winger, in your face type player, not big either – but intense, character player, not easy to play against
