Flyers' prospect camp opens


     The Flyers' prospect camp was held before a huge crowd at the Skate Zone in Voorhees on Wednesday.

    Among the "name" Flyers prospects who were there: Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, Matt Read, Erik Gustaffson, Mike Testwuide, Ben Holmstrom, Zac Rinaldo, Tom Sestito, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Kevin Marshall and Eric Wellwood.

   Oliver Lauridsen (remember the name), a 6-6, 220-pound defenseman from Denmark, was impressive in a one-on-one drill in which he defended the highly touted Schenn.

   There was no scrimmage today, just lots of drills.

   Sestito, a 6-5, 228-pound forward, is among the newcomers who could make the team in traning camp later this summer. He said he thinks of himself as "more than an enforcer," and that he gained invaluable experience in a nine-game stint last season with Columbus. He had two goals and two assists in that span.

   Breakaways. GM Paul Holmgren said he is still negotiating with RFA Wayne Simmonds.....Holmgren left the door open for a minor FA move, but said nothing was imminent. FAs Jason Arnott and Jamie Langenbrunner, two players on the Flyers' radar, signed with St. Louis on Wednesday.....Camp resumes Thursday at 9 a.m. It is free and open to the public.
