Training camp's first scrimmage
Other notes from Day 1 ...
-- Red Berensen has been on the ice as one of the practice coaches.
-- Defenseman Derek Meech, who is fighting for a roster spot, was paired with Chris Chelios ... a good sign for Meech.
-- Prospect Evan McGrath was able to practice despite having a large gash on his left ring finger. McGrath said that he'll be able to participate fully this weekend.
-- Prospect Darren Helm (shoulder) skated on his own today. He's not likely to play in any of the scrimmages and might miss other practices as well.
-- Igor Grigorenko was on a line with Mark Hartigan and Aaron Downey at Team A's practice. (Team A didn't have a scrimmage.) The three players are fighting for roster spots with just one or two open up front.
