The Vancouver Canucks held their second day of training camp in Abbotsford on Friday.
Just like the previous day, fans showed up wearing blue and green to watch the Canucks participate in some on-ice sessions.
Fortunately, there was no bag skate on the second day.
Camp lasted from 9 AM to 12:30 PM. At 10:10 AM, a scrimmage was held between the two groups.
Here are three takeaways from the second day of Canucks training camp.
Vasily Podkolzin continues to impress
Vasily Podkolzin was part of group B on a line with Conor Garland and J.T. Miller.
To no one’s surprise, he impressed during the on-ice sessions and he got the crowd pretty intrigued. Since being drafted in 2019, Podkolzin has improved his shot and here unleashed a pretty lethal wrist shot.
One of the best thing’s about the 20-year-old’s game is his ability to drive to the net. He does that here but only to get denied by Michael DiPietro.
Podkolzin is already displaying levels of maturity in his game and is once again showing us why he is NHL ready.
