"There was a lot more development in this camp than in the past three years," said defenseman Patrick Koudys (147th overall, 2011 NHL Draft). "[We worked on] more skill stuff on the ice, working on our habits and the details, there's a lot more that goes into it that we haven't really touched on in years past. It's awesome, I really learned a lot on the ice, off the ice, in the weight room... There was a lot more teaching this year."
"I feel my points this year don't really affect my offensive ability that I have," Koudys said. "That wasn't necessarily my role. I feel next year I'll be able to step in and fill that role and get some more points and then everyone can kinda see my offensive upside that I do believe I have."
