Our newest contributor Sue Snavely- bringing highlights from the Hershey Bears!! Here are her first preseason impressions.
As I anticipate seeing the Hershey Bears play their second preseason game later today, I can’t help but be proud of this organization. Last season may not have had the outcome they wanted but their parent club won the Stanley Cup. Hershey is a minor league team, their job is developing young hockey player. There were 11 Caps players that started their career in Hershey; I would say the Hershey Bears did their job.
In my seat at the place I call my home away from home, I look at the list of players and recognize 13 of the 30 players. This will be a team of young prospects in Hershey this season.
Ten minutes into this game and I have one statement: “fast fast fast.” Axel Jonsson-Fjallby is everywhere, Max Kammerer is a hitter and goaltender Ilya Samsonov, well he needs to stay in his net.
This will be an exciting year to see how the Bears recover from last season with a new coach – Spencer Carberry at the helm.
