Ducks Hold Intrasquad Scrimmage on Day 3 of Training Camp
By Kyle Shohara

A capacity crowd was on hand to watch the Ducks hold an intrasquad scrimmage at THE RINKS – Anaheim ICE on Friday afternoon.

Team Black and Team White battled in a spirited two-period contest that eventually fell in favor of Black, which got the game-winning goal off the stick of Peter Holland.

Patrick Maroon, Charlie Sarault, Jakob Silfverberg and Ben Lovejoy scored for White. Kyle Palmieri, Andrew Cogliano, Matt Beleskey, Alex Grant and Holland found the net for Black.

“Pretty fast paced,” said Devante Smith-Pelly (Team White) of the action. “It was fun, it was good. I thought all the guys played pretty good.”

Smith-Pelly is one of many Ducks vying for a roster spot, and he knows he needs to bring his best throughout camp. “I thought I did well,” he said of his play today. “I played how I had to. Played physical. Playing with Winnie [Daniel Winnik] and Patty [Patrick Maroon], two other guys who like to play how I play down low. I thought we did a good job today.

“I like playing with guys who are similar to me, and I know exactly where to go. And when I have the puck, they know exactly where to go, too. It’s pretty simple. All pretty strong guys who like to play down low.”

The trio of Selanne, Silfverberg and Bonino has gelled so far during training camp.

For the second consecutive day, the trio of Silfverberg, Nick Bonino and Teemu Selanne skated together, and they looked dangerous throughout the scrimmage. The line converted on a goal when Silfverberg outwaited John Gibson to bury a rebound right outside the crease. Could this line still be intact come opening night?

“I have an idea of what I want to see, and I’m going to allow that to take shape,” said head coach Bruce Boudreau. “Not everybody’s going to play in the same preseason game, so lines will have to be changed at that point. But at practice, I like to keep the top-18 forwards or 16 forwards the same.”

Bonino said his line began skating together before the start of training camp.

“We both came in a little early, so I was able to play with him a lot last week,” said Bonino, on Silfverberg. “And me, "T" [Selanne] and him all wore the same jersey and tried to get a little chemistry going. [Silfverberg’s] a good player. He’s got a great shot and he’s really responsible in the D zone, which is nice. Playing with those two is a lot of fun, and I hope it can continue.

“It’s early, and I know “T” and I know each other a little bit, but when you get a smart player like Jakob in there, it shouldn’t take long to mesh,” said Bonino. “We’re comfortable with where each other is. It’s been good so far.”

Boudreau, on Silfverberg’s goal: “His quickness, for him to get from the corner to the front of the net for that rebound before anybody else, and have the intelligence to hold onto it for an extra second for his goal, I thought was really good.

“When [you’re looking for] potential fits, that was a fit. Teemu likes playing with Bonino. There’s your second line, and you’re looking for that other guy to come in. Silfverberg can play the left side, so we’ll start with him there.”
