It wasn’t a pretty wrister that we saw time after time at Miami, but rather, former RedHawk captain Carter Camper went to the hard area of the ice and capitalized on a rebound while fighting off an Ottawa defenseman to net his first career goal in just his second NHL game, a 5-3 Boston winner. Camper was the Bruins’ best faceoff man in his first outing, a 4-2 win over the Blues, and got his first goal in last night’s win over the Senators despite going 0-for-4 on draws.
Former Miami captain, Carter Camper, was recalled by Boston. He will join the Bruins in time for Wednesday’s game at St. Louis and should skate during today’s practice. Camper, who notched 183 points in 156 games for the RedHawks, will have a real chance to get into the lineup as the defending Stanley Cup champions are struggling to score goals and are just 3-6 in their last nine games having been shutout four times during that stretch.
Congratulations Carter and good luck!
Hobey Baker Award winner Andy Miele and former Miami captain Carter Camper are getting plenty of attention at their first NHL training camps. Miele, who signed with the Phoenix Coyotes just after the end of Miami’s season, has been mentioned as a gifted playmaker and hard worker by many observers. Camper, who signed with Boston, notched 183 career points in 156 games with the RedHawks and has been equally impressive demonstrating the same skill that helped him become the second highest scorer in Miami hockey history at Bruins rookie camp.
