2011 Mini-Camp
Day One - Fishing
Share
The day before the players hit the ice on Day 2 of Isles Mini Camp, the players embarked on the annual fishing excursion aboard the James Joseph II in the waters of the Long Island Sound. While the fish weren’t biting as much as the players had hoped (only one “keeper” was caught amongst the group), there were plenty of highlights from the bonding experience.
  • Newly-signed Kirill Kabanov caught the only keeper of the day, despite the fact that he wouldn’t touch the fish saying, “Did you see its teeth? They’re big!”
  • Defenseman Matt Donovan struggled to land fish on his line, but did have a few catches. "if you include Brett (Gallant) and Nesser’s (Aaron Ness) fishing lines," Donovan had said.
  • Justin DiBenedetto, Calvin de Haan and Casey Cizikas battled amongst themselves to see who would reel in the most fish. DiBenedetto came away with four fish and was deemed the winner, despite accusations of cheating after pulling in a fish following the boat’s horn to lift the lines from the water. DiBenedetto’s reply? “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.”

Here are a few photos:
