Steve Yzerman: “Hockey in Florida is Improving”

On the first day of development camp for the Tampa Bay Lightning, prospects worked hard to prove they belong on the team.

GM Steve Yzerman was impressed with what he saw and he talked about Slater Koekkoek’s no-contact status. along with how he felt about other players.

“He’s had shoulder issues…he’s had both his shoulders done now. The good news is, he’s only got two shoulders and he can’t hurt another one. He’s had procedures that we will think will get it taken care of and he’s a great prospect.”
