Some notes from today

- So why did Green finish atop the round-robin standings? It's not like Green was dominating possession or badly outshooting its opponents -- sometimes it was the exact opposite. But Green got the best goaltending, courtesy of Troy Trombley and Blake Pearson. And through Tre Potskin and Miles Manson, Green received the best overall production from its invited older forwards. You can probably include listed forward Jan Tesarek as part of that group as well.

- Veterans who stood out today: Trent Lofthouse had the day of his life, scoring four times and adding a nice assist. Breakout performer this season? Reid Petryk looked a man among boys at times, though his team didn't fare well. Indeed, all four of Everett's 19-year-old forwards -- Petryk, Josh Winquist, Manraj Hayer, Zach McPhee -- have looked very good during camp. I'm not sure having four 19-year-old forwards is the balance the Tips are looking for, but they've all played well.

- 16-year-old forward Dawson Leedahl has had a good camp, but he was pretty special in today's final game. He scored a pair of goals that had the wow factor.

- I focused a little on 97-born defensemen Kevin Davis and Noah Juulsen, who were first- and fourth-round picks in this year's bantam draft respectively, when their teams squared off this morning. I swear, they're the exact same player. Both modestly sized, both right-handed shots, both composed. Both also played a safe game. A lot of defensemen (Landon Oslanski, Griffin Foulk, Lucas Skrumeda, to name a few) have been very aggressive, taking every opportunity to jump into the play offensively. Davis and Juulsen both made a point of staying at home.

- Big Troy Trombley continued to look good in goal. He and longtime Everett prospect Andy Desautels, who are both 18, are the oldest goaltenders in camp, and there's a spot open for a goalie. Has Trombley put himself in the mix? Don't read too much into Desautels' numbers from the afternoon as he was hung out to dry by his defense.

- Returning goaltender Austin Lotz did not participate in scrimmages for the third straight day because of a strained hamstring. However, he did participate in the lunchtime goaltender practice, so the problem must be very minor. Winger Cody Fowlie got the day off, while Hayer sat out the afternoon.
