Fourteen Habs prospects began development camp today at Brossard with some dry-land testing and training before taking to the ice this afternoon.

The group includes all seven players selected by the Canadiens at this month’s entry draft in June: led by first-round pick Alex Galchenyuk, who went through his dry-land session at around 10:30 this morning.

The players will be on the ice this afternoon from 4-6 p.m. for technical drills.  All on-ice sessions are open to the public.

Former Hab defenceman Patrice Brisebois, recently hired as a player development coach, spent some time on the sidelines while they players went through their dry-land paces, taking a moment to chat with defenceman Mac Bennett.

The videos attached show Galchenyuk being tested at the standing high jump; and taking part in some sprints (Alex is the player on the inside lane) along with Jimmy Oligny and Charles Hudon (on the outside.)
