New Developments

As you all know because you diligently read RWD, Justin Fontaine is here in Minnesota for the Wild's development camp.

Over at the Wild site, they had a little write-up on college free agents invited to the camp. The only one who matters, of course, is Fonz.
This is Fontaine's first development camp and he said that after two days, its been an eye opening experience.

"It's been a great experience so far," Fontaine said. "They treat you well. You just have to try and ask a lot of questions to the guys that have been to these."

There is little doubt Fontaine will receive an opportunity at a professional contract following his senior season. He's scored more than 40 points each of the last two seasons and will likely be a first team forward selection in most preseason WCHA polls.

"I want to get faster and just improve in all areas of the ice," Fontaine said. "I want to work on everything and hopefully it will show when I get back to Duluth."

DU's Jason Zucker had the game winning goal at the Wild's scrimmage, but UMD's Justin Fontaine had 2 goals.
