WILMINGTON, MA - Camp invite Daniel Carr made the most of the grueling 2012 Bruins Development Camp and proved he can more than hold his own amongst top young talent.

“This is awesome," said Carr of camp. "It’s a great experience."

Carr brought an already impressive resume to Wilmington, having played for Union College last season and had both 20 goals and 20 assists for 40 points.

But the 20-year-old was quick to put the collective success of the team before personal achievements.

“I think that was a kind of key for us once we achieved our goals as a team guys started to achieve goals individually,” Carr said of the NCAA run Union made this year.

However, Carr did more than just answer the RSVP invite to the development camp, he showcased that team-oriented game with the panache of a high draft pick.

The Dutchman seemed to be out on the ice for almost every goal his team scored during scrimmages and notched one himself.

Time and time agian, Carr showed his wheels, and skated hard to create opportunities and space. He was also stingy along the boards, freeing pucks out to teammates and even threw a stiff check into 6’5” Dougie Hamilton along the boards.

It's clear the 6-foot, 185-pound Carr maintains the same approach despite coming up to the next level.

“I think you just gotta approach every day," said The Sherwood Park, Alberta-native. "Just take everything skate by skate and see how it goes."

After the final day of practices, Carr emphasized how much he’d learned in the camp and grown as a player.

“Well it’s been a good learning experience - that’s kinda the big thing,” Carr said. “I think you learn a lot from the guys around the room and you learn a lot from the coaching staff on the ice.”

On top of military-style conditioning and playing on a stage with professionals, Carr was able to test his metal among the elite.

“The big thing is it teaches you what it takes to be a pro and what you have to do to get to pro hockey."
