I can't speak to how often Velischek played forward in college, but I would guess him playing forward yesterday had more to do with the roster than it did with any potential position switch.
As for overall impressions, I don't really like to tag anyone a disappointment. It's a summer development camp. The purpose is to educate these kids on what it means to be a Pittsburgh Penguin. Sure, there are evaluations going on, but that's secondary.
That qualification aside, I suppose I would have liked to have seen a little more from Pouliot and Maatta. Again though, they're among the youngest there and not everyone is going to do what Morrow and Harrington did last year.
I had never heard about Andrej Sustr before this camp. I don't know if I'm just overly impressed with his skill level because you don't expect it from a 6'7" kid, or if he's just good, but I really don't know how he's slipped through three drafts. I have no clue if he pans out into an NHL defenseman, but based on this week, he seems like a heck of a prospect. If Shero could convince him to sign here at some point, I certainly wouldn't mind. Thing is, if Sustr wants to finish school, he won't be in a hurry to sign anywhere, and if he is interested in a contract, there are a lot of organizations with less crowded bluelines. He was at Rangers prospect camp last year, Ottawa has supposedly been looking at him, and reportedly scouts from 20 different teams watched him at some point last year. Even if the Penguins are interested, which is unknown, the decision is 100% Sustr's.
As for guys the Penguins do have the rights to, Teddy Blueger showed he's got great hands and creativity. Matia Marcantuoni wasn't a surprise, but he backed up what I had read about him - a ton of speed, pretty good shot, and great work ethic. Alex Velischek looks like another decent puckmoving defenseman. Kenny Agostino isn't flashy, but he has a good shot, doesn't hesitate to go into traffic, and is really good at using his body to protect the puck.
