If this isn’t a backyard rink move, then I don’t know what is. Â Or, as they say in the Pond Hockey documentary, “PARK MOVE!” Â Either way, Ryan Donald showed some nifty hands during the final day of the Boston Bruins’ Development Camp during a breakaway drill. Â Donald, a smahht kid out of Yale and a Bruins non-roster invitee to their Dev camp, isn’t exactly a shoe-in to get a pro contract after camp (Update – I was wrong! Good for Ryan: http://b.globe.com/cmNDJg).Â But after this little dipsy-do, he’ll at least be able to tell his grandkids that he made VP Cam Neely, GM Peter Chiarelli, and coach Claude Julien smile. Â And even if he never makes it to the big leagues, he’ll always have Youtube. Â And, of course, backyard-hockey.com.
Thanks to youtube member SCHWINIEG for the video.
Here’s a recap of the final day of B’s Dev Camp courtesy of bostonbruinsTV, with Donald’s goal coming at the 0:40 mark.
