Four members of the Penn State men’s hockey team are showing off their skills for NHL teams this summer.
Nittany Lion forwards Eric Scheid and Zach Saar, and goalies Eamon McAdam and Matthew Skoff, are participating in NHL Developmental Camps.
Scheid has been spending time with the Anaheim Ducks, working out in southern California from Wednesday through Monday. Scheid spent some time last summer with the Minnesota Wild.
Saar will work out with the Toronto Maple Leafs, reuniting him with Casey Bailey. The Nittany Lions’ leading scorer last season joined the Maple Leafs for the final six games of the regular season. Saar worked out with the Washington Capitals last summer.
McAdam will rejoin the New York Islanders, with a scrimmage set for Wednesday at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. McAdam was a third-round draft pick of the team in 2013, and he will spend his third summer with the team.
Skoff will work out with his third different team this summer, but will have the shortest travel to meet up with the team next week. After previously participating in camps with the Philadelphia Flyers and San Jose Sharks, the McKees Rocks native will hit the ice with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Participating in the camps do not affect the NCAA eligibility of student-athletes.
