Jets' prospect Julian Melchiori spent the summer training with NHLers Jeff Skinner, Steven Stamkos and James Neal under the supervision of fitness guru and ex-NHLer Gary Roberts.

The result: increased strength, more speed and an 11-pound weight loss. Melchirori is preparing for the AHL's St. Johns' season opener and hopes to make an impression on the Jets' coaching staff. Although his scoring numbers from junior hockey are modest, he did blossom with 17 assists in 26 games after he was traded to Oshawa late last season. Melchiori might be worth keeping an eye on when NHL training camps finally open.
