It will probably be a while before Avery Peterson attempts to make his pro debut.
Peterson was taken by the Minnesota Wild in the sixth round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He'll spend one more year in the USHL before making the jump to the NCAA. He took part in the Wild's development camp. "I thought first day of camp he looked like a fish out of water," assistant GM Brent Flahr said. "A lot of it’s due to his strength, and probably nerves. But he made significant strides each day. Like he’s really worked hard, and he’s coming out of high school, so to this level of hockey, it’s a huge jump. But he has offensive instincts and an ability to score in some of the 3-on-3’s. But he’ll have to put some time in and get stronger. He’ll be a good skater once he does, but you can tell he’s not as physically strong as some of the others." Mon, Jul 15, 2013 10:50:00 AM
