First round pick Jake Virtanen will no be allowed any contact until the middle of October because of off-season shoulder surgery.
The surgery took place in May and while Virtanen is skating and shooting with the big club in training camp, he is a bit frustrated because he can't give or take a hit. "It’s pretty frustrating watching the guys do battle drills because I want to be in there," Virtanen, 6-1 and 214 pounds, said. "I'm a young kid, but I'm not the smallest guy out there and I think I could be doing well in those battle drills. There are certain times. . . you think you could make a big hit. You have that feeling like, I wish that was me so I could make an impression. Personally, I've come far since my shoulder (surgery). It's great right now. It's strong. I'm really looking forward to just getting back into the groove of things and getting back into the physical part of the game." He is worth taking in dynasty pools but not in one-year drafts as he is most likely returning to junior hockey. Sep 21 - 10:11 AM
