WILMINGTON — The third captain’s practice of the weeks just ended. There were some changes in attendance and the practice pretty much had the same deal of basic drills and scrimmaging. Here’s the list of guys in attendance.
Goaltenders: Nolan Schaefer, Mike Hutchinson
– Thursday was the first day that Tuukka Rask  wasn’t out there, so it was nice to get a look at Schaefer and Hutchinson in the scrimmage portion of practice.
– After joining his teammates Wednesday, Mark Recchi  was not out there for Thursday’s session.
– Attendance means incredibly little for something so nonchalant and optional, but it’s nice to see the newcomers taking initiative. Horton and Campbell have been out there for all three practices. Horton said earlier in the week that they had captain’s practices while he was a member of the Panthers but the players generally didn’t show up to them. Tyler Seguin  was out there once again skating with the goaltenders. A lot of younger players partook in Bob Essensa’s camp since the actual captain’s practice itself is not for first-year guys.
