WILMINGTON — Anthony Camara was the first OHL player returned to his team by the Bruins in this year’s training camp, but coach Claude Julien had some kind words for the team’s third-round pick.
“He’s a pretty tough individual that can play the game. We’ve always said that before. We like to find guys that if they’re going to be guys that are tough hockey players and want to play part of that role, they’ve got to also know how to play hockey,” Julien said of Camara. “That’s why we drafted this guy. He’s got some decent skills, and his skating his actually pretty good. This year was just an experience here for him. He got a taste of what pro hockey is all about. He’s going to come back next year an even better and more comfortable player.”
The 18-year-old Camara will return to the Saginaw Spirit, where he has established himself as one of the league’s top fighters over the last two years. Here’s a video of Camara dropping the gloves with fellow B’s prospect Tyler Randell.
