NEWARK – Colton Phinney’s biggest takeaway from New Jersey’s development camp was skating.

“It’s kind of like a lost art and I need to work on that, because if you work on that it can help your overall game,” Phinney said. “Basically just the importance of that, and the faster you can get to a spot, the more time you have [and the] easier it is to make a save.”
