Jordan Kennedy will be ready for training camp

Wolfville, NS– Goaltender Jordan Kennedy can let out a big sigh of relief. The Maineiacs’ second round selection in the QMJHL Draft injured his hamstring at the Team Atlantic Under-17 Evaluation Camp this week but won’t miss significant time.

The therapist told him the injury should heal within a week or two.

“I just need to keep stretching and icing it,” Kennedy added.

The Maineiacs have talked to Kennedy about the injury and wanted to make sure he will be ready for training camp.

“They (Maineiacs) just wanted to know what happened, if I will be ready for training camp and if I would be ready for the UNB (University of New Brunswick) elite camp.”

Kennedy is glad he can de-bunk the rumors swirling around the rink and on the message boards about the seriousness of his injury.

“There were also many false rumors going around saying I blew my knee out or (I) broke a bone,” he added, “they (Maineiacs) called to make sure it was nothing too serious.”

As for the camp itself, he didn’t get a chance to talk to many of the coaches but the coaches were impressed on the limited showing that they saw.

“The players at the camp didn’t really talk to the coaches much,” Kennedy mentioned. “The only thing that was said to me was that I’m i was doing a good job staying big in all situations.”

Notes: At the Senior Chowder, pair of players with Maineiacs ties faced each other this morning. Anthony Pisano’s Beantown Bullies lost to Derek Henderson’s Whalers squad. The final was 5-1. Neither factored in the scoring but Pisano had three minor penalties in the game.
