Competing like a Young Veteran

Competing like a Young Veteran
Kevin Marshall was a part of the winning team in the Flyers' annual Trial on the Isle competition in 2011.
Five years ago, Kevin Marshall entered his first Flyers’ prospect camp as a newly drafted kid with so much to learn.
 
Fast forward five years and you get a veteran.

Marshall, 22, attended his fifth prospect camp since he was drafted by the Flyers in the 2nd round (41st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

“It's just me being a young kid still," said the 6’1”, 207 lbs, defenseman. “Yes it’s my 5th camp but I am really young…”

Marshall said that this year’s camp was different than the ones he had attended in the past. It was more of a teaching and learning process than what he was used to. He credited the Flyers’ player development staff, Ian Laperriere, Derian Hatcher, Riley Cote, and Joel Bouchard.

“The connection between them and us is cool because it’s more of a teaching process this year,” he said. “It's fun everyday. We come in and learn things on the ice and off the ice too…”

With five prospect camps and two seasons with the Flyers’ AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, he has posted 23 points (5G,18A) along with 200 PIM in 153 games. He has a lot of experience dealing with the staff and their philosophy.

Not only was Marshall still learning this past week, he was also teaching.
This unspoken role model understands how the Flyers’ system operates. So, he was able to relate to the younger and newer prospects that attended this year and led by example. 

“I am sure they might be looking at what I am doing and how I react to things. I put myself in their shoes because when I came in, there were 22-year old guys, and I was like they’ve been around and stuff like that.”

The Boucherville, Quebec native said he enjoyed that part of the camp.

“It’s fun for me because it goes around. It’s like a wheel when you start off you’re a kid and [now] I am the one that knows everybody here."

As for what lies ahead this coming September, Marshall is taking it one step at a time.
 
“As it is right now, my goal is to go back to Montreal get myself ready, get myself into the best shape I can be and to have a great training camp,” said Marshall. “From there, we will see what’s going to happen.”
