Max Plante (Hermantown), Robby House (Minnetonka) and Mason McElroy (Wayzata) were among the players chosen to stand in front of a packed dining room and shred share their teams' highlights from the day to the group.

Per camp tradition, each of the six teams selected a player to share their highlights. McElroy, a goaltender who led Wayzata to the Bantam AA state championship this spring, appeared to be particularly at ease under the spotlight.

The dinner also included a speech from University of Minnesota strength and conditioning coach Cal Dietz, who encouraged players to embrace a "warrior mentality" toward their on and off-ice workouts. 

Dietz, who has worked with world-class athletes from multiple sports, said the common trait shared by all of them is their mental attitude, specifically a hunger to uncover ways to improve every day.

Brodie Ziemer (Shattuck-St. Mary's) added two goals and an assist in what was easily the most lopsided game of the camp so far.
