BLOG: Yakupov feeling refreshed
Oilers winger Nail Yakupov is one of the many pros taking part in the Perry Pearn 3 vs. 3 Hockey Camp. Now a few weeks into training here in Edmonton, Yakupov says he is feeling refreshed and ready for training camp.
After making his way to Edmonton from Russia, Yakupov has had the opportunity to work out with the Oilers trainers and skate with teammates and prospects.
“I’m refreshed and just waiting for the season. I’m having a pretty good time here and just having fun this summer. There are a lot of things to do here before the season, especially when you’re waiting for training camp,” he said.
Travis Ewanyk and Yakupov were the Oilers representatives at the hockey camp on Monday, though more current players and prospects are expected to participate later this week.
