The final on-ice action from the 2016 Development Camp took place yesterday, and it was a match filled with highlight-reel plays.

2015-2016 Season with Flint Firebirds: 30 G - 35 A — 65 P, 32 PIMs
Bitten has proven to be a great use of a third-round pick, and has shown a lot of promise over the course of the prospect event. In yesterday's final game, he was sent in alone by Nikolas Koberstein, and he deked the opposing goaltender completely out of the play for a goal.
2015-2016 Season with Ottawa 67's: 27 G - 29 A — 56 P, 74 PIMs
Addison had a great season in the OHL after being selected as one of the final picks in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He plays an up tempo, physical game, and scored his goal buy driving to the net, redirecting Michael McCarron's pass.
2015-2016 Season with HC Fribourg-Gottéron: 8 G - 13 A - 21 P, 14 PIMs
After a tumultuous season, Réway is hoping to find some consistency when he plays in North America, probably with the St. John's IceCaps, in 2015-16. He showed off his offensive skills with an effortless deke to the backhand in the scrimmage.
2015-2016 Season with Brandon Wheat: 33 G - 29 A - 62 P, 53 PIMs
Duke has been impressive all camp long, and capped things off with an incredible pass to Kody McDonald for an assist. If any player earned a shot at signing a professional contract with his performance at camp, it was Duke.
The clip starts with a great hipcheck by invitee Scott Dornbrock on 2016 draft choice Michael Pezzetta.
2015-2016 Season with Windsor Spitfires: 17 G - 40 A - 57 P, 56 PIMs
Sergachev has been showing off his offensive abilities since development camp began, and was once again joining (or leading) the rush on Thursday. He scored a nice goal by following up the play and casually knocking a rebound into a gaping net.
Sergachev is slated to return to the Spitfires this season, and will have a good supporting cast on the 2017 Memorial Cup host. He may yet challenge for a spot in the Canadiens lineup, making the just-turned-18-year-old one of the most interesting stories to follow this off-season.
