Asmundson gets a look at Washington Capitals development camp

The journey continues for Keegan Asmundson.

The goaltender had a second semester to remember for the Canisius College Golden Griffins, one that set program records and carried the team to its third straight Atlantic Hockey semifinals.

Asmundson has parlayed that into professional opportunities and will get another chance to impress decision makers when he participates in the Washington Capitals development camp July 7-11.

Asmundson signed with the South Carolina Stingrays after the Griffs' season ended. He played three games in the ECHL, including earning his first pro win via shut out.

He then was loaned to the Hershey Bears as the Captials' AHL affiliate made a postseason run. Asmundson never played in a game for the Bears, but that was never the plan. He spent significant time as part of the Black Aces practice squad.

He owns four records at Canisius including career goals against average (2.08) and career save percentage (.930) helped tremendously by the single-season marks he set as a senior in both categories (1.96, .930).

Meanwhile, Tanner Lomsnes, a verbal commit to Niagara, will participate in the Dallas Stars' development camp next week. Lomsnes, a 20-year defenseman, played 56 games for the Corpus Christie IceRays of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) last year. He had 57 points (24 goals, 33 assists) and was a 2015 NAHL Top Prospect.

Niagara has not released its incoming freshmen class.

Eden native Alex Iafallo is currently at the Tampa Bay Lightning's development camp after he attended the Minnesota Wild's camp last summer. Iafallo, who will be a junior at Minnesota-Duluth, had 25 points (eight goals, 17 assists) in 34 games for the Bulldogs last season. He was a plus-16.
