Note: Periodically throughout the year, Oilers’ prospect Rob Schremp will provide Illegal Curve readers with a unique insight into the world of professional hockey.

For Rob’s seventh entry, he has agreed to answer some questions about his summer training program and his mindset heading into Oilers training camp next month.

Richard: How has your experience been training in Southern California?

Rob: It was a great experience having a chance to train and also hang out with guys like Ethan Moreau, Jarret Stoll and Jason Smith.

Richard: What has Chad Moreau had you focusing on?

Rob: He has me working mainly on core and leg strength.

Richard: You recently played in a tournament with some ex-London Knights. How did your team do?

Rob: We are right in the middle of it right now and we are actually doing pretty well. As of now, our record 2-1 but the best part of the tournament is just getting to see old buddies and playing for each other again.

Richard: How are you approaching the upcoming Oilers camp?

Rob: I am approaching camp with the mindset that the minors suck.

Richard: Do you feel you have accomplished the goals the Oilers coaches set out for you?

Rob: I’m not sure but i feel that i have accomplished the goals that i have set out for myself over last year’s season.

For Illegal Curve, I’m Richard Pollock.

  • Rich, for the next series:

    Is their any truth to the rumors that MacT doesn’t like you, and would you attribute that to your extended stay in the minors?

    If your relationship is ‘frosty’, why?

    Remember when you pissed in the basement of some dudes house in London, and subsequently almost threw it down with another party-goer?
