Note: Periodically throughout the season, Oilers’ prospect and current Springfield Falcons’ winger Rob Schremp will provide Illegal Curve readers with a unique insight into the world of professional hockey.
For Rob’s sixth entry, Rob has agreed to answer some questions recapping his season with Springfield and previewing his off-season plans.
Here is the interview:
Illegal Curve: Springfield narrowly missed the playoffs this year. What do you feel the team could have done better?
Rob: That is tough to say; I think we played really hard all the way through the end of the season. I have to say that there was not a single game that we did not compete in.
Illegal Curve: Your all around game has made significant strides this year. What do you credit for that success?
Rob: I would have to attribute that to another year of being around experienced veterans and good coaching. The last two seasons I have played with both of those and I think my game has made strides.
Illegal Curve: Are you 100% healthy heading into the off-season?
Rob: Yes I am.
Illegal Curve: What are your summer training plans?
Rob: I really want to focus on working on my explosiveness. As well, I would like to work on my overall strength.
For Illegal Curve, I’m Richard Pollock.
