Connor Carrick is still trying to carve out an NHL career for himself. He's only 22, so he's got plenty of time - but every little bit counts. Every day you work, every advantage you can take.

So when Carrick found Pavel Datsyuk's skills development camp, it was a no brainer: he had to get in, even if it was only for kids.

And hey, what would you know - Pavel Datsyuk is willing to take him on.

Carrick is listed as 5'10, so he'll fit right in, right? Because he's all ready to go.

I'm so ready for this and hope it actually happens for real - granted that Carrick is livetweeting it, of course.
