Connor Carrick is trying to get into Pavel Datsyuk's skill development camp

That's one way to learn!

Connor Carrick's NHL career is still just getting started. Sure, he's been in professional hockey for three seasons now - which isn't that long, even though he's already played for four teams over that time - but there's always going to be room for him to grow and improve. Fifty-three NHL games at his age is pretty impressive, but learning to be more productive at the highest level will be beneficial for both him and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The off-season is a good time to seek ways to improve. And it looks like Carrick is pulling out all the stops:

Wouldn't we all love to go to a skill development camp run by Pavel Datsyuk? Is there anyone better in the world to learn pure skills from?

One problem, though...

Well, he's actually 22. But 22, 12, is there really a difference? Let him in, Datsyuk.
