Day two of training camp for the Windsor Spitfires and the hopefuls hit the ice for the first time.

Players vying for a spot on this year’s team underwent medical exams and general orientation on the first day, Monday.

The Tampa Bay Lightning may have drafted forward Christiano Digiacinto in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, but he’s not resting on his laurels. He says his biggest challenge will be keeping his sense of competition healthy.

He also has advice for new players. “I tried staying humble, you know. Wherever I was, I was kinda being myself. Let the older guys tell me what I need to do. Kind of listen, especially with the coaches and the training staff,” he says. “That’s the biggest thing, just listening to what they have to say. You do the simple things, and you’ll get noticed.”

The Spitfires play their first exhibition game on the road Saturday in Plymouth against the Whalers.
