The Providence Bruins practiced for the first time this season at The Dunk on thursday as they prepare to start the season with all eyes on them as the NHL remains in a lockout.

"Management being around you at practice, a little more eyes on you but there is also better players down here too, across the league. So it should be pretty fun," Carter Camper said.

Added Chris Bourque: "Every team seems to have two or three guys that would have made the NHL team so that makes the league a lot more competitive, a lot faster, a lot more skilled than it normally would be. So everybody is going to have to raise their game to that level."

The team also expressed its excitement for starting the season at home on Friday.

"Just starting the season at home is a big plus and the fans are going to be behind us. we had our first practice out there today and it felt pretty good and everyone is excited to start the season at home," Jordan Caron said.

His coach agreed.

"I am looking forward to it. you have to have your home opener sooner or later and i know there will be a big crown behind us and we want to please them. last year was a disappointment, but we are turning the page from that and hopefully it will be a positive outcome for us," Head Coach Bruce Cassidy said.
