Below is the press release from the Predators, including the schedule of events and the list of players invited:

-Many of the club’s top prospects, 2012 draftees to attend-

Nashville, Tenn. (June 19, 2012) – The Nashville Predators will have many of their top prospects on hand, including several 2012 draftees, when they officially open their 2012 Development Camp on Tuesday, June 26 with fitness testing beginning at 7 a.m. at Centennial Sportsplex. Players will be available to the media after each on ice segment (see note below for breakdown) or by special request. The camp continues through Sunday, July 1 with four on-ice sessions coming Tuesday, June 26; Thursday, June 28; Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1.

The purpose of the camp is to educate and direct players in their pro development and conditioning programs, and the week’s events will be presided over by the Predators coaching and hockey operations staff. The Nashville Predators and Milwaukee Admirals (AHL Affiliate) coaching staffs, will lead the scheduled training regimen, which includes a variety of dry-land activities and workouts, on-ice fundamentals work, off-ice testing and team-building activities. The players will also receive instruction on training principles such as sport-specific power and strength enhancement, flexibility and off-ice conditioning.

All of the Predators draft picks that are still property of the team – and did not spend the majority of the 2011-12 season at the NHL level (Ryan Ellis, Craig Smith and Gabriel Bourque) – will be in attendance, as well as many of the draftees from next weekend’s 2012 Entry Draft.

All on-ice workouts at Centennial Sportsplex are open to the public. On-ice sessions are currently scheduled for:

TUESDAY, June 26 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
THURSDAY, June 28 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
SATURDAY, June 30 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
SUNDAY, July 1 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday sessions will see three groups go for roughly 30-45 minutes with media to follow.

The preliminary roster of attending players and a development camp schedule are attached. Please note that players will be available for interviews after the events/activities take place; please contact the Nashville Predators Communications Department for more information on specific events/activities.
