Joel Lowry – Mike Amadio – Jonny Brodzinski
Austin Wagner – Shane McColgan – Matt Schmalz
Sam Herr – Patrick Bjorkstrand – Miles Koules
Justin Gutierrez – Quentin Shore – Matt Luff
Alex Barre-Boulet – Kameron Kielly

Alex Lintuniemi – Paul LaDue
Damir Sharipzianov – Kale Clague

The majority of the first hour consisted of system drills before things broke off into battle drills.

A handful of players skated before rookie camp started at 10 a.m. PT, including Justin Auger, Nic Dowd, Derek Forbort, Kevin Gravel, Sean Backman, Zach Leslie and Vincent LoVerde. A few of those players stuck around to watch rookie camp from the boards.
