I’ve been asked a few times about next week’s development camp schedule, and while the roster and exact groups haven’t yet been finalized, I am able to share the following information:
-There will be morning and afternoon on-ice sessions. The morning sessions will be divided into groups of forwards, defensemen and goalies and will run from 7:45 a.m. through noon starting on Monday. In the afternoon, all three groups will skate together beginning at roughly 3:15 p.m. and ending at approximately 5:00 p.m. Should there be a change, I’ll do my best to update the blog and Twitter as soon as I get the information, but be aware that times and schedules often change without notice. Open media availability is scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday, July 7.
-All on-ice sessions take place at Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo and are open to the public (but, to be clear, players won’t be handling pucks for the entirety of the week’s sessions). Prepare for some down time.
-I’ll share the roster from TSC on Monday. As noted, it’s still in the process of being finalized.
-As always, LA Kings Insider will be on hand to continue to familiarize the fanbase to the club’s prospect group. Because this is development camp and not training camp, the full stable of prospects may participate (i.e. college prospects, who you won’t see during training camp, are able to take part). Expect an array of players who are in the system (including some who recently won a Calder Cup with Manchester), players who have been drafted but have not signed, and non-roster camp invites to take part.
Enjoy your Fourth of July weekend, Insiders!
