Nashville Predators Rookie Camp Details
The Nashville Predators released the information for their Rookie Camp that starts on September 10th at Centennial Sportsplex. The 24 players will practice on Thursday the 10th and Friday morning the 11th and they fly to Esteoro, FL for a rookie tournament against Tampa Bay, Florida and Washington rookies. Both practices are open to the public.
There is lots of excitement to see players that will soon be trying to win a spot on the Preds rosters this year or in the very near future. From the Predators Press Release:
The Predators team, comprised of signed and unsigned draft picks, free-agent signings and free-agent tryouts, will be coached by Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) Head Coach Dean Evason and assistant coach Stan Drulia. Among the 24 players scheduled to participate are first-round pick Kevin Fiala (11th overall in 2014), second-round selections Pontus Aberg (2012), Jack Dougherty (2014), Vladislav Kamenev (2014) and Yakov Trenin (2015), as well as goaltending prospect Juuse Saros making his North American professional debut.

The rookies will finish their tournament in Florida on the 15th with a game against Washington’s prospects and head back to Nashville for the opening of Predators Training camp on the 17th. They hit the ice on the 18th and play their first games on the 20th with a split squad double-header against Florida.
If you’ve had those Withdrawal Symptoms we wrote about earlier in the week, this might be just the cure you were looking for! We were really impressed with some of the youngsters during Prospect Week. It is sure fun speculating which of these players will be starting the season in Nashville.
