Rookie Camp Ready to Start

RookieThe Panthers are gathering in Kitchener, Ontario, for their annual rookie camp with a number of the team's top young players taking advantage of the extra ice time in front of team management.

Some of them think they got a shot at making the team out of training camp this year, so good luck to them in that. Martin plans on bringing over 40 players to camp next week, so there is an opportunity out there to impress.

Some of the team's high-profile youngsters taking part: Kenndal McArdle, Michael Frolik, Shawn Matthias (picked up in Bertuzzi Trade II), Tyler Plante, David Shantz and Michal Repik.

The Panthers are joined at their camp by youngsters from the Penguins, Senators and Maple Leafs.

The schedule -- Today: Meetings, dinner; Thursday: Practice; Friday: Panthers vs. Ottawa, 2; Pens vs. Leafs, 6:30. Saturday: Panthers vs. Pens, 2; Sens vs. Leafs, 6:30; Sunday: Sens vs. Pens, 2; Panthers vs. Leafs, 6:30; Monday: Third place game, 2; Championship, 6:30.

All games are at the Kitchener Auditorium.

Will be on the road this weekend, but will try to give updates as much as possible.
