Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NHL Central Scouting's top three North American skaters for the 2014 NHL Draft were among the 41 players invited Monday to attend Hockey Canada's national junior team summer evaluation camp.

The camp will be held Aug. 3-8 in Brossard, Montreal, and Sherbrooke, Quebec, and is one of the first steps in building the team that will represent Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship, which will be played in Montreal and Toronto.

Centers Samuel Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs and Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice, along with defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts, were three of the 13 members of the 2014 draft class invited to the camp, including eight of Central Scouting's top nine North American skaters.

That starts June 27 when the first round is held at Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN). Rounds 2-7 will be conducted June 28 (10 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, NHLN-CA).

NHL.COM'S FINAL MOCK DRAFTS

NHL.com's draft experts have taken one last shot at predicting which teams will select which prospect.

The list includes three centers ranked in the top four of North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting: Samuel Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs, Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice, and Leon Draisaitl of the Prince Albert Raiders. Then there's Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts, who could be the first defenseman chosen with the No. 1 pick since the St. Louis Blues selected Erik Johnson with the first choice of the 2007 draft.

NHL.com

The Chicago Blackhawks will be the opponent for the Washington Capitals in the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

That's one of the highlights of the schedule for the 2014-15 NHL season, which was released Sunday. The Blackhawks and Capitals will meet on Jan. 1 in what has become the League's marquee regular-season game.

This will be the second Winter Classic for each team. Chicago played host to the Detroit Red Wings in 2009 at Wrigley Field, and the Capitals were at Heinz Field to play the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2011. The Blackhawks also participated in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series against the Penguins in the snow at Soldier Field.
