Before training camps open across the NHL, the National Hockey League Player Association (NHLPA) will host their 11th annual NHLPA Rookie Showcase. 

Attending will be 28 NHL prospects and rookies, including three from the New Jersey Devils organization.

2019 first-overall pick Jack Hughes is expected to be on hand, along with defensemen Ty Smith and Swedish forward Jesper Boqvist.

The event is an opportunity for Upper Deck to take photographs and video of the up-and-comers in the NHL, with the content collected used for an array of memorabilia including Upper Deck trading cards and digital video posts.

Typically, the event involves a group activity for the players as well as wrapping up with a team scrimmage.
