It may be hot outside in New Jersey, but inside the RWJBarnabas Health Hockey House the air is cool as the sheet of ice is ready to host the Devils 2018 Development Camp. From July 10th to the 14th the Devils organization will be hosting 33 players at their annual camp. 

This year's roster has a healthy mix of returning players, invitees and first-timers for a four-day camp that will have the players working together both on and off the ice as they discover the hockey and personal skills it takes to make it to the NHL. 

Among the 33 players will be all five players that were selected in the 2018 draft, including first round pick, defenseman Ty Smith. Smith will be joined defenseman Xavier Bernard (fourth round), goaltender Akira Schmid (fifth round), forward Yegor Sharangovich (fifth round), center Mitchell Hoelscher (sixth round) and left wing Eetu Pakkila (seventh round), all from the same 2018 draft class. 

Smith won't be alone as a first round pick at camp, he'll be joined by two other first round draft picks in Mike McLeod and John Quenneville. McLeod is attending his third development camp, while Quenneville is attending his fifth. 

The Devils will also host five invitees, including the nephew of Binghamton coach Sergei Brylin, forward Max Andreev who has committed to Cornell for the upcoming season. Boston University forward Bobo Carpenter, son of former New Jersey Devil Bobby Carpenter, will be attending his second consecutive camp with New Jersey. Forward Max Veronneau who currently plays for Princeton will be on hand as will defensemen Jeremey Groleau and Michael Kim.  

There will be familiar names and faces as well from the Binghamton Devils. Forwards Nathan Bastian, Blake Speers and goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood will all be in attendance. 

Altogether the Devils will host 33 players that includes 19 forwards, 10 defensemen and four goalies.
