Devils rookies were at AmeriHealth Pavilion on Wednesday for the first day of on-ice work at training camp. The session opened with Devils goaltending coach Chris Terreri and new Albany goalie coach Johan Hedberg working with prospects Keith Kinkaid and Anthony Brodeur.

The first session’s forward group was Reid Boucher, Kelly Zajac, Darcy Zajac, Cam Janssen, David Wohlberg, Myles Bell, John Quenneville, Connor Chatham, Ben Johnson, Chris McKelvie and Tim Sestito. The defensemen were Dan Kelly, Raman Hrabarenka, Reece Scarlett, Corbin McPherson.
