PLAYERS TO WATCH*

FLAMES: Sam Bennett, the fourth overall selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, is out to prove to the Flames brass that he belongs on their opening night roster and the Young Stars tournament is the first step in doing that. He will want to kick off his first NHL training camp with a bang, showing off his impressive skill set against other teams top prospects.

"When you get to play against the biggest rivals for the Flames, it's going to be exciting games," he said after fitness testing on Thursday.

"It's going to be a great experience to play against all the young players that are eventually going to be the stars of the league."

JETS: Like Bennett, Nikolaj Ehlers is out to crack the Jets lineup in October and this will be his first opportunity to don a Winnipeg jersey.

Yes, I mean I want to play, I want to give everything I have to make the team this year," Ehlers told media on Thursday.

"But I'm not the one making the decision. The only thing I can do is give my best every single day, every single practice, workout, game. And that's what I'm going to do."

Ehlers, a winger, posted 49 goals and 104 points in 63 games with the Halifax Mooseheads in the 2013-14 season. He was selected ninth overall in the draft.

*Both teams lineups are subject to change.
