Nashville, Tenn. (June 20, 2016) – Many of the Nashville Predators top prospects – including former first-round pick Kevin Fiala, second rounders Vladislav Kamenev and Jack Dougherty, and many of the prospects to be selected by the club at this weekend’s 2016 Draft in Buffalo – will be on hand when the team’s 2016 Development Camp officially opens on Monday, June 27 with team presentations, off-ice testing and physicals. Prospects will take to ice for the first time on Tuesday morning, with on-ice sessions also scheduled for Wednesday, June 29 and Friday, July 1 at Centennial Sportsplex. The week will culminate with a scrimmage to be held Saturday, July 2 at Ford Ice Center (11 a.m. CT).
The purpose of the camp is to educate and direct players in their pro development and conditioning programs, and the week’s events will be presided over by Predators Director of Player Development Scott Nichol and Strength and Conditioning Coach David Good, with assistance from the rest of the Nashville Predators and Milwaukee Admirals (AHL Affiliate) coaching and hockey operations staffs. The scheduled training regimen includes a variety of on- and off-ice testing, dry-land activities and workouts, on-ice fundamentals work, video sessions, media and nutrition education, and team-building activities. The players will also receive instruction on training principles such as sport-specific power and strength enhancement, flexibility and off-ice conditioning.
Players will also participate in community relations activities on Thursday afternoon; a full release with times and locations will be available in the coming days.
