DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today announced the schedule and preliminary roster for their 2017 Development Camp, which will be held at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City, Mich., from July 7-11. The camp begins on Friday, July 7 and features on-ice skill development and off-ice workouts each day, including a scrimmage on Sunday, July 9. The camp roster currently consists of 45 players: 21 forwards, 18 defensemen and six goaltenders.

The camp will be split into two sides, Team Zetterberg and Team Kronwall, and will feature daily on-ice instruction and skill development from a team of coaches, led by the Grand Rapids Griffins and Toledo Walleye coaching staffs. Attendees will also take part in NHL-level off-ice workouts and attend classes designed to help players transition to professional hockey, while receiving feedback from Red Wings coaches and management.

The Red Wings' two most recent first-round picks will be in attendance in defenseman Dennis Cholowski (20th overall in 2016) and center Michael Rasmussen (9th overall in 2017). Cholowski, 19, made his professional debut with the Griffins after completing his freshman season with the St. Cloud State University Huskies in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. Cholowski was fourth in scoring among the NCAA's 1998-born defensemen with 12 points (1-11-12) in 36 games. Rasmussen placed second on the Western Hockey League's Tri-City Americans with 32 goals in 2016-17, leading the team and tying for sixth in the league with 15 power-play goals. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound forward produced 55 points (32-23-55) in 50 games for Tri-City.

Including Rasmussen, each of the team's 11 selections from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft on June 23-24 at the United Center in Chicago are slated to be in attendance: forwards Lane Zablocki, Zach Gallant, Jack Adams and Brady Gilmour; defensemen Gustav Lindstrom, Kasper Kotkansalo, Malte Setkov, Cole Fraser and Reilly Webb; and goaltender Keith Petruzzelli. The camp also includes all seven players the Red Wings drafted in 2016, four drafted in 2015, two drafted in 2014, one drafted in 2013 and a pair of prospects recently signed by the team as free agents: defenseman Libor Sulak, who cracked the Czech Republic national team's lineup at the 2017 IIHF World Championship after spending two seasons for Orli Znojmo in the top Austrian professional league and winning the league's rookie of the year award in 2015-16, and goaltender Matej Machovsky, a 2016 Development Camp attendee who has won 94 professional games over the past four years for HC Plzen in the Czech Republic and represented the Czechs at the 2016 IIHF World Championship.

Centre Ice Arena has annually hosted Red Wings events since 1997, including Development Camp and an NHL Prospect Tournament that has expanded to eight teams, held in September before Detroit's main training camp. All development practices are open to the public. Tickets are available in-person only at Centre Ice Arena for $5 per day on each day of the event. Centre Ice Arena is located at 1600 Chartwell Drive in Traverse City, Mich.
