For the second year in a row, Brendan Shanahan and NHL executives will host their Research, Development and Orientation Camp to try out some of the rule change suggestions advanced by the various general managers. Again, the league has looked towards draft eligible prospects to use as their guinea pigs—they’ll be the hockey players trying the new rules out over the two day camp. While all of these prospects have been playing in front of scouts for years, many times this will be their chance to make a good first impression on the 30 general managers.

The list of prospects includes some of the very best draft-eligible players North America can offer. Nail Yakupov, Ryan Murray, Alexander Galchenyuk, Jacob Trouba, and Nick Ebert are all expected to be first round selections at the NHL Entry Draft next June. On the ice, the prospects will be led by Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma and Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett.
