Here’s more, from the NHLPA:
Now in its fifth year, this unique event will once again provide Panini America and Upper Deck – the two official trading card partners of the NHLPA and the NHL – with an exclusive opportunity to photograph many of the game’s top young prospects/rookies in their official NHL team uniforms, in shots that will be used for upcoming trading card and memorabilia launches.
The list of invitees includes MacKinnon (Colorado), Barkov (Florida), Tyler Biggs (Maple Leafs), Brendan Gallagher (Canadiens), Jonathan Drouin (Lightning), Cory Conacher (Senators), Bo Horvat (Canucks), Sean Monahan (Flames), Malcolm Subban (Bruins), Christian Thomas (Canadiens), Adam Clendening (Blackhawks), Mathew Dumba (Wild), Mikhail Grigorenko (Sabres), Tomas Hertl (Sharks), Boone Jenner (Blue Jackets), Nic Jensen (Canucks), Danny Kristo (Rangers), Dylan McIlrath (Rangers), Mark McNeill (Blackhawks), Jon Merrill (Devils), Petr Mrazek (Red Wings), Valeri Nichushkin (Stars), Tanner Pearson (Kings), Derrick Pouliot (Penguins), Matt Puempel (Senators), Ty Rattie (Blues) and Tom Wilson (Capitals).
Of the group, eight have already made their NHL debuts. Six of them — Thomas, Grigorenko, Pearson, Jensen, Mrazek, and Wilson — had a limited impact last year; Gallagher earned a Calder Trophy nomination and Conacher finished third among all first-year scorers, with 29 points.
