The young prospects and minor leaguers in the Avalanche system take to the ice in Colorado this morning for the first day of Rookie Training Camp, which runs through Tuesday the 11th of September.
Standouts from the next four days of drills, exercises and more drills will be invited to train with the veterans once the actual team training camp begins this coming Friday.
Rookies with the best chance to get a shot at the top squad: TJ Hensick, Ray Macias, Nigel Williams and Chris Stewart, but I'm not ruling out any dark horses. Maybe someone else will surprise us and really stand out.
Get busy, boys. And good luck.
