The Penguins' annual development camp will feature a July 19 scrimmage open to the public.
The 3 p.m. scrimmage at Consol Energy Center that wraps up the camp will be free, as will parking in arena surface lots.
Among the prospects expected to attend are winger Kaspari Kapanen, the team's 2014 first-round draft pick, and goaltender Tristan Jarry, a second-round draft pick last year who helped the Edmonton Oil Kings win the Memorial Cup junior championship.
Also attending will be defenseman Derrick Pouliot, considered the Penguins' top prospect. He won't participate in the on-ice portions of the camp, however, because he is recovering from shoulder surgery.
The on-ice portion of the camp will be run by Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coach John Hynes and his American Hockey League staff. Hynes was an early candidate for the Penguins‘ coaching job that eventually went to Mike Johnston.
The off-ice portion of the camp will be run by assistant general managers Tom Fitzgerald and Bill Guerin.
