The New York Rangers will hold their week-long Prospects Development Camp beginning Monday, and now, we know the names.

The New York Rangers announced the roster for their annual post NHL Draft prospect development camp on Sunday morning.

The second-overall selection in this year’s draft, Kaapo Kakko, along with the other seven draft picks the Rangers made this past weekend will all attend the camp.

The Rangers invited 37 players to attend the “get to know you” camp that brings in the top prospects throughout the organization.

Twenty-eighteen first-round draft picks Vitali Kravtsov, K’Andre Miller and Nils Lundkvist will also be in attendance this week. Kravtsov recently signed an entry-level contract in May and is expected to be in training camp when it begins in September.

In goal, the Rangers future will be front and center as Adam Husk, who signed with the team towards the end of the season and played some games with the AHL Hartford Wolf Pack, will participate in camp.

The most anticipated moment for the organization will occur when Igor Shesterkin finally steps on North American ice for the first time in a Rangers sweater. The 24-year-old arrives after an impressive three years playing in the KHL.

Adam Fox, acquired by trade with the Carolina Hurricanes during the offseason, will also play in camp. The Harvard defenseman will forgo his senior year in college with hopes of grabbing one of the top-six defensive spots this season.

An interesting free agent invitee has a familiar name. Ty Amonte, the son of former Rangers Tony Amonte, will attend the camp this week. The forward recorded eight goals with 16 points while skating in 38 games for Boston University.
