Projected lines for rookie camp

The Nashville Predators open up rookie camp Wednesday, September 4 in Nashville, then hit the ice the following day for a practice session before flying south to Sunrise, Florida for a tournament against Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning's rookies. The tournament will last from Friday, Sept. 6 through Sunday, Sept. 8. Afterwards, the camp will close out Tuesday before the start of training camp.

A total of twenty-two Predators prospects will be attending rookie camp prior to the start of training camp. Of the players invited, I have come up with projected lines for Nashville heading into their first match against the Florida Panthers.

NOTE: These are by far not official, but make the most since in my eyes.
