The Canadiens prospects will first take to the ice on Monday, July 6th, at 1:30 p.m. The development camp consists of on-ice sessions every day until July 12th with on-ice sessions on both surfaces of the Bell Sports Complex. Off-ice conditioning sessions are also scheduled every day. An intersquad game is scheduled for Saturday, July 11th.

The group includes first round picks Louis Leblanc, Max Pacioretty and David Fischer, as well as prospects P.K. Subban, Olivier Fortier and Yannick Weber. 24 of the 40 players also participated in the 2008 Development Camp.
