It won’t take long for the Flyers to find out what they’re new draft picks are made of.

That’s because six of the seven selections from this past weekend’s NHL Entry Draft, among others, will be on hand when the 2019 Development Camp opens on Tuesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J.

The camp will last five days, including Thursday’s Trial at the Isle near Sea Isle City (to be exact, Stone Harbor), N.J. All sessions are free and open to the public.

On hand will be top draft pick Cam York and second-round choice Bobby Brink.

The camp will begin on Tuesday with the roster divided into three groups – one for defensemen and two for forwards. The groups will be on the ice between 9:15 and 11:30 a.m. and 4:30-5:45 p.m. on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday, the camp will shift to Stone Harbor for the team’s annual Trial on the Isle community event.

The camp participants will be participating in an autograph session at Stone Harbor Elementary School from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., with select prospects also taking part in the Flyers Community Caravan and Clinic for Kids at 12:45 p.m. From 3:30 – 5:00 p.m., the camp participants will be part of a beach volleyball tournament at 96th Street Beach.

For the final two days, the camp returns to Voorhees for morning practice sessions and evening scrimmages. Friday’s schedule includes morning practices from 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. and a 3-on-3 tournament from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m..

On Saturday, the morning practices are from 10:00 – 11:15 a.m., after which the camp will culminate with a full 5-on-5 scrimmage from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The schedule is subject to change, and updates will be available on and via the team’s social media channels.
