The final roster for the development camp has yet to be released, but typically includes most, if not all of the draft selections from the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.

It also looks like prospects that played for the Hershey Bears will also be in attendance.

There was some question as to whether the Bears extended postseason run would preclude certain prospects from participating in this years development camp.
