Friday was originally planned as the day that the Nashville Predators' rookies and younger players would report to camp to seek furtherance of their career in the National Hockey League.

It turned out to be a horse of a different color with the pending lockout set for Saturday night at 11:59 p.m. CDT. Instead of heading to Smashville for a chance at "the show," twenty three players are headed elsewhere for the start of camp.

The Milwaukee Admirals will be the primary beneficiary of 22 top Preds prospects while recent signee, Colton Sissons, has been loaned to his junior team in the WHL.
