Wednesday, the Nashville Predators drop the puck for rookie camp with twenty-two prospects. Camp will last from Wednesday, September 4 through Tuesday, September 10. Of the twenty-two invitees, take a look at the three players to watch for during the practices and tournament in Sunrise, Florida.
Austin Watson, forward

Who backs up Pekka Rinne in Nashville is often a moot point. He plays in a vast majority of Predators games having appeared in 43 of 48 games last season and a league-high 73 games the last full 82-game season. So the No. 2 guy isn't called on often.
Which might be a good thing because the Predators don't have a lot of experience behind Rinne this season. With no other goalies...
