The schedule has been set for the 2022 NHL Prospects Showcase, hosted this year by the Carolina Hurricanes.

The showcase will be held Sept. 16-19, with the first-round games held at Invisalign Arena, the Canes’ practice facility in Morrisville, and at PNC Arena the final two rounds.

Admission to all games is free.

The Canes will open play Friday, Sept. 16 against the Florida Panthers, then face the Nashville Predators on Sept. 18, and Tampa Bay Lightning in their third game on Monday, Sept. 19. Saturday will be a practice day for the four teams.

Among those scheduled to play for the Canes are 12 drafted prospects including 2019 first-round pick Ryan Suzuki and second-round selections Noel Gunler (2020), Jamieson Rees (2019) and Vasily Ponomarev (2021). The remainder of the roster will be released later.

A year ago, forward Seth Jarvis used a strong performance in the showcase, hosted by Tampa Bay, to earn a spot in the Hurricanes’ training camp and eventually a roster spot.
