What's the difference between rookie and prospect camp? The rookie camp I went to had prospects like Plante, Salak, Jenks, Kulikov, Ellerby, etc..
Prospect camp is basically a developmental camp where even the college guys who aren't on contract can come out to. It's where they do drills and the coaching staff works with guys and tells them what they need to improve for the summer/work on etc..Usually a lot of off-ice stuff is involved too, just teaching them how to be professionals since it involves a lot of the recently drafted guys.

Rookie camp starts a week before training camp usually, where all the young guys report early, take their physicals, and try to make it to the main camp. I don't think college players can attend this unless they give up their eligibility to sign.
