*YOU GUYS. There are hockey players on the ice in Vorhees this week. Our long national nightmare is over! Well, one of them. Anyway, remember Andreas Lilja? I sure didn’t.

*Speaking of, if you’d like to head on over to Jersey and check out rookie camp, which has those aforementioned hockey players on the ice, here’s a full schedule of what will be going on and open to the public. [Flyers]

*And at the end of this week we’ll trade the rookies for the rest of the crew as training camp opens on the 14th. Let’s take a look at five questions facing the team as things get underway. [Philly.com]

*Obviously, the biggest thing we’re going to be watching for is which player will win that spot centering the third line. Watch for a BSH deep-dive into that very subject this week. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One guy who will certainly have a lot of eyes on him is Carter Hart, for whom this camp will be his first as a pro. [Flyers]

*Hart won’t be the only one to watch, as it’ll be fun to see how James van Riemsdyk fits in with this team and how much his particular skill set improves the top-six. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So...you may have heard, but Andrew MacDonald went and injured himself whilst working out this weekend. [BSH]

*Now that there’s a hole on defense for a little bit, who do we think its going to fill it? [Courier-Post]
