The camp will be the first time Predators fans will be able to see the players drafted in 2015 in uniform, as all drafted players will be in attendance. Other notable names include fan-favorite and 2014 first round pick Kevin Fiala, Hobey Baker nominee Jimmy Vesey, AHL all-rookie player Viktor Arvidsson, and the Finnish goaltender prodigy Juuse Saros.

Some players new to the Predators organization include center/left wing Nick Saracino (almost a point a game playing for Providence College,) left defenseman Trevor Murphy (top 10 in points by a defenseman in the OHL last season,) newly signed left defenseman Kristian Nakyva out of the SHL, and newly signed ECHL goalie Brandon Whitney. Saracino and Murphy are all likely at camp for tryout purposes but no information has surfaced in that regard.

The full roster is listed below.
