The Buffalo Sabres announced the roster for its development camp Friday morning.

The camp opens at First Niagara Center on Monday, featuring an intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. Tuesday. This marks the third year the Sabres will hold their summer development camp at First Niagara Center.

The 41-player roster will take part in both on-ice and off-ice workouts with the goal to show prospective players the basics of the Sabres’ system along with conditioning programs for NHL players.

The schedule: practice from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Monday; pre-scrimmage skates from 10:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Tuesday; Tuesday’s scrimmage at 7 p.m.; Wednesday is an off day; Thursday practices from 10:30 a.m. to noon and 1:30-3 p.m.; Friday three-on-three tournament from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Seven first-round selections taken by the Sabres will be at the camp: Mark Pysyk, Joel Armia, Mikhail Girgorenko, Zemgus Girgensons, Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov along with this year’s overall No. 2 pick Sam Reinhart.
