Detroit -- Forward Evgeny Svechnikov, the Red Wings' first-round pick in last week's NHL draft, will be among the players at the organization's development camp beginning this week in Traverse City.

The camp begins Friday and runs through next Tuesday.

Each of the first-round picks from the last three drafts will participate, including forward Anthony Mantha (2013) and center Dylan Larkin (Waterford / Michigan, 2014).

They'll be joined by all of the other Detroit selections from the 2015 draft: defenseman Vili Saarijarvi, goaltender Joren van Pottelberghe, forward Chase Pearson, defenseman Patrick Holway and forward Adam Marsh.

Other notable players scheduled to attend include center Andreas Ahanasiou, forward Tyler Bertuzzi, center Axel Holmstrom (Swedish junior hockey player of the year), defenseman Joe Hicketts, and forward Adam Lidstrom and defenseman Kevin Lidstrom, sons of Red Wings great Nicklas Lidstrom.

A total of 43 players (26 forwards, 13 defensemen, four goaltenders) are scheduled to attend.

The camp will be at Centre Ice Arena and features on-ice and off-ice workouts each day, including scrimmages July 4 and July 7, and an autograph session July 6.

Admission is $5 each day.
