The scheduling format hasn't been announced. The schedule will be released later this summer.

The meetings continue through Thursday.


Zack Stortini, who spent the latter part of the season with the Barons after being sent down from the Oilers, signed a one-year, two-way contract with Nashville on Tuesday.

Stortini, 25, had a goal and two assists in 29 games with the Barons last season after picking up four assists in 32 games with Edmonton.

Stortini's deal is worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $75,000 in the AHL.


The Edmonton Oilers continued their development camp in Alberta on Tuesday.

In addition to the young players looking to break through in the NHL was Oilers alternate captain Ales Hemsky.

Hemsky skated with the youngsters to test his surgically repaired shoulders.

Many of the players taking part in the camp figure to spend at least part of the year with the Barons.

Last year's participants included six players who spent lengthy times with the Barons, including Philippe Cornet, Teemu Hartikainen, Milan Kytnar, Jeff Petry and Chris VandeVelde.
