Four of this year's draft selections will be among the 35 lucky souls who brave the 2012 Canucks Prospect Camp which opens today. The five day camp will include the typical fitness tests and ice drills and will end with the traditional Grouse Grind hike.

Via the Province, below are the two groups with those who aren't Canucks property (not signed nor drafted) having the asterisk.

GROUP A

DEFENCEMEN
Allen, Conor
Andersson, Peter
Blain, Jeremie*
Hutton, Ben
McEneny, Evan*
Taker, Shayne*

FORWARDS
Carrier, Alexandre*
Friesen, Alex
Hudson, Woody*
Jooris, Josh*
Langlois, Jeremy*
Mallet, Alexandre
Miller, Kenton*
Robinson, Buddy*
Westerholm, Pathrik

GOALTENDERS
Rumpel, Joel*
Walsh, Andrew*
Yanakeff, Will*



GROUP B

DEFENCEMEN
Baker, Jake*
Baldwin, Corbin*
Corrado, Frankie
DaSilva, Justin*
Rush, Cooper*
Zajac, Nolan*

FORWARDS
Bartliff, Kurtis*
Beattie, Matt
Franson, Cain*
Gaunce, Brendan
Hall, Zachary*
Jensen, Nicklas
Kambeitz, Adam*
LaBate, Joe
Momesso, Stefano*

GOALTENDERS
Cannata, Joe
Corbeil, Mathieu*

Some of those names should ring familiar: Nolan Zajac is the brother of Travis Zajac, Franson is the brother of Cody Franson and Stefano Momesso is the son of former Canuck Sergio f'ing Momesso which means he can walk onto the team right now and will be showered with immediate praise.

Canucks.com has some more stats on the group, including this horribly depressing tidbit about Evan McEneny, the youngest player at camp:

10 days before he was born ice hockey became Canada's official winter sport and 23 days after he entered the world, some team from New York won the Stanley Cup.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
