DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – The Detroit Red Wings announced Monday the addition of 21 players to the roster for its developmental camp, which begins Wednesday.

With 38 players total, the roster includes 22 forwards, 11 defensemen and five goalies. All eight of the Red Wings’ selections from the June 30 draft will be present at the camp.

The player facing the highest expectations – and presumably the one with the greatest upside – will be first-round selection Anthony Mantha. The Red Wings selected Mantha 20th overall in the draft after he scored 50 goals for Val d’Or Foreurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Besides living up to his status as a first-round draft pick, Mantha will be hard-pressed to continue an impressive family legacy – his grandfather, Andre Pronovost, won four Stanley Cups over 120 games with the Red Wings from 1962 to 1965.

Another player with Detroit history will be Tyler Bertuzzi, whose uncle, Todd Bertuzzi, plays forward for the Red Wings. Tyler, selected 58th overall, and Zach Nastasiuk, selected 48th overall, were the Red Wings’ second-round picks.

The Detroit Red Wings’ surprising postseason run in 2013 ended in late May after the team won its last four games of the regular season to make the playoffs, advanced to the conference semifinals and ultimately lost to the Chicago Blackhawks, who went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Fans can watch the first day of the Red Wings’ camp free at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City, Mich. Tickets can be purchased for $5 per day to watch the other days of camp.
