Hitting the Links: It's the first day of Rookie Camp! edition

Bruins prospect camp opens today. Last year, the big draw was the first time Bruins fans got to see Tyler Seguin, and hundreds of people packed tiny Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington to get a look. With the desperation level a little lower and the prospects like Dougie Hamilton not being quite so high-profile this year, don't expect quite so big a crowd - but for the hockey-starved among us, it's a great way to kill a few hours and see the guys who could be playing for this team in the very near future.
