The NHL's rookie camps finished up over the weekend, but not before the league's 32 gm's got a glimpse of the future.

In particular, the Philadelphia Flyers had five players, who might make the team's shortlist - to either make the team out of camp, or at the very least warrant a call-up, should injuries hit the Flyers lineup.

The top-five is comprised of one defenceman, three forwards and one goaltender:
