As we close in on the start of NHL training camps, most teams have their prospects participate in one of the many NHL rookie tournaments that take place before camp starts. I have found the schedules for these tournaments, to the best of my knowledge, and have compiled them here below. For those fans that want to watch these games, some of them are live streamed on the team's website, or other live stream platforms. Last year I watched quite a few rookie games, and hope to find streams of them again this year. Hockey is back in just a couple of days.

These are all the rookie games that I have been able to find. I could not find anything for the New York Islanders or Philadelphia Flyers, so I guess they are not participating. All times are local to where the game is being played. I apologize if there are any mistakes, I believe all the dates and times are correct. Hopefully some of these games are live streamed so fans can watch. I cannot wait for hockey to be back, even if it is just the rookies.
