Bruins prospects Alexander Khokhlachev and Anthony Camara have been invited to the 2014 NHLPA Rookie Showcase, which will be held next Saturday at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto.

Khokhlachev and Camara, both of whom spent last season in Providence, will join a group of 31 other prospects that includes Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad, the No. 1 overall pick in June’€™s draft.

A Russian center, Khokhlachev was drafted 40th overall in the 2011 draft. After playing 11 games in Providence in 2012-13, he played all but one of his games last season in the AHL, scoring 21 goals and adding 36 assists for Providence. He played in his only NHL [1] game to date on April 13 last season.

The Bruins selected Camara in the third round of the same draft. A chippy left wing, Camara dominated in his fourth year of OHL play, scoring 36 goals with the Barrie Colts. In his first professional season, Camara notched nine goals and 13 assists for 22 points and 50 penalty minutes in 58 regular-season contests.

While Khokhlachev will compete with Ryan Spooner for a job in Boston next season, Camara is more likely to return to Providence.
