Yesterday started official on ice training camp, and today there are two more sessions open to the public at Anaheim Ice. Group B, sporting players such as Ryan Kesler, Patrick Maroon and Jakob Silfverberg (as a line) and John Gibson will go first today, starting at 9:45 am; while Group A, which yesterday included Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Dany Heatley (on a line together) as well as Sami Vatanen and Clayton Stoner (also together) with Frederik Andersen and Jason LaBarbera in the nets, among others, will be the afternoon session today starting at 1:15 pm.
You can check back for a collection miscellaneous twitter updates and videos from the team taken during the first two days of camp here, and read a first hand account of the first session from reader/podcast listener Bob Diluchio here.
The biggest news you need to know from the first two days is that neither Kyle Palmieri nor Shea Theodore are in camp due to ankle and elbow injuries, respectively. Palms injured his ankle in individual training over the summer and is expected to be out only two more weeks or so. Theodore's injury was suffered at last Sunday's Futures game and will keep him out 4-6 weeks.
We'll try to update this post as the day goes on, but probably not as much as yesterday since we plan on having a correspondent at each session with a scouting report later in the day or tomorrow morning. But feel free to comment on any updates that do come in over the twitters, or if you can get a data signal at Anaheim Ice and want to put your two cents in as well.

Here's a link to Cory's report from the Saturday Morning session, including Hampus Lindholm with Scotty, Francois Beauchemin looking good and Nick Ritchie on the bench more than expected.
I went to the afternoon session and have some notes on Kerdiles, Noesen and others which will be posted a little later. In the mean time....
UPDATE: A little late, but here are my thoughts from Saturday afternoon (as well as Sunday's open thread).
