So, being that I like watching things fall into nice, little categories, I’ve made a spreadsheet containing the names and positions of all the players invited to training camp (or prospect camp…or the summer camp that took place in July…) so that we can watch how the cuts unfold and visually see our team coming together.
Obviously, we’re all pretty sure what the NHL roster will look like come October, but it always nice to see the order in which players are cut. I’m sure we’re all aware that the final cuts last season were Ville Leino, Darren Helm, Jonathan Ericsson, and Aaron Downey. But did you know that Cory Emmerton, Jan Mursak and Mattias Ritola made it all the way through the pre-season?
With that in mind, I’d like to introduce the Training Camp Roster for your enjoyment. It will be available on the right hand side of this page, under “PERMANENT FEATURES” until the opening of the regular season, when it will be replaced with an active roster document.
Player names marked with an asterisk are tryouts, not currently under contract with (or property of) the Red Wings.
