NHL Camp Updates

NHL Teams are starting to release their Main Camp Lists. NHL Teams have until September 30th to trim their rosters to 23 players.

St. Louis
Free Agent Jake Doty has made the Blues Main Camp. Opens up a better chance of a contract if he impresses.

The Blues have updated their Training Camp Roster to 53 players and Valk is not on the list. I assume he is on his way back to Tigertown.

St. Louis has 45 guys (limit 50) under contract.

Both Tyler Lewington and Boston Leier have made main camp.

Leier made it as a free agent. Opens up a chance of  contract possibilities if he impresses. Washington has 46 guys signed under contracts(limit 50)

 His cousin Taylor Leier signed a 3 year ELC with the Flyers yesterday.

The Wild released their Prospect Additions to Main Camp and Miles Koules is not on the list. He should be back in Tiger Town Shortly. 

San Jose
Jensen did not get an invite to main camp

Winnepeg (Will release Training camp roster Wednesday)
Expected to be coming back to TigerTown.


Kyle Becker - Invited To Main Camp

Marek Langhamer - Not Listed in Phoenix Main Camp roster. Should be coming back to Tigertown

Unfortunately Cam Lanigan was relegated to a backup role for the Prospect Tournament and did not see any icetime.

He will be headed to Grand Rapid and try to earn an AHL contract.

Kyle Becker has made main camp in Anaheim

Figures I finally step away from a computer and refreshing Anaheim's page and they post literally 5 minutes later.

TigerTurf said...

Also Phoenix Roster is out and no Langhamer.

However a Former Tigers Daine Todd is listed as a defenseman on their camp invitess.

Was Todd not a forward for the Tigers?

TigerTurf said...

I believe he was but converted in CIS hockey.

Is their a chance that any of these guys that made Main Camp will not come back?

TigerTurf said...

The players that made main camp have a heightened chance at a possible contract...The NHL teams wouldn't invite junior free agents to camp if they didn't see something in them.

Leier being a 20 yr old I still think he will be back but it increases the chance something happens with him. Same with Doty.

Shinkaruk will probably be back eventually but could have an extended look in camp.

Becker is 19 so even if he gets a contract he should be back.

I'm interested to see your projections on the lines

No official roster for the Jets, or SHarks, but I don't believe stanton or jensen were invited to main camp.

Sharks training camp roster came out tonight and Jensen isn't on there. Same with the Jets as I don't see Stanton on there either. Gotta think they'll both be in the city sometime before Saturday.

TigerTurf said...

I see a list for san jose, but no official list for Winnipeg although their first day of main camp was today.

Tigers lost 5-2 in lethbridge last night.

They were without their 10 players who were away at NHL Camps.

Lethbridge was missing 5 of their key players: Laurencelle, Ramsay, Pilon,Hackman, Blomqvist, and another veteran Harper.

The MH News had an article yesterday about Langhamer not back yet, and might not be back for a bit.

I don't see him on the phoenix roster, or the list of players on teams in training camp.

They did confirm Stanton is expected back.
