A lot of roster news was announced over the last few days so this is going to be a long post, and here we go.
-The team signed rookie forward Jason Reese, stats here, and this will be his first professional season. He has played in the WHL for the last few seasons.
The Albany River Rats sent a couple of guys down from their training camp to the Everblades. They are as follows...
-Goalie Mike Morrison, stats here. He was already announced a while ago.
-Forward Milan Gajic, stats here. I'm so glad he's back, he was totally in my top five favorites last season.
-Forward Jacob Micflikier, stats here. Also happy to have him back.
-Forward Rob Hennigar (It's embarrassing how much trouble I had spelling his name, especially when I've already typed Gajic's and Micflikier's names), stats here.
-And, Defenseman Elgin Reid, stats here. He played for the Wheeling Nailers last season, I'm going to be very tempted to ask about whether he had an urge to punch Luca Caputi, I'm pretty sure a lot of guys do.
The team also announced some training camp invites as well...
-Goalie Nate Zervos, I can't find his stats at HockeyDB so no stats here.
-Forward Richard Rochefort, stats here. His HockeyDB stats don't show that he spent the last two seasons in Japan playing for the Seibu Prince Rabbits, the name is real and you have to check out some of the other names listed at the bottom of the Wikipedia page (seriously, paper cranes?).
-Defenseman Anthony Aiello, stats here. He's just out of Boston College, and if he is offered a contract this will be his first season of professional hockey.
-Finally defenseman Frank Grzeszczak, stats here. Interesting fact, he was born in Plantation, Florida. Not that it really matters, He just needs to skate.
Now, I'm totally exhausted from writing all of that, and I'm sorry you read all of that. I hope to have a really special post up next week, at some point, in honor of the season finally getting underway. If you don't want to keep checking back you can always follow the blog on Twitter!
