The training camp roster is now down to 34 players, after cuts made today by the Nashville Predators.
Nashville, Tenn. (September 19, 2009) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned 10 players to the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL). Nashville's training camp roster now sits at 34 players: 21 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goaltenders.
Forwards Hugh Jessiman, Ryan Maki, Ian McKenzie and Mark Santorelli, defenseman Robert Dietrich and goaltenders Chet Pickard and Jeremy Smith were assigned to the Predators primary developmental affiliate, while defensemen Scott Ford, Mark Matheson and Russ Sinkewich were released from Professional Tryout Agreements, and will head to Milwaukee on minor league contracts.
No big surprises here (note that Mark Santorelli got sent down, not his brother Mike, who is trying to earn a Top Six winger job).
