After their big come-from-behind win against the Winnipeg Jets, the Preds announced their first round of cuts. Most of these guys are travelling today so that they’ll be ready to go when the Admirals open their training camp tomorrow (Monday).
I don’t think any of these are surprising.
FORWARDS: Taylor Beck, Joel Champagne, Ryan Flynn, Jani Lajunen, Michael Latta, Juuso Puustinen, Josh Shalla, Robert Slaney, Mark Van Guilder
DEFENSEMEN: Taylor Aronson, Victor Bartley, Scott Ford, Jeff Foss, Charles-Olivier Roussel, Scott Valentine
GOALTENDERS: Atte Engren, Chet Pickard
PLACED ON NON-ROSTER INJURED LIST: Brodie Dupont, Ben Ryan
Notables still in camp: Gabriel Bourque, Blake Geoffrion, Chris Mueller, Craig Smith, Zach Stortini, Ryan Thang, Kyle Wilson, Mattias Ekholm, Ryan Ellis, Jack Hillen, Roman Josi, Tyler Sloan, Jeremy Smith.
Discussion: Will Chris Mueller start the season with the big club, as he’s currently the team leader in pre-season goals? Do Craig Smith and Ryan Ellis become the latest examples of how the road to Nashville goes through Milwaukee? Would you rather have Sloan or Hillen on the Admiral blue line? Which of the new guys that have been sent down are you most excited to see?
