I will be back shortly with some thoughts on the moves, but the team has shipped out 13 players to their Wilkes Barre-Scranton Affiliate and or their respective junior teams. Amongst the cuts is former first round pick Simon Despres, who hasn’t had an overly impressive training camp. The moves leave 42 players on the training camp roster.
The official release from the team is below…
