63 players will attend Philadelphia Flyers training camp, which opens TOMORROW at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philly. The team released the full, final camp roster on Wednesday morning. As follows:
Here's the roster in PDF form if you'd like to download it and take it to camp with you.
Just about every player on the roster is Flyers property in one way or the other -- either on an NHL contract, an AHL deal, or otherwise unsigned but with the organization through the draft.
(Technically speaking, Dan Cleary isn't Flyers property just yet -- here on an invite contract. But we all know that's just window dressing and that he'll be officially signing a contract at the end of camp.) And edit: Cleary isn't even coming at all, anymore.
Some of the names that aren't Flyers property, however, include ...
- Mark Nemec, a rookie camp invitee who apparently impressed enough to get more of a look in big camp.
- Todd Orlando, a guy who was playing men's league a few years back and impressively has worked his way to an NHL training camp roster. He's previously attended Rangers prospect camp.
There aren't many spots on the NHL roster for guys to win jobs, but a lot of these guys are searching for just some sort of professional job next season -- AHL, ECHL, whatever. There's a lot more to Flyers training camp than just what impacts the NHL level.
Here's the full camp schedule, which includes practices in Philly, Lake Placid and Voorhees.
