Hartford Wolfpack announce training camp roster

September 18, 2013, by

The Hartford Wolfpack have announced their training camp roster, with camp set to begin tomorrow (on-ice on Friday). There are currently 30 players (18 forwards, 9 defensemen, 3 goalies) in camp for the Pack, but that number will change as players get cut by the Rangers and cut by the Pack. The training camp roster as of today:

Forwards: Sean Ambrosie, Scott Arnold, J.T. Barnett, Ryan Bourque, Andrew Carroll, Jean-Philipp Chabot, Brodie Dupont, Angelo Esposito, Tyler Gjurich, Brandon Hynes, Kyle Jean, Matt Kirzinger, Josh Nicholls, Shawn O’Donnell, Andrew Rowe, Michael St. Croix, Matt Thurber, Jason Wilson

Defense: Brad Cole, Jace Coyle, Charlie Dodero, Sam Klassen, Jason Lepine, Mike Marcou, Brendon Nash, Samuel Noreau, Bretton Stamler

Goal: Jeff Malcolm, Jason Missiaen, Scott Stajcer

Most of these names should look familiar, but it’s nice to see Brodie Dupont back with the Rangers organization. Also interesting to see Angelo Esposito –famous for being the top prospect sent to Atlanta from Pittsburgh for Marian Hossa– in camp as well.

    Isn’t this a huge number of players? Seems to me that Hartford has often had a relatively empty camp. And so many of these players are already under contract to the Wolfpack. I mean, won’t 15 of the 20 guys they suit each game be guys who are currently with the Rangers?

    Has there been a change in organizational philosophy?

    • Dave says:

      More guys will be there when the Rangers trim their roster again. Another 10 guys will be added. A lot of these guys could go to the AHL, but some are on tryouts without contracts (Esposito, Dupont).

      • Tim B says:

        I think Dupont and Esposito will make the team. Lots of new dmen. Lots of new forwards a well. Is Mackenzie Skapski in ECHL or something? Maybe Hartford can actually make it to the playoffs this year.
