Today, the Boston Bruins announced they have trimmed their training camp roster by seven. With Fabian Lysell, Brett Harrison and Ryan Mast already sent back to their respective Canadian Hockey League squads today’s cuts, along with Callum Booth who has already cleared waivers, will attend the Providence Bruins training camp which begins Monday.
Those that were cut today include: Jeremy Brodeur, Jack Dougherty, Ian McKinnon, Andrew Peski, Eduards Tralmaks, Alex-Olivier Voyer and of course Booth. With the exception of Booth, all were on AHL contracts so the moves should come as no surprise.
Coach Bruce Cassidy has said that youngsters will get the opportunity to play in Monday’s exhibition game, so the next round of cuts likely won’t happen until then. It’s also likely the next round will be players on two-way contracts that do not require waivers.
Of course, there are others like Jack Studnicka who they want to have a longer look at with the big club that will be sticking around. Those that do require waivers such as Anton Blidh, Karson Kuhlman, Tyler Lewington, Troy Grosenick and others usually stick around closer to the end of camp as most teams place their prospects on waivers all at once.
There is still a large contingency at camp, but expect a more manageable number by Tuesday.
