Trenton narrowed its roster by three players yesterday, releasing forwards Brett Valiquette and Garret Vassel and letting goalie Anthony Felice out of his tryout agreement.
Valiquette last played in the OJHL last year, while Vassel was looking to make his pro debut after playing collegiately at RPI. Felice will likely be back if Dave Caruso or Jeff Lerg were to get called up or injured, but only in an emergency role.
The roster looks like this right now…
Goaltenders (2): Dave Caruso, Jeff Lerg.
Defensemen (8): Gord Burnett, Justin Coutu, David Leaderer, Tyler Miller, Martin Nolet, Justin Pender, Jordon Southorn, Andy Thomas.
Forwards (12): Jeremy Akeson, Jean-Sebastien Berube, Ryan Ginand, Ryan Hayes, Matthew Kang, Trevor Kell, Matt Lombardi, Jeff Prough, Taylor Vichorek, Matt Vokes, Darcy Zajac, Tony Zancanaro.
I will likely be at the team’s morning practice tomorrow, so I’m hoping to have a lot more info then — as well as Thursday’s media day.
