Good morning all. The Colorado Avalanche open main training camp today at the Family Sports Center in Centennial. The team will be split up into a couple of groups with the first squad hitting the ice at 8:00am sharp local time.
Rosters can be found here by number, hopefully a list of the two groups will be released in some form later today.
Along with the Avs roster players and prospects, there are 5 guys on AHL contracts (Schumacher, Maggio, Petryk, Labrie, Hamonic), 2 professional try-outs (Skille, Meszaros) and one amateur try-out (Maheux). Prospect Kyle Wood (Hand injury - out until late October) and ATO Jan Mandat of Val d'Or (LBI) are not participating due to injury.
As we had at rookie camp, there will be a fair number of fans and media tweeting things of interest today, please feel free to add anything else of relevance.
Training camp wraps up tomorrow, beginning once again at 8:00am in the Mountain and the Burgundy-White game happens Sunday afternoon at DU's Magness Arena. First Pre-season game is Tuesday vs the Ducks.
