After completeing two
forgettable games against Nashville's youngsters, the first round of Florida's Rookie Camp cuts are in; twelve have been assigned to the main camp beginning Saturday in Coral Springs. The survivors as follow; (+) denotes invitee...
Forwards: Alain Berger (+), Evgeni Dadonov, Corey Durocher, Quinton Howden, John McFarland, Scott Timmins, Garrett Wilson
Defense: Adam Comrie, Erik Gudbranson, Alexander Petrovic, Colby Robak
Goal: Jacob Markstrom
The cuts: Carl Hudson, T.J. Fast, Josh Birkholz, Brody Sutter (+), Mike Vaskivuo (+), Benjamin Gallacher, Hayden Rintoul (+), A.J. Jenks, Yannick Dube (+), Zach Hyman, Chris Clackson (+), Eric Selleck, Marc Cheverie, Brian Foster
Outside of the invitees, few surprises remain among the cuts simply due to a numbers game; only so many spots to fill in Rochester and Sunrise. But c'mon...a couple of extra days for Jenks was out of the question? Or Birkholz?
Precisely why I'm not a scout; their efforts certainly appeared solid to my eyes the past few days.
