In what may be the final entry here is as much of the training camp roster as I could put together.
For those scoring at home it appears Nate Thompson changed uniform numbers to Wayne Merrick's old number eleven.
Not a sign he's about to be sent down with his two-way contract?
I'm not sure when this was written/posted by Islanders website or how updated because the article I linked yesterday has comments from London Knights general manager Mark Hunter that Islander draft pick Anton Klementyev will be attending training campbut in the ad for the Devils Coliseum game the Islanders website added in a training camp roster some players apparently invited are not listed yet.
For comparisons to the 2008 Training Camp roster which included Jared Spurgeon currently coming off shoulder surgery as of 8/31/09 and Jyri Niemi here in Moncton last season.
Jyri Niemi plays for the Saskatoon Blades which is where the Islanders will hold camp.
The Western Hockey League also released a full list of all the players attending NHL training camps on Tuesday 9/8.
Travis Hamonic, Niemi are listed as attending Islanders training camp and Hamonic is also listed in another article as leaving his team for camp this weekend here.
The OHL AND QMJHL websites at this time do not have a list but for what this is worth the Islanders prospect site has assigned numbershere for Calvin DeHaan (3), Casey Cizikas (53), Hamonic (36), Niemi (49), Klementyev (48), Jared Spurgeon (61) and goaltender Kevin Poulin. (60)
deHaan wore #24 with Oshawa so obviously these updates are not old despite 2002 pick Alexei Stonkus still on the prospect list.
This is the list off the Islanders ad for the Devils Coliseum game where it's listed as training camp roster.
12 Josh Bailey 67 Sean Bentivoglio 20 Sean Bergenheim 57 Blake Comeau 81 Justin DiBenedetto 41 Robin Figren 59 Micheal Haley 68 Bobby Hughes 7 Trent Hunter 28 Tim Jackman 58 Jesse Joensuu 50 Tomas Marcinko 46 Matt Martin 62 Greg Mauldin 27 Greg Moore 26 Matt Moulson 51 Frans Nielsen 21 Kyle Okposo 10 Richard Park "A" 40 Joel Rechlicz 17 Jeremy Reich 54 Tony Romano 16 Jon Sim 77 Trevor Smith 15 Jeff Tambellini 91 John Tavares 11 Nate Thompson 93 Doug Weight
Defensemen 4 Mark Flood 8 Bruno Gervais 38 Jack Hillen 71 Mark Katic 56 Dustin Kohn 47 Andrew MacDonald 24 Radek Martinek 44 Freddy Meyer 2 Mark Streit 25 Andy Sutton 42 Brett Westgarth 32 Brendan Witt "A"
Goalies 43 Martin Biron 39 Rick DiPietro 1 Mikko Koskinen 52 Nathan Lawson 33 Scott Munroe 30 Dwayne Roloson
For those who wonder how you divide five into four Utah signed two goaltenders over the summer so a home has to be found for Mikko Koskinen or someone out of Lawson/Munroe who both just signed or resigned and carried the bulk of their AHL teams games last season have to find another team.
Michael Fornabaio in the Ct PostSound Tigers blog also has his updated roster of signings and invites with both Utah goaltenders.
At this time unsigned former prospect Max Gratchev is not with Lewiston for their preseason, is not on any Islander or European transfer list (or KHL) nor is he listed as invited to any teams camp or at least one that made a large newspaper. If you recall he signed a late season ATO contract with Bridgeport and played in one game but the June deadline came and went so he could re-enter the draft but to my knowledge was not selected a second time.
Not the first time Maxim Gratchev has been lost according to 2007 Boston Globe pre-draft feature but this time hopefully only in terms of hockey status temporarily.
