The Leafs’ Rookie Camp Roster has been set – at least the preliminary roster has been set. Like last year, the Leafs’ rookies will be participating in a tournament against the prospects of the Buffalo Sabres, Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers. The Rookie Tournament is again taking place in Kitchener and will run from September 1st to September 4th . Here is an early look at Toronto’s probable roster.
Goaltenders: Sebastien Centomo, Jamie Hodson, and Jean-Francois Racine
Defensemen: Jean-Philippe Cote, Peter Reynolds, Allan Rourke, Petr Svoboda, Vaclav Zavoral, and Jonathan Zion.
Forwards: Brad Boyes, Luca Cereda, Miguel Delisle, Lance Galbraith, Jonathan Gagnon, Jacques Lariviere, Franticek Mrazek, Mirko Murovic, Alex Ponikarovsky, Vadim Sozinov, Michal Travnicek, Kris Vernarsky, Morgan WarrenSome of the bigger names in the Leafs’ system such as Jeff Farkas and Mikael Hakansson aren’t included above as they are going directly to the main training camp that opens at the conclusion of the Rookie Tournament. Other players may still be added to this roster at a later date.With special thanks to Brendan McCarthy of the St. John’s Telegram and to Karlo Berkovich of the Kitchener-Waterloo Record.
