Canes Announce 23-man Traverse City Tournament Roster

The Carolina Hurricanes announced their 23-man roster, 13 of whom are draftees, for this year’s Traverse City Prospects Tournament.  The tournament, which runs from September 12 to September 16, is an effective outlet for teams and fans alike to observe important prospects prior to the season.

As promised, here is the Canes’ 23-man roster:

 

OFFENSE

DEFENSE

GOALIES

  • Phil Di Giuseppe (LW)      6’0”, 200 lbs
  • Patrick Brown (C)            6’1”, 210
  • Clark Bishop (C)              6’0”, 189
  • Victor Rask (C)              6’2”, 200
  • Brock McGinn (LW)          6’0”, 185
  • Brendan Woods (LW/C)  6’4”, 210
  • Sergey Tolchinsky (LW)  5’8”, 165
  • Brent Pedersen (LW)      6’2”, 210
  • Alex Aleardi (RW)            5’9”, 167
  • Carter Sandlak (LW)        6’2”, 200
  • Brady Vail (C)                6’1”, 190
  • Dryden Hunt (C)            5’11”, 195
  • Mathew Campagna (C)    6’0”, 185
  • Haydn Fleury                  6’3”, 207
  • Josh Wesley                    6’3”, 195
  • Dennis Robertson                6’1”, 215
  • Trevor Carrick                  6’2”, 180
  • Kyle Jenkins                      6’1”, 175
  • Tyler Ganly                      6’2”, 201
  • Jake Chelios                  6’2”, 185
  • Patrick McEachen            6’1”, 190
  • Alex Nedeljkovic           5’11”, 190
  • Daniel Altshuller             6’3”, 200

 

The Canes roster contains many expected names like recent first-round pick Haydn Fleury, promising youngsters Brock McGinn and Victor Rask, and goalies Nedeljkovic and Altshuller.  Among those offered a Tournament invite, the most interesting is most likely defenseman Jake Chelios.  Jake is the son of retired hockey great Chris Chelios.

Expectations are a bit melancholy at this point given the intermingling of draftees and invitees.  McGinn and Rask should be the bright spots, but others could assert themselves.  One can only hope that they perform well in front of our front office.  Hopefully, the future is bright.
