Training camp officially opens in two weeks, but the Hurricanes announced the roster of 59 players who will be attending.
2008 draftees Zach Boychuk and Michal Jordan will be in attendance, but neither has any hope of making the big team. Sadly, Jordan will not be wearing the number 23. Boychuk will.
Worth watching will be a bevy of defensemen: Brett Carson, Bryan Rodney, Noah Babin, Mark Flood, Brett Bellemore. Also, a couple of defensemen who have already had a cup of coffee: Casey Borer and Tim Conboy. The once and future Hurricane Anton Babchuk is expected to earn a roster spot out of camp.
By far and away, the forward to watch will be 2007 first round selection Brandon Sutter, who has already been slotted into the starting lineup. In ink.
There are a handful of forward prospects who will also be worth watching: Mike Angeledis, Jakub Petruzalek, Drayson Bowman, Jerome Samson.
2008 second round draftee Zach Dalpe will not be present, as he is enrolled at Ohio State.
Jeff O'Neill will give it his best, but the odds are against him.
