  • Print

The Winnipeg Jets and the rest of the National Hockey League may be locked out, but affiliates across the American Hockey League – including the St. John’s IceCaps – will be reporting for work as usual on October 1.

The IceCaps announced their training camp roster and schedule on Tuesday and many of the names will be familiar to Jet fans.

Camp opens next Monday in Corner Brook and, in addition to the usual training sessions and two intra-squad games, the IceCaps will play a three-game exhibition series against the Syracuse Crunch called the Mary Brown’s Cup -- Oct. 4 in Corner Brook, Oct. 5 in Stephenville and Oct. 7 in Clarenville.

The IceCaps have invited 40 players to camp, including Alex Burmistrov, the only player who spent all of last season with the Jets. The club will be split into two training groups.

Here is the list of players invited (listed alphabetically):

Goaltenders: Chris Carrozzi, Mark Dekanich, Eddie Pasquale and Tyler Plante.

Defencemen: Dean Arsene, Ben Chiarot, Ryan Donald, Chris Huxley, Jake Marto, Derek Meech, Julian Melchiori, Will O’Neill, Paul Postma, Travis Ramsey, Zach Redmond and Cody Sol.

Forwards: John Albert, Alex Burmistrov, Kevin Clark, Patrice Cormier, Norm Ezekiel, Aaron Gagnon, Jason Gregoire, Brayden Irwin, Jason Jaffray, Ray Kaunisto, Jason King, Carl Klingberg, Josh Lunden, Maxime Macenauer, Spencer Machacek, Ben Maxwell, Eric O’Dell, Ray Sawada, Ryan Schnell, Joey Sides, Brian Sutherby, Ivan Telegin, Hunter Tremblay and Derek Whitmore.
