2013 Toronto Maple Leafs training camp roster
New Maple Leafs' coach Randy Carlyle has indicated he will be inviting 30 players to Toronto's shortened NHL training camp. As GM Brian Burke has already indicated juniors Morgan Reilly and David Broll with be invited, that leaves 28 more.
With Jake Gardiner injured, Luke Schenn gone, and Cody Franson unsigned, in the short term there may be as many as three spots open on the Toronto Maple Leafs backline, with Holzer, Kostka, Fraser and Ranger the main contenders for the spots.
1. Phil Kessel
2. Joffrey Lupul
4. Van Riemsdyk
29. James Reimer
30. Ben Scrivens
31. Jussi Rynnas
(If Luongo arrives via trade, Rynnas will stay with Marlies)
Injured: Jake Gardiner (D)
Unsigned: Cody Franson (D)
If Franson is signed and Gardiner soon returns, the defence will be quite deep, so a trade there is possible. If the NHL opts fopr expanded rosters for the first few weeks of the shortened NHL season, look for the Buds to break camp with 15 forwards, eight defenceman and two goalies, for a total of 25 active players, plus any injured guys.
Although Jason Arnott is still a free agent, he has been skating with his former team the Dallas Stars, so look for him to end up there.
