On The Farm: Comets Opening Night Roster

USA TODAY Sports

Generously provided by Mark Caswell and the folks in the Comets Front Office, look what found its way into my inbox yesterday morning.

The Utica Comets, American Hockey League affiliate of the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks, announced Friday its opening night roster for the team's inaugural season.

The team consists of 25 players: 13 forwards, 10 defensemen, and two goaltenders. Those players are:
Forwards: Darren Archibald, Ludwig Blomstrand, Brandon DeFazio, Benn Ferriero, Alex Friesen, Alexandre Grenier, Zach Hamill, Kellan Lain, Alexandre Mallet, David Pacan, Pascal Pelletier, Colin Stuart, Jeremy Welsh.

Defensemen: Peter Andersson, Alex Biega, Jeremie Blain, Frank Corrado, Sacha Guimond, Patrick Mullen, John Negrin, Adam Polasek, Yann Sauve, Henrik Tommernes

Goaltenders: Joacim Eriksson, Joe Cannata

The Comets lineup features 22 players under NHL contracts with Vancouver, and three players on AHL contracts: Sacha Guimond, John Negrin, and David Pacan.

For now, that's what i have. Will have more on the preseason game at Hamilton, as well as some other odds and ends at some point during the week.
