Syracuse Crunch to begin training camp on Friday

Syracuse Crunch

The AHL affiliate for the Tampa Bay Lightning released it's training camp schedule and roster on Wednesday.

A full house of 10 defensemen, 16 forward and 3 goaltenders will participate in the 2012 Syracuse Crunch training camp starting on Friday at the War Memorial in Syracuse, New York.

A press release sent out by the Crunch highlighted the practice schedule over the weekend, and also revealed the full roster of camp invitees, including Brett Connolly, J.T. Brown and Keith Aulie, who were carried by the Tampa Bay Lightning at different points last season.

Players who do not make the Syracuse roster are likely heading to Estero and the Florida Everblades... But even that is not a guarantee, as the AHL being overstocked with locked-out NHL talent will push more AHL talent onto the ECHL rosters.

The full press release from the Crunch is below.
