Syracuse Crunch announce 2014-15 training camp roster and schedule

The Syracuse Crunch -- and perhaps a few guys who might be Tampa Bay Lightning before the year's end -- are headed to Lyon, France for their training camp this year, continuing the tradition of a long away trip to start their season.

Lyon, France is a little bit further away from Syracuse than St. John's, Newfoundland.

But the Syracuse Crunch will carry on the tradition of a long, team-building road trip to start their year as training camp gets underway as the players arrive in Lyon today before their first exhibition game against the Binghamton Senators on Thursday.

From the release via the team:

The Syracuse Crunch open their 2014 Training Camp in Lyon, France on Tuesday, Sept. 30 with 25 players on the club's preseason roster. Of the 25 players, 15 appeared on the Crunch roster during the 2013-14 season. A complete roster is attached.

The training camp will highlight a season-long partnership between the Crunch and the Lyon Hockey Club Lions of the Magnus League, the top tier in France. The Lyon Hockey Club Lions are the Official 2014-15 season partner of the Syracuse Crunch and Tampa Bay Lightning. Syracuse will play three exhibitions games in Lyon at the Patinoire Charlemagne arena, two games against the Binghamton Senators and one game against the Lions.
