On the eve of their 2021-22 Training Camp, the Tampa Bay Lightning announced the 60 players that will compete for spots on the roster for the upcoming season. Among the rostered veterans and recent draft picks, there are six non-contract invitees among the players that will be skating at the TGH IcePlex in Brandon.

The players will be split into three groups and take to the ice at different times throughout the day to help manage the chaos a bit. It’s an expanded group compared to the 43 that were in camp before last season. COVID protocols helped condense last year’s roster, but there was also the fact that there weren’t many spots up for grabs. With at least four forward spots being contested this year, the coaching staff is going to take a look at all of the eligible players.

Action on the ice will start up on Thursday after Wednesday’s media day. The first day of training camp is usually consumed with media and medical reviews. If there are any players that will miss time due to rehab, that news will trickle out on Wednesday. Thursday’s practice will kick off four straight days of on-ice work before a day off on Monday the 27th. Their first preseason game takes place on Tuesday the 28th.

The first round of cuts, mostly junior hockey players being sent back to their teams, should take place around then as well.
