Moncton released 11 players yesterday — goaltender Grant Grady, defencemen Julien Belliveau and Tanner McCabe and forwards Gabriel Gagne, Brett Arthur, Zachary Beaudoin, Alex Bradley, Josh Pugsley, Erik Robichaud, Zachary Whitlock and Liam Hynes.
In the today's newspaper.
GOALTENDERS(2): Brandon Thibeau (age 19, 5-foot-11 and 177 pounds, Wildcats) and Alex Dubeau (age 18, 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, Shawinigan QMJHL)
DEFENCEMEN(10): Patrick Downe (age 20, 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Wildcats); James Melindy (age 19, 6-foot-3 and 186 pounds, Wildcats); Danick Emond (age 19, 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, Wildcats); Cameron McDonald (age 19, 6-foot-1 and 184 pounds, Wildcats); Myles McGurty (age 18, 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Wildcats); Samuel Roussy (age 18, 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Wildcats); Brayden Wood (age 18, 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Wildcats); Jonathan Racine (age 19, 6-foot-2 and 189 pounds, Shawinigan QMJHL); Jake Primeau (age 18, 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, Ontario junior B) and Jacob Sweeney (age 17, 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Quebec midget espoirs)
FORWARDS(16): Alex Saulnier (age 20, six foot and 188 pounds, Wildcats); Allain Saulnier (age 20, six foot and 186 pounds, Wildcats); Mark Tremaine (age 18, 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, Wildcats); Ross Johnston (age 18, 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, Wildcats); Christophe Lalonde (age 18, 5-foot-10 and 179 pounds, Wildcats); Brett Malone (age 18, six foot and 192 pounds, Wildcats); Ryan Penny (age 18, 6-foot-1 and 193 pounds, Wildcats); Yannick Veilleux (age 19, 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds, Shawinigan QMJHL); Ivan Barbashev (age 17, 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Russian junior); Lindon Beckwith (age 18, 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds, Moncton midget AAA); Mitchell Deruelle (age 19, 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Pictou junior A); Kristopher Hodge (age 17, 6-foot-1 and 194 pounds, Saskatchewan midget AAA); Dmitrij Jaskin (age 19, 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds, Czech professional league); Stephen Johnson (age 17, 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, Moncton midget AAA); Mark Simpson (age 17, 6-foot-5 and 175 pounds, Saint John midget AAA) and David Stephens (age 18, 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, British Columbia junior A)
I'd bank on MacDonald , Beckwith and Johnson being the last cuts made. I think Flynn will start the season with 25 players. That leaves the roster looking something along these lines:
Veilleux - Saulnier - Saulnier
Deruelle - Barbashev- Jaski
Penny - Stephens - Johnston
Lalonde - Hodge - Malone
Tremaine - Simpson
* Could use:
1. Top pairing Offensize Defenceman to quaterback the PP
2. Top 6 winger to play along Barbashev and Jaskin
3. Back up goaltender cause things could get ugly if Dubeau got injured.
