The Montreal Canadiens have released a list of 61 players that will compete for roster spots when training camp begins on Thursday.
The Canadiens have six goaltenders, 19 defencemen and 36 forwards attending their training camp. Montreal will also have 16-of-23 players from rookie camp moving on to the main camp.
Newly-acquired forward Jonathan Drouin highlights the forwards attending camp this season. The Canadiens currently have him listed as a left-winger, but there’s a possibility that he will play centre under coach Claude Julien.
Karl Alzner, who joined the team on July 1 as a free agent, is also on the training camp roster.
Here is a full list of the Canadiens’ training camp attendees:
