Your Halifax Mooseheads released the roster for their 2015-16 training camp today.

The camp roster includes 48 players broken down to 7 goaltenders, 26 forwards and 15 defenceman. It consists of 20 returning players, 24 Mooseheads draftees and a free agent invites. Halifax will be looking for offensive power and some good young blueliners. Unless one of the young goalies impresses quite well, sounds like the Herd will be going with the same tandem they had last season; Eric Brassard and Kevin Resop. With Nikolaj Ehlers likely to make the jump to the pros this year; that leaves a big gap in the scoring department and also opens up an import spot for Otto Somppi who looks to be joining Timo Meier in both those areas left by Ehlers.

Here’s the roster:
Ilya Putinsev                    Kelly Bent                     Brett Crossley
Maxime Fortier                Jordan King                  Dominik Blain-Dupuis
Andrew Shewfelt             Timo Meier                   Gabriel Vanier
Marc-Olivier Gilbert         Vincent Watt                 Eddie Banville
Connor Moynihan           Brandon Vuic                Tristan Tardif
Makail Parker                  Arnaud Durandeau       Drew Packman
Dallas Farrell                   Ryan MacDonald          Joel Bishop
Ben Higgins                    Sam LeBlanc                 Blake Fudge
Danny Moynihan             Otto Somppi
Mathieu Charlesbois      Denis Toner                  Cody Donaghey
Cooper Jones                Nicholas Gibson            Jean-Sebastien Taillefer
Taylor Ford                    Brandon Worthen          Cavan Fitzgerald
Josh Fitzgerald              Domenico Argento        Morgan Nauss
Sam Hunter                   Jordan Lepage              Walter Flower
Raphael Blais                Kirklin Allen                    Eric Brassard
Jean-Philippe Brais       Kevin Martin                   Kevin Resop
Ryan Huestis

Otto Somppi will not be at camp until August 18 while Jordan Lepage is injured but will still attend.

I will release more details on training camp in the coming days including the first week’s schedule and breaking down the intra-squad game rosters.
