Folks, it’s almost time for NHL hockey to return!
In advance of their Jan. 14 puck drop against the Jets, the Calgary Flames have unveiled their 2020-21 training camp roster!
The Flames have invited 41 players to camp – five goalies, 12 defensemen and 24 forwards, plus four players who will be late arrivals. The camp is limited to 36 skaters, so as the three late-arriving skaters arrive the club will have to cut skaters who are already in camp.
They have to unveil a cap compliant roster of 20 to 23 players by 3 p.m. MT on Jan. 12. They’re also required to carry between four and six players on their taxi squad, one of which will be a goaltender. (The taxi squad is basically an extension of their AHL roster, but hang out with the NHL team as extra bodies.)
