Per TSN’s Elliotte Friedman:
That means Chris Bourque, Carter Camper and Paul Carey are “officially” here in Hershey – but only two of the three are ACTUALLY here. Per head coach Troy Mann, Camper returned to his home state of Ohio to retrieve his family and is expected to join the team for tomorrow’s morning skate.
I met with Bourque today, and I cannot put into words how psyched he is to be here – I’m excited just writing about it! Just remember, Bears Nation, he is signed for TWO years. That’s TWO years of other teams ensuring that their defense is ramped up and ready, and TWO years to get this guy his fourth Calder Cup championship and the Hockey Club its 12th!
Roster update can be found here. 27 players is the total number now.
Again, please don’t put stock into the jersey numbers… these will likely change throughout camp.
I’ll share any more news once we get it, including any news from the side of tomorrow’s pre-season opener opponent, the Albany Devils.
