It was a busy day in Leafland yesterday with 12 cuts (so long Michael Liambas) and a 3-2 shootout victory over the Broad Street Bullies in London.
It was quite the performance for off-season acquisition Colby Armstrong, scoring the tying goal in the third before ending a marathon shootout in the eleventh round. Defenceman Luke Schenn was also impressive, showing a little fire in his belly early in the preseason with a number of big collisions and a fight.
Mirtle is going to keep a running tab of camp cuts for you here.
The roster for tonight's rematch with Philly:
Versteeg, Bozak, Kessel
Kulemin, Grabovski, MacArthur
Hamilton, Brent, Crabb
Orr, Primeau, Brown
