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 Sun's Lance Hornby reports Luca Caputi was forced to have his tailor let out the rear end of every one of his suits after his off-season conditioning program. I guess that's good?
