Training Camp Invitations

Now that the kids are being reassigned to the minors and junior, GMs are identifying the holes in their rosters and the camp invitations are flying, more so than I remember in the past. Here's a list of free agents with NHL experience recently invited to audition for depth spots:

Boston Bruins: Glen Metropolit C
Calgary Flames: Krystofer Kolanos C
Columbus Blue Jackets: Joel Bouchard D
Dallas Stars: Philippe Sauve G
Detroit Red Wings: Jassen Cullimore D, Aaron Downey RW, Brent Sopel D
Edmonton Oilers: Rick Berry D, Anson Carter RW, Ben Simon C
Minnesota Wild: Barry Brust G
New York Islanders: Kip Brennan LW, Gordie Dwyer LW
New York Rangers: Francis Lessard RW, Mark Smith C
Philadelphia Flyers: Jesse Boulerice RW, Jim Dowd C, Rory Fitzpatrick D
Pittsburgh Penguins: Adam Hall RW
St. Louis Blues: David Tanabe D
San Jose Sharks: Sandis Ozolinsh D
Toronto Maple Leafs: Bryan Muir D, Bruno St. Jacques D
UPDATE - Vancouver Canucks: Dan McGillis
Washington Capitals: Scott Barney C, Chris McAllister D

While there's some notable names on the list (Carter, Ozolinsh, Sopel, Tanabe), most of these guys are fighting for an AHL roster spot in hopes of getting back to the show as a call-up.
