2013 Leafs Training Camp: Roster Released

Christian Petersen

The 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs training camp roster has been released and there aren't many surprises.

The 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs training camp roster has been revealed thanks to a tweet from must follow James Mirtle. There aren't really any surprises. There have been 18 forwards invites, 11 defencemen, and two goalies. There have been a limited number of Marlies invited which makes sense because they are on the road this week. Expect cuts to come pretty quickly as most battles are on the fringes of the team. Contract status will likely have the most impact on what players make the team. The Leafs will likely carry 23 players which means two goalies, 13/14 forwards, and 7/8 defencemen. I'd guess they go with the 13/8 option because Gardiner is still coming back from injury.

Jay McClement 11
Tim Connolly 12

Clarke MacArthur 16
Mike Brown 18
Joffrey Lupul 19
David Steckel 20
James van Riemsdyk 21
Keith Aucoin 23

Matt Frattin 39
Nikolai Kulemin 41
Tyler Bozak 42
Nazem Kadri 43
Leo Komarov 47
Ryan Hamilton 48
Phil Kessel 81
Mikhail Grabovski 84

According to CapGeek, the Leafs have 13 forwards on NHL deals in addition to Nazem Kadri and Leo Komarov who will either make the team or go back to Russia. Hamilton and Aucoin are getting looks because of really strong AHL seasons.

Defencemen

Player Number
Dion Phaneuf 3
Cody Franson 7
Mike Komisarek 8
John-Michael Liles 24
Mike Mottau 25
Carl Gunnarsson 36
Morgan Rielly 44
Mark Fraser 45
Jake Gardiner 51
Mike Kostka 53
Korbinian Holzer 55

Unless the Leafs are going to tell Komisarek to stay home eventually like the Rangers have done with Redden and Montreal with Scott Gomez then it'll be Kostka, Holzer, Fraser and Mottau fighting out for spots. Phaneuf, Komisarek, Liles, Gunnarsson, Franson, and Gardiner will make up the top six.

Goalies

Player Number
James Reimer 34
Ben Scrivens 30

No surprises. No Roberto Luongo...yet.
