Traverse City prospect roster

The Lightning will once again be participating in the prospects camp/tournament hosted annually by the Detroit Red Wings in Traverse City, Michigan. After some exhaustive research - or just a couple of inquiries, but definintely one of the two - I have managed to get a hold of the roster that the Lightning will enter the tournament with. Some familiar names here, some not so familiar. The one noticeable absences is Steven Stamkos, the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. Guess they got a good enough look at him in Victoria, and there’s no sense in putting him into a situation like this before Tampa Bay’s camp opens.

Note: There is one more player on the roster, but I’m awaiting confirmation on the name. I’ll post it as soon as I have the confirmation.

Here is the roster:
