The First Cut is the Deepest

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Penguins make their first round of cuts in preparation for the start of AHL Training Camp this weekend.

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of roster cuts for the 2014-15 Training Camp has been made this morning. The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they have reduced the roster to 37 players. The AHL Training Camp for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins begins with team meetings on Friday, so we had assumed the first cuts would happen either today or tomorrow. The next cuts are likely to happen sometime after Game 4, as they are usually more or less done evaluating players by then.

Goaltenders

Matthew Murray and Eric Hartzell were assigned to the WBS Baby Pens.

Tristan Jarry was returned to the WHL Edmonton Oil Kings.

Defensemen

Nick D`Agostino and Harrison Ruopp were assigned to the WBS Baby Pens.

Alex Boak and Clark Seymour were released from their PTOs and were assigned to the WBS Baby Pens.

Forwards

Scott Wilson, Josh Archibald, Anton Zlobin, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Matia Marcantuoni, Tom Kuhnhackl, Adam Payerl, Bryan Rust, and Nick Drazenovic were assigned to the WBS Baby Pens.

Tom Kostopoulos and Conor Sheary were released from their PTOs and were assigned to the WBS Baby Pens.

WBS Training Camp

Most of the roster has not been announced, but in addition to the 13 players that were assigned to WBS, the 4 PTOs are playing under AHL contracts with WBS, and both Patrick McGrath and Tyler Murovich were invited as PTOs. Chances are they will also have a few Nailers on PTOs, as well as Carter Rowney who is playing on an AHL contract but didn't get invited to NHL Training Camp.
