The Tampa Bay Lightning’s offseason is coming to a close with the start of the 2013-14 training camp Sept. 11. The Lightning announced the 38-player roster not competing in prospect tournaments Sept. 6, with some familiar faces and some new. Including the players at the Coral Springs Prospect Tournament, there is plenty of competition, and a few players have the most to prove.
The Bolts training camp roster has just three forwards who didn’t see time in the NHL last season. The defense is pretty solid with just five players that didn’t see top-level ice last year.
In goal, the Lightning brought four goaltenders to camp, including Riku Helenius and Cedrick Desjardins to compete with the current tandem. This should be an exciting camp for Lightning fans. They should keep an eye on these players with the most to prove this training camp.
