Rats' camp starts Wednesday

The River Rats' training camp will kick off this Wednesday at 1pm at the RPI Field House.

There are presently 19 players ready to participate, including two surprise additions: forward Milan Gajic, who played 27 games with the Florida Everblades last season, and D-man Elgin Reid, who notched 47 games last year with the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers and skated for Carolina this summer at the Traverse City prospects tournament.

The group will also include goaltenders Mike Murphy and Mike Morrison, defensemen Zack Fitzgerald, Jonathan Paiement, Brett Bellemore and Benn Olson, and forwards Mike Angelidis, Nicolas Blanchard, Nick Dodge, Jerome Samson, Chris Terry, Stefan Chaput, Rob Hennigar, Matthew Pistilli, Harrison Reed, Jacob Micflikier and Brad Herauf.

Another wave of skaters will likely be sent from Carolina following tonight's preseason game against the Atlanta Thrashers.
