ROCKET SPORTS MEDIA — On Sunday, the Laval Rocket announced a roster of 29 players invited to attend the team’s 2021 training camp. The camp, held at Place Bell in Laval, QC, will run from October 3-10.

Camp attendees will include 16 forwards, 10 defensemen, and three goaltenders, including seven players invited on a try-out basis.

According to the team’s press release, “Josh Brook and Joel Teasdale will
remain on the Canadiens roster (injured non-roster status). They will however continue their recovery period with the Rocket in Laval.”

The training camp roster is expected to grow by at least a few more numbers as the Montreal Canadiens continue to make final cuts to their roster through the last week of their NHL training camp.

What’s on the Schedule?

On-ice sessions for Laval’s training camp begin on Monday, October 4th and will be led by new Laval Rocket head coach Jean-Francois Houle, along with assistant coaches Kelly Buchberger, Martin Laperriere, and Marco Marciano.
