Canucks reduce training camp roster
The Vancouver Canucks reduced their training camp roster by seven players today.
Dan Gendur is going to the Manitoba Moose. Steven Anthony (Saint John Sea Dogs), Prab Rai (Seattle Thunderbirds), Morgan Clark (Swift Current Broncos) and Kellan Tochkin (Everett Silvertips) are going back to their junior teams. Nolan Toigo and Dusty Collins were released.
No big surprises here, though I was hoping to see Tochkin and Anthony in a preseason game or two. But then again, with so many more roster decisions to be made before October 1st, I understand that it is best that the Canucks see more of those who had realistic shots at making the team.

The Canucks made further cuts in the afternoon, sending Kevin Connauton back to the Vancouver Giants and releasing Marco Rosa.
