The Vancouver Canucks have just released their 2011 training camp schedule, with two of the dates open to the public. The camp will kick off on Friday, September 16th with a press conference, with the open practices taking place over the next two days. Fans can register for the open practices on the Canucks website. Doors open at 8:30 am on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th.

The team has also released the expected roster of players. While the press release indicates that 38 players plus prospects will attend the camp, the released roster has 40 players, with the late additions of Manny Legace and Steve Begin or the inclusion of the injured Ryan Kesler and Mason Raymond likely explaining the difference.

This list has 18 fewer players than the 58 with whom the Canucks opened last year’s training camp. If you’re wondering where the rest are, look to the prospects camp roster. An announcement will likely be made at the end of the Young Stars tournament in regards to which prospects are getting an invite to the main camp.

In the meantime, here is the complete training camp roster for the 2011 Vancouver Canucks.

    No Sauve or Sweatt, yet Raymond is on there?

      Sauve and Sweatt are attending the prospects camp and so do not appear on this roster. They will likely both be invited to the main camp.

        Scheisse. I still get confused by all the different camps. Hockey and burning man blur.

        Why the Raymond? Is he training?

          Gilman claims that both Kesler and Raymond are ahead of schedule and that Raymond is doing some cardio training right now. I don’t think they’ll actually participate in anything at camp, though. They might be on the roster because they’ll be there for the press conference and media availability.
