While it appears the NHL may be headed to a lockout, the American Hockey League is set to begin its regular season on October 12, 2012. Under the guidance of new head coach Dean Chynoweth, the Lake Erie Monsters will open training camp on October 3rd. In addition to an intrasquad scrimmage, the club will also face the Grand Rapids Griffins in two pre-season games.
A list of camp participants will become available as camp approaches. However, I wrote a piece for Mile High Hockey a few weeks back on my early thoughts of a potential 2012-13 roster for Lake Erie.
