Patiently waiting.....

...for the release of the Stars 25 player protected roster. Okay, maybe not "patiently." :)

From what I gather, the Stars had until 7/1 to send in the 25 player roster to the USHL. Normally, the roster is released to the public soon after the 7/1 deadline. I'm not sure what the delay is, but I really thought we would have seen it by now. Regardless, I thought I'd throw an "educated" guess out there and post my prediction for the 25 player protected roster.

Here we go.

G - Steve Racine
G - Jared Coreau
D - Cory Hibbeler
D - Matt Bruneteau
D - Dax Lauwers
D - Dan Weissenhofer
D - Will Rayner
D - Nate Baumbick
D - Steve West
F - Garrett Peterson
F - David Gerths
F - Brett Chartier
F - Corey Chakeen
F - Jimmy Siers
F - John McCarron
F - Kyle Gibbons
F - William Brockett
F - Jarrod Mermis
F - Jared Hanson
F - Tyler Underhill
F - Brent Tate
F - Matt White
F - Andrew Ammon
F - Michael Ambrosia
F - Corban Knight

I think the two players on that list that are most doubtful to be on that roster are Steve West, and Corban Knight. West was an early draft pick, but was not present at the June tryouts in Omaha. He played for Ohio State last season, and I have not heard anything in regards to him leaving school. Corban Knight was a player I just recently blogged about, but it appears he could be staying in Canada to play his last year of junior hockey closer to home.

Hopefully we'll get to see the real roster soon. As always, as soon as I am made aware of it...I'll post it here. Go Stars.
