Chicago Wolves Announce Opening Night Roster For 2016-17 Season

The twelve prospects are:

#3, Tommy Vannelli (D)

#6, Vince Dunn (D) - rookie

#10, Conner Bleackley (C) - rookie

#14, Petteri Lindbohm (D)

#15, Mackenzie Maceachern (LW) - rookie

#17, Samuel Blais (LW) - rookie

#22, Ivan Barbashev (C)

#24, Jordan Schmaltz (D)

#28, Jacob Doty (RW)

#30, Ville Husso (G) - rookie

#31, Pheonix Copley (G)

#35, Jordan Binnington (G)

Five first-year pros, three more players (Vannelli, Barbashev, Schmaltz) in only their second pro year. Lindbohm, Schmaltz, Barbashev and Blais were among the very last cuts from the training camp roster by the Blues.

The future is bright.
