Red Wings Trim Training Camp Roster by 9

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today released forwards Mathieu Bizier, Thomas Casey, Cody Morgan, Owen Robinson and Chad Yetman, defensemen Marc-Olivier Duquette and Owen Lalonde and goaltenders Anthony Popovich and Sean Romeo from their amateur tryouts.

The Red Wings currently have 58 players on their training camp roster: 32 forwards, 20 defensemen and six goaltenders. Detroit will hold one more day of training camp at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City, Mich., on Monday, Sept. 16 before opening up a nine-game preseason slate against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Little Caesars Arena.

Of the nine released, the only one that might have garnered interest was Sean Romeo, who was a good part of the Wings’ victory in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament. Even with that, he didn’t really do enough to stand out and earn a spot in the current goaltending pipeline for the Wings.

More cuts likely tomorrow before the Wings play their first of nine preseason games, as we’ll start seeing kids get released to their juniors squads next.  Here’s where the roster stands right now:
