It may only be half way through the first three practices of the 2011-12 season but these sessions certainly aren’t lacking in physicality.

Group B is on the ice and no one, from NHLers like Dennis Wideman and Jeff Halpern to AHL mainstays Chris Bourque and Graham Mink, is hesitating to throw a check when the opportunity presents itself.

Here is the roster for the second group:


Defensemen: Wideman, Schultz, Stevenson, Carrier, Tabisz, Oreskovic, Baier

Goal: Holtby, Sabourin
