First Round of Cents Training Camp Cuts, Recent Moves:

The Cents pared their training camp roster down to 58 players (plus returnees and signees Jakob Reichert and Jared Andersen) today with the first round of cuts.

I had the chance to chat with Cents assistant coach Chad DeLeeuw after the last players were evaluated and released.
