2007-2008 Roster Update

Rumors had circulated for some time that Tony Romano would pack up his Big Red bag and move on to the icy pastures of the Ontario Hockey League. The London Knights put the rumor to rest when they announced yesterday that they had signed Tony to a free agent contract. Tony was a lot of fun to watch last season and BRP wishes him well in the future.

Cornell's roster now sits at 14 forwards, 8 defensmen, and 3 goalies. This appears to leave an opening for one forward, though Cornell has carried 14 forwards in 2 of the previous 4 seasons (2005-2006 & 2003-2004). With a total roster of 25, Cornell sits one below their average roster size, though last year was the first season out of the previous four that they had hit that number.

On the horizon...

2008-2009: (7-9)
  • F - Sean Collins
  • F - Locke Jillson
  • F - Jordan Kary
  • F - Chris Moulson
  • D - Braden Birch
  • D - Keir Ross
  • D - Sean Whitney
  • G - Michael Garman

    2009-2010: (6-7)
  • F - Erik Axell
  • F - Kevin Cole (could defer to 2010)
  • F - Vince Mihalek
  • D - Nick D'Agostino
  • D - Jarred Seymour (could defer to 2010)


    For 2008 & 2009, there are now 5 blueliners aboard (Braden Birch, Keir Ross, Sean Whitney, Nick D'Agostino, and Jarred Seymour), and the remaining need for the next two classes would seem to be some speedy goal scorers and another goalie. The Big Red would appear to be looking for another 1-2 forwards to join Sean Collins, Jordan Kary, Locke Jillson, and Chris Moulson in the 2008 class, though that depends upon whether there are any early departures. Among the defensive recruits there are 3 1989-born students and 2 born in 1990. It appears that, at least, one of the 1989-born defensive group could defer to 2009, and perhaps one of the 1990s will defer to 2010.
