Lincoln, Neb. – The Lincoln Stars released their training camp roster on Wednesday, inviting 17 forwards, nine defensemen and two goalies to open the preseason.

Nine returners headline the roster, while 2016 Phase I first-round tender Christian Krygier and 2016 Phase II second rounder Gustaf Westlund look to make an immediate impact.

“We’re excited about this group. We think it will be a very competitive camp,” Stars GM Jon Hull said. “There’s a lot of spots up for grabs. The players who show up early and work hard are going to be the guys that stay here.”

Training camp will open on Monday, Aug. 22 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the John Breslow Ice Hockey Center. Camp is open the public. A complete schedule will be posted at a later date.

The Stars will release their 23-man roster on Sept. 20.
