The Adirondack Phantoms have officially announced their Opening Night roster for the 2012-13 season. The roster remains unchanged from earlier in the week when the team arrived in Glens Falls for the continuation of training camp.

The Phantoms official Opening Night roster includes 15 forwards, eight defensemen, and two goalies. Ten Phantoms have experience in the NHL including nine who played with the Flyers last year.

There will be plenty of recognition among Phantoms fans on this Adirondack roster: 20 out of the 25 on the roster have played for the Phantoms in the past including 18 players who were with the team last year.

The only minor change involves defenseman Jeff Dimmen who was previously on a tryout contract and has now been signed to an AHL contract with Adirondack.

35 - Cal Heeter
33 - Scott Munroe

3 - Marc-Andre Bourdon
42 - Jeff Dimmen

The Opening Night rosters were required to be filed to the AHL today as teams embark on the first games of season.

The Phantoms will be wearing retro-throwback jerseys of the Adirondack Red Wings that will be available to the fans via live auction immediately after the game. Phantoms magnet schedules will be given away courtesy of Great Meadow Federal Credit Union.
