Lightning fans will recognize many of the same faces from the team that carried the Bolts to within one game of the Stanley Cup Final in 2011. Captain Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos, Nate Thompson, Teddy Purcell, Ryan Malone and more return up front along with a group of high-end prospects that include Carter Ashton, Brett Connolly, Vladislav Namestnikov and Richard Panik. On the blue line, the Lightning will have a few new faces that include Matt Gilroy who comes in after spending last season with the New York Rangers as well as Bruno Gervais who skated with the New York Islanders in 2010-11. They join a defensive corps that already includes Eric Brewer, Victor Hedman, Brett Clark, Mattias Ohlund, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Pavel Kubina and more. Between the pipes, Dwayne Roloson returns as the incumbent while offseason signing Mathieu Garon enters his first Lightning camp after tending nets for the Columbus Blue Jackets last season.

In all, the Lightning training camp roster includes 58 players, made up of 34 forwards, 19 defensemen and five goaltenders. A total of 20 players who played in at least one game with Tampa Bay last season will be at the Ice Sports Forum for the start of training camp.

All on-ice sessions are open to the public. A full schedule and fan activities will be announced at a later date.
