Blackhawks announce 52 players invited to training camp

We officially know the 52 guys who will be at training camp later on Thursday, including the surprise presence of Cam Barker.

The Chicago Blackhawks officially released their complete roster for training camp at the University of Notre Dame on Thursday. A total of 52 players will be convening for the next few days in the run up to next week's preseason opener, including former defenseman Cam Barker.

In a somewhat unexpected move, Barker will be attending training camp with the team hoping to crack into Chicago's deep d-man rotation. The 28-year-old spent the first few years of his career with the Hawks before being dealt to Minnesota as part of the deal that reeled in Nick Leddy.

Barker has become something of a journeyman the past few years, however, and didn't even play in the NHL last season. His last stint came with the Canucks in 2012-13, though he only appeared in 14 games.

Here's the complete roster, via the Chicago Tribune:


Cody Bass, Bryan Bickell, Alex Broadhurst, Matt Carey, Phillip Danualt, Ryan Hartman, Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, Marcus Kruger, Pierre-Cedric Labrie, Drew LeBlanc, Brandon Mashinter, Mark McNeill, Jeremy Morin, Joakim Nordstrom, Dennis Rasmussen, Peter Regin, Brad Richards, Garret Ross, Brandon Saad, Ryan Schnell, Patrick Sharp, Andrew Shaw, Ben Smith, Teuvo Teravainen, Jonathan Toews, Kris Versteeg.


Mathieu Briseboi, Cam Barker, Adam Clendening, Kyle Cumiskey, Klas Dahlbeck, Dillon Fournierm Kirill Gotovets, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Justin Holl, Stephen Johns, Duncan Keith, Nick Leddy, Zach Miskovic, Johnny Oduya, Michal Rozsival, David Rundblad, Brent Seabrook, Viktor Svedberg, Trevor van Riemsdyk.


Mac Carruth, Corey Crawford, Scott Darling, Michael Leighton, Antti Raanta, Kent Simpson.
