The Hitmen kick off their 25th season

The preparations are complete and the Calgary Hitmen are set to begin their 25th season in the Western Hockey League on Saturday evening when they visit the Swift Current Broncos. After a pretty eventful 2018-19 season, the Hitmen are hoping to build on that in 2019-20.

The roster

As of this morning, the Hitmen are rolling with 27 players on their active roster.

Goalies (3): Jack McNaughton, Carl Stankowski and Brayden Peters

Defensemen (8): Dakota Krebs, Evan Toth, Layne Toder, Jackson van de Leest, Luke Prokop, Andrew Viggars, Egor Zamula and Jett Woo

Forwards (16): Devan Klassen, Josh Prokop, Cael Zimmerman, Mark Kastelic, James Malm, Jonas Peterek, Hunter Campbell, Riley Stotts, Carson Focht, Riley Fiddler-Schultz, Adam Kydd, Zac Funk, Samuel Krajc, Tye Carriere, Orca Weisblatt and Sean Tschigerl

Zimmerman and Malm are currently injured and Kastelic is still in Senators camp, so functionally they have 13 healthy forwards to work with.
