A successful open tryout for the Denver Cutthroats' inaugural season ended with five players being selected to attend the team's official training camp in October.

After a three-day open tryout camp, which saw nearly 70 players participate, the Denver Cutthroats selected five players for their official training camp in October. Sadly—and unexpectedly—Jay Meloff was not on that list. Despite being praised repeatedly throughout the camp as one of the best on the ice, Cutthroats Head Coach Derek Armstrong and Assistant General Manager/Director of Hockey Operations Brent Cullaton decided to go in a different direction.

The camp was filled with players that were certainly deserving of the invite, though. “We were very surprised at the competition and the level of play this weekend,” said Armstrong. “Originally we thought we’d take one or two players and we ended up selecting five which is a testament to the players and the work they put in.”

The players selected to attend the Cutthroats official training camp were Andrew Coles, Stephen Cunningham, Nick Laporte, Justin Schmit, and Phil Tesoriero.

“Overall we were impressed with how the weekend went,” added Armstrong.

Training camp is scheduled to begin in early October and the Cutthroats begin their inaugural season on October 19th at 7:05 PM.
