from Press Release

Toronto, ON – Toronto Rock General Manager Terry Sanderson has announced the release of two more players from training camp. Forward Roger Vyse and defenceman Mike Hobbins have been released.

"Every decision in camp is incredibly difficult," said Rock Head Coach John Lovell. "We won a championship with Mike in 2011 here in Toronto and Roger came in last season and did a great job for us. We thank them for their contributions to our success and wish them the best of luck in the future."

The release of Hobbins and Vyse bring Toronto's total number of players in camp down to 27. The team needs to get down to a 20-man active roster, along with a maximum 4-man practice player roster, by Monday, December 16th.
