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.

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.
