Carl Soderberg-Chris Kelly-Reilly Smith

Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Matt Fraser-Matt Lindblad-Nick Johnson

Ryan Spooner-Jordan Caron


Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk

Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton

Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

Matt Bartkowski-Kevan Miller

Tuukka Rask


Chad Johnson

Niklas Svedberg

The third line, which had two openings before camp, appears locked up. Carl Soderberg and Reilly Smith will be Chris Kelly’s wings. Soderberg could see time on the No. 2 power-play unit. Smith could see some penalty-killing shifts like Rich Peverley did in previous seasons.

Matt Bartkowski projects to be the No. 7 defenseman. Bartkowski and Torey Krug have been very good in camp. Krug’s power-play touch, however, gives him the edge over Bartkowski. Krug will be the quarterback on the No. 1 unit.

Chad Johnson is the likely backup goalie.

The final fight is for the spare forward position. Nick Johnson and Jordan Caron are the two likely finalists. Both would require waivers to be assigned to Providence. Matt Fraser, Matt Lindblad, and Ryan Spooner are on their entry-level deals.
