Goalie Thomas McCollum, defensemen Greg Amadio, Gleason Fournier, Sebastien Piche and Bryan Rufenach, and forwards Louis-Marc Aubry, Mitchell Callahan, Willie Coetzee, Adam Estoclet, Jamie Johnson, Andrej Nestrasil, Nick Oslund, Francis Pare, Trevor Parkes, and Brent Raedeke all were assigned to the minor-league affiliate Griffins.
Also, goalie Ramis Sadikov was given his unconditional release.
