Cut day for open-tryout invitees.

Four days into training camp, Josh Newton, Gabriel Andre and Mike Thomson have been released from their open-tryout invitations, and Aaron Lewadniuk has been added to the roster.

The three open-tryout invitees had their moment in the sun. Thomson will probably try to continue his; the forward from La Habra said he had spoken with coaches in the Central Hockey League and the Southern Professional Hockey League in case the Reign tryout didn’t work out.

Five more players are expected to return to Ontario from AHL camps this week, which pushed the tryout players out of a spot as anticipated.
