Sean Bonar, 25, will compete for a goaltending spot in camp this year. Since the start of the 2014-15 season, Bonar has spent time with seven different organizations. Last year, the Delta, British Columbia native played 18 games in the ECHL (Brampton, Fort Wayne, Wichita) and also defended the cage 13 times for the Fayetteville FireAntz of the SPHL, posting a 1.89 goals against average. "I want these guys to come in, work hard, and compete. They know they're being given an opportunity and I'm looking forward to see what every one of them has to offer."
