FORWARDS (14): Josh Bailey, Mathew Barzal, Anthony Beauvillier, Casey Cizikas, Cal Clutterbuck, Michael Dal Colle, Jordan Eberle, Ross Johnston, Leo Komarov, Anders Lee, Matt Martin, Brock Nelson, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Oliver Wahlstrom
DEFENSE (8): Sebastian Aho, Noah Dobson, Andy Greene, Thomas Hickey, Nick Leddy, Scott Mayfield, Adam Pelech and Ryan Pulock

TAXI SQUAD (4): Kieffer Bellows, Austin Czarnik, Otto Koivula, Jakub Skarek
Up front, Michael Dal Colle will start the season on injured reserve, while Leo Komarov remains on the roster, despite clearing waivers. A somewhat surprising inclusion on the roster is Oliver Wahlstrom, who spent the majority of the 2019-20 season in the AHL. On defense, Thomas Hickey, who also just cleared waivers, along with Sebastian Aho, both made the main roster.
Other roster moves were also made, including forward Dmytro Timashov being placed on waivers and nine players being sent down to the AHL. Those players are Cole Bardreau, Samuel Bolduc, Tanner Fritz, A.J. Greer, Simon Holmstrom, Grant Hutton, Andrew Ladd, Bode Wilde and Parker Wotherspoon.
