The ECHL announced the season-ending rosters for all teams on Tuesday, so we finally got our first glimpse of what the Missouri Mavericks received in return for their fire sale just before the trade deadline.

Here is a look at the final roster submitted by the Mavs:

Goalies – Josh Robinson

Defensemen – Patch Alber, Tyson Gimblett, Chris Owens, Alex Lepkowski, Tony DeHart, Brendan Rempel

Forwards – Lee Reimer, Jared Brown, Tyler Currier, Lindsay Sparks, Kain Allicock, Brett Stovin, Andrew Courtney, Sebastien Thinel, Brian Nugent, David de Kastrozza, David Pacan, Rocco Carzo, Tristan King

There’s a couple of interesting things to note. The Mavs retained the rights to DeHart and Nugent, even though they refused to report. By no means does that mean that either of them will receive qualifying offers. Also, de Kastrozza, Pacan, Carzo, and King are the haul the Mavs got in return from the late-season trades. Here’s a look at what they bring to the table:

 

David de Kastrozza – Right Wing (6’3”, 220lbs, 28 years old)

2014-15 team: Idaho Steelheads (acquired through the Marty Lee trade)

Games playes: 64

Goals: 19

Assists: 23

Penalty Minutes: 24

Plus/Minus: +12

 

David Pacan – Right Wing (6’3”, 218lbs, 24 years old)

2014-15 team: Cincinnati Cyclones (acquired through the Jack Downing trade)

Games playes: 70 (62 with Cincinnati, 8 with Norfolk in the AHL)

Goals: 12

Assists: 29

Penalty Minutes: 70

Plus/Minus: -14

 

Rocco Carzo – Forward (6’1”, 203lbs, 24 years old)

2014-15 team: Ontario Reign (acquired through the Josh Brittain trade)

Games playes: 71 (64 with Ontario, 7 with Norfolk in the AHL)

Goals: 20

Assists: 23

Penalty Minutes: 59

Plus/Minus: +4

 

Tristan King – Center (6’, 170lbs, 24 years old)

2014-15 team: Ontario Reign (acquired through the Josh Brittain trade)

Games playes: 42

Goals: 6

Assists: 27

Penalty Minutes: 21

Plus/Minus: +11

 

After the trade deadline, General Manager Brent Thiessen vowed that he received talent in return for the deals that they pulled off, and he appears to be right. He got back a couple of 20 goal scorers, a big power forward, youth, and AHL experience. Most fans weren’t happy when the deals went down, but if these four players don a Mavs sweater in 2015-16, there is no reason to believe that the trade deadline swaps were anything but a success.

  1. I find it interesting that there are only 2 veterans on the season ending roster (Thinel and de Kastrozza). I really don’t think that the Mavs will make a qualifying offer to Thinel. So, with up to 4 veteran QO’s available the Mavs should only use 1. That leaves 7 for the other guys. I would think that the Mavs will burn one by making an offer to Andrew Courtney. Then an offer to the guys we picked up as our players to be named latter (Pacan, Carzo, and King). That leaves 4 more, and I don’t have a clue. Maybe Robinson, Alber, Sparks, and Owens or Stovin?
