The Gulls will take to the ice today for the first time in 163 days as the club's 2018 Training Camp is set to get underway for the first of three-on-ice sessions at THE RINKS - Anaheim ICE. Over the past three days, the Anaheim Ducks have assigned 13 players to the Gulls which fills out the start of camp with eight forwards, four defensemen and one goaltender.

The addition to the roster are Anaheim NHL Draft selections left wing Jack Kopacka (4th rd., 93rd in 2016), in addition to free agent signees Terrance Amorosa, Scott Moldenhauer, Tyler Soy and Ben Thomson round out the skaters to begin training camp, in addition to goaltender Angus Redmond, who enters his second professional season following a season split between Utah and Toledo in the ECHL.
