1. Cody Husband, B.C.

Notes: Has spent the past seven seasons with the Ticats predominantly at centre.

3. Jon Gott, OTT

Notes: Ten-year veteran who can still fill in at centre or guard. Age is a concern.

4. Justin Sorensen, EDM

Starts in 2018: 13
Notes: Reverted to a back-up role in 2018, Sorensen’s mileage is a concern.

5. Josiah St. John, SSK
Age: 26
Starts in 2018: 2
Notes: Hasn’t had a huge impact since being drafted first overall in 2016, but held his own late last season following an injury to Dariusz Bladek.

Starts in 2018: 1
Notes: Was traded to Montreal this past season, only to be released and return to Hamilton. A career depth player.
