The Ducks announced their training camp roster Sunday just before starting the first official practice of their abbreviated workout session.
The team will begin the lockout-shortened season Saturday at Vancouver and return home for their Honda Center debut Jan. 25, also against the Canucks.
The 29-player training camp roster will be pared to 23 after five practices, which will begin at 11:15 a.m. Sunday at Honda Center. The workout is open to the public, with the team offering a special presale of individual game tickets for the 48-game schedule.
The Ducks finished 34-36-12 last season, missing the playoffs. They’ve been haunted by slow starts in recent years, but will work to build from the momentum of a 14-6-1 home record from Jan. 1, 2012, until the end of the season. They were 24-14-6 in their final 44 games.
