Roster grows to 19 players

The Columbus Cottonmouths increased the size of their training camp roster to 19 players with the return of defenseman Brock Johnson and addition of four newcomers.

With Johnson's signing there will now be 12 players back from last year's Snakes' team. Johnson joins Mat Ponto as the only two defenseman from a year ago. Gone from the blue line are veteran Ryan Aikia as well as Henrik Arnstrom and Christian Gagnon. Veteran Tom Wilson finished the season as a part-time defenseman replacing Nick Harloff who was called to play in the ECHL.

Though Johnson and Ponto are the only known commodities on defense, general manager Jerome Bechard signed Cory Graboski and Shane Koehler as candidates for the Snakes' defense.
