2009 Traverse City Prospect Tournament roster announced

The Dallas Stars have released the roster for the upcoming prospect tournament in Traverse City, Michigan held September 6-10. Since the Stars decided against having a prospects camp due to cutting back on spending, this will be the first time we'll get to see several of the Stars top prospects in action.

Richard Bachman, Jamie Benn and Colton Sceviour are playing, along with top defensive prospect Ivan Vishnevskiy, who are all expected to anchor the Texas Stars this upcoming season. This is also the chance to get a glimpse of the newest prospects in the Stars' system, with top draft pick Scott Glennie and fellow draft choice Tomas Vincour both in attendance for the Stars as well. Players who will be attending college this season, such as second round pick Alex Chiasson, generally do not take part in the tournament in order to preserve their NCAA eligibility.

Obviously all eyes will be on Benn and Vishnevskiy, but I'm also really interested to see what Richard Bachman does against this level of competition. He had a bit of a down year last season with Colorado College, but some are saying that had more to do with the quality of team he played for rather than any actual regression on his part. With Matt Climie and Brent Krahn both in the Stars system as well, Bachman will need a good showing in September to prove that he belongs to be in the AHL rather than in the ECHL where some think he may start the season.

Of course, a lot of focus will be on Scott Glennie as well. There are some who have questioned the Stars picking Glennie at #8 overall and while he's still a few years away from the AHL, this is a great chance for him to prove that he was the right choice.

Follow the jump for the full roster for the tournament.
