Rich LeBlanc/InsideTheRink

The Worcester Railers announced Monday morning that they have released their 2024 season-ending roster. In the ECHL, each team can protect up to 20 players. The Worcester Railers look to protect key members of the team to ensure a winning culture. Each player to make the roster must have signed an ECHL contract for the 2023-24 season. Each team is allowed to keep the rights to up to eight players from the list of 20 players.

The Roster

The team announced nine forwards, eight defensemen, and one goalie. The forwards include Blade Jenkins, Anthony Callin, Zach White, Anthony Repaci, Andrei Bakanov, Jack Quinlivan, Keeghan Howdeshell, Brendan Robbins, and Austin Heidemann. The defensemen include CJ Regula, John Copeland, Zsombor Garat, Artem Kulakov, Connor Welsh, Ryan Verrier, Ryan Dickinson, and Mason Klee, along with the goaltender John Muse.

Thoughts/Surpises As the Railers Find A Track For The 2024-25 Season

Heading into the 2024-25 season, The Worcester Railers have a talented list they have set along with new management. The team is heading in the right direction. The Railers have some young talent as well as some veteran presence, including the seasoned veteran in net, John Muse. Muse may be eying a retirement soon, so the team should look to prepare for his absence.

A plus on this side is forward Anthony Repaci, who suffered a mid-season injury that left him sidelined until the season’s final weekend. The Railers hope that incorporating him back into the lineup won’t be a difficult task. Repaci, who is, for the most part, in good spirits, adds an extra bit of excitement for the Worcester Railers.

A veteran on the defensive side of the puck by the name of Connor Welsh is an important add, as his presence means nothing but good for the team. He was a staple for the team during the 2023-24 season, where it is hard to imagine him out of the lineup. Welsh will no doubt have a similar 2024-25 season ahead.

The Worcester Railers management felt good about their decisions within the 2024-25 season-ending roster. The team has been getting creative lately in hopes of making a playoff run. This including scrapping the management at the end of season and hiring an entire new office.
