With so many players, it can be hard to indentify who’s who, especially with so many invites. There are a few you can identify by faces, and then of course, you can name them if you’ve got their number or nameplate in your picture. Here are a few ways that can help you figure out which player is which (by lines). Numbers, most names, and line combos courtesy of @takingnames.
#50 Cody Eakin – #75 Phil DeSimone – #91 Sean Wiles
-Eakin is easily identifiable by his ginger hair. Even if you can recognize him by his face, that red hair is sticking out of the sides of his helmet. He’s also a lefty, uses an Easton stick, and wears Warrior gloves.
-DeSimone has short dark hair that isn’t too visible. He’s a lefty, uses a Nike Bauer stick with black tape (or no tape?) on the blade, and wears Reebok gloves. His skates are black and the tongues are floppy.
-Wiles is the only righty on the line. He wears Reebok gloves, RBK pants, and uses a Nike Bauer stick with white tape on the blade. He’s also the tallest on this line at 6’4.
#9 Patrick Cullen – #18 Chris Forfar – #48 Evgeny Kuznetsov
-Cullen has somewhat long hair that sticks out of his helmet a little bit. He wears Reebok gloves and pants and uses a Reebok stick that has black tape on the blade and tan/white tape on the shaft. He’s a lefty.
-Forfar wears greyish skates and Bauer gloves. He’s a righty and uses a Bauer stick that is white on the top half and black on the bottom half and has tan/white tape on the shaft and blade.
-Kuznetsov is a lefty and wears Bauer gloves and pants. He uses an Easton stick with tan/white tape on the shaft and blade. His skates have a tiny hint of yellow on the side/back.
#77 Jake Hauswirth – #84 Stefan Della Rovere – #87 David deKastrozza
-Hauswirth is the tallest on the line at 6’5. He’s a lefty, wears RBK pants and Reebok gloves, and uses either a Reebok or Bauer stick with black tape on the blade and white tape on the shaft. He leaves his skate tongues out and floppy.
-Della Rovere is probably the shortest on the line. He’s a lefty, wears Reebok gloves and pants, and uses a black Reebok stick with black tape on the blade and white on the shaft. His skates are completely black.
-deKastrozza is a righty, wears Reebok gloves, and uses a black Reebok stick.
#34 Brendan Woods – #94 Anton Gustafsson – #86 Andrew Cherniwchan
-Woods is a lefty. He wears Warrior gloves, RBK pants, and grey skates. He uses a Warrior stick with yellow and blue details and black tape on the blade and red on the shaft.
-Gustafsson is a lefty and uses a black CCM stick that has red detail at the top and black tape on the shaft and blade. He wears Bauer gloves and pants.
-Cherniwchan is a righty. He wears RBK gloves and has a Nike Bauer stick that is black with a little grey where it says “Bauer” and has white tape on his blade.
#59 Joe Finley – #81 Dmirti Orlov
-Finley is probably the easiest guy to pick out. He’s the tallest out of all of the campers at 6’8. He wears Bauer gloves. He’s a lefty and has a black Reebok stick has black tape on the blade and white on the shaft.
-Orlov is probably one of the few guys I’ve seen with a CCM helmet. He’s a lefty and uses a black Bauer stick with white tape on the blade and black on the shaft. He wears Bauer gloves and Reebok pants.

-Bond is a lefty with a blue Easton stick that has black tape on the blade and white on the shaft. He wears Bauer gloves and Easton pants.
