The training camp roster has not yet been announced, but Newsday has confirmed that defenseman Wade Redden, 34, who was waived on Sept. 25 last year and then assigned to the AHL, will not be on it.

The declining play of Redden and the burden of his six-year, $39-million contract, which he signed on July 1, 2008 after playing 11 years with the Ottawa Senators, had prompted the 2010 demotion.

Redden was 8-34-42 in 70 games for the Connecticut Whale last season. He was the highest-paid player in the league.
