Luke Gazdic has lost about eight pounds, bringing him down to roughly 230.
Gazdic plans to be down to about 225 pounds by the time training camp starts as he wants to be a bit more of a leaner, quicker player. "It's made a difference," he continued. "I really feel it on the ice. I won't lose any strength because I do want to be quicker and I want to be more agile but I still have to be able to take on the toughest guys in the league." He had three points and 43 penalty minutes in 40 games with Edmonton last season. Jul 22 - 9:57 AM
