The first loss is definitely not as bad as the last loss, but it’s still pretty bad. Hopefully this season there won’t be a last loss.
This is just my personal take, but as someone who makes millions of dollars for their job, Kapanen should probably know the rules.
Kapanen came out and owned his mistake. Says he didn’t realize throwing that broken stick would result in a penalty shot. “You learn something every day.”— luke fox (@lukefoxjukebox) October 6, 2019
Earlier in the day, Katya wrote up a prospect report on all the junior and european players.
LHD Mikko Kokkonen (TOR) was back in the junior league (#ASM) today but at least he scored a nice goal there. #LeafsForever— Jokke Nevalainen (@JokkeNevalainen) October 4, 2019

The Toronto Marlies won their season opener at home by a score of 4-1. Egor Korshkov, Timothy Liljegren, and Jordan Schmaltz all scored in the game and Kasimir Kaskisuo stopped 30 of 31 for the win. We’ll have a recap of the game from Species sometime today.
Earlier in the day yesterday, Marlies GM Laurence Gilman spoke to the media. Gilman spoke about roster construction, the three-tier prospect system, and an update on Ian Scott’s injury. He’s going to be a pro this season in the ECHL as the starter.
