The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Monday morning a reduction of their camp roster from 40 players down to 26 a day before cap compliant rosters are required to be submitted (5pm Tuesday). The Leafs have also made some changes to their lineup following Saturday’s Blue vs. White scrimmage game. Let’s get into it.
Today’s Camp Roster
Joe Thornton - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
Jimmy Vesey - John Tavares - William Nylander
Ilya Mikheyev - Alex Kerfoot - Zach Hyman
Alexander Barabanov - Jason Spezza - Wayne Simmonds
Nick Robertson - Travis Boyd* - Adam Brooks*
- Boyd and Brooks were placed on waivers at noon today.
Morgan Rielly - TJ Brodie
Jake Muzzin - Justin Holl
Travis Dermott - Zach Bogosian
Mikko Lehtonen - Rasmus Sandin
- Dermott replaces Lehtonen on the third pair
- Dell was not placed on waivers today, so the Leafs will still have three goalies on their roster by Tuesday 5pm when final lists are due.
Matthews - Thornton - Marner
Nylander - Tavares - Spezza
- Brodie replaces Lehtonen
Hyman - Marner
Muzzin - Holl
Mikheyev - Kerfoot
Dermott - Bogosian
- Vesey - Barabanov skated on the penalty kill as a duo while Hyman and Marner were practicing power play
- Matthews and Spezza will be on FOGO duty (face off get off)
Camp Attendees sent to the Marlies
A number of players were sent to the Toronto Marlies (some pending waivers) who will likely begin their training camp in the coming weeks as an early February start to the AHL season approaches. Here is a rough set of lines for those players, which is easier to read than a list of names in alphabetical order.
I have excluded players who did not attend training camp as they are on loan in Europe (notably Egor Korshkov, Semyon Der-Arguchintsev, and Denis Malgin).
Bold - on waivers today
Italics - cleared waivers before today
* - AHL-only contract
Nic Petan - Pierre Engvall - Joey Anderson
Kenny Agostino - Rourke Chartier* - Justin Brazeau*
Tyler Gaudet* - Scott Sabourin*
Calle Rosen - Timothy Liljegren
David Warsofsky - Martin Marincin
Teemu Kivihalme - Mac Hollowell
