Update Monday, May 17:

Scott Sabourin and Mac Hollowell are back with the Marlies, and everyone is at practice out of non-contact jerseys except the mysteriously absent Ben Hutton.


There is no Taxi Squad in the playoffs, so there is no intermediate step. Players are either on the NHL roster or in the AHL, subject to recall rules and limits until the AHL season ends, which for the Maple Leafs is May 20, just before their first playoff game starts.

Only players on NHL contracts can play or join the roster for the NHL playoffs. That seems obvious, but confusion continues to reign over the difference between an NHL and an AHL contract. Drafted prospects have to have a current season NHL ELC to join the team, so Rodion Amirov cannot. He can watch from the pressbox, subject to Covid rules, of course.

Players on NHL contracts in Europe, like Filip Hållander can be added at any time. He is currently on the Swedish national team.

That’s the pool to draw from, make up you team and lines how you like!
