In a bit of a surprise move, Sheldon Keefe announced this evening that Adam Brooks and Travis Dermott will both play tonight.

Warm-up comes about the time our GDT goes out, or a little after, so we’ll have the full story there for you. As announced early, Nick Foligno is not playing tonight.

Also tonight, the AHL transactions page lists the Marlies players recalled to the NHL roster, and now available to play:

  • Semyon Der-Arguchintsev
  • Mac Hollowell
  • Kalle Kossila
  • Timothy Liljegren
  • Michael Hutchinson
  • Stefan Noesen
  • Calle Rosen
  • Scott Sabourin
  • Veini Vehviläinen
  • Joe Woll/

Some of the other AHL-contracted players have been loaned to an ECHL team that is still playing. Mikko Kokkonen and William Villeneuve, both drafted prospects, have been released from their try-out contracts, as have several free agents who were on the team to be seen by the Marlies staff.

If nothing else, the Leafs now enough practice goalies to giver every three forwards their own personal victim in shooting drills.
