Toronto Maple Leafs lines: Nikita Soshnikov recalled, Frank Corrado sees some ice?

New, comments

Soshnikov rides into the ACC to see some fourth line action and will Frank Corrado make an appearance tonight?

NHL: New York Islanders at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Good news everybody!

The day we’ve all (apparently) been waiting for has arrived!

Or not.

WHY ARE YOU TOYING WITH OUR HEARTS LINE TWEETERS?

Fine, who knows what’s going on with Corrado, no one who isn’t Babcock that’s for sure. Maybe he’ll play, maybe he wont, just like the last nine games.

UPDATE: He will not be playing tonight. (This will probably change 3 more times)

In better more concrete news, Nikita Soshnikov has been recalled from the AHL Toronto Marlies. Soshnikov has been good for the Marlies, with 1 goal, 2 assists in 6 games. It looks like he’ll slot in on the fourth line with Matt Martin and Ben Smith

Forwards:
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Connor Brown - Nazem Kadri - Leo Komarov
James van Riemsdyk - Tyler Bozak - Mitch Marner
Matt Martin - Ben Smith - Nikita Soshnikov
Seth Griffith

Defense:
Morgan Rielly - Nikita Zaitsev
Martin Marincin - Connor Carrick
Jake Gardiner - Roman Polak
Frank Corrado????????

Last year in an eleven game stint with the Maple Leafs, Soshnikov scored two goals, three assists for five points.

Will we actually see him on the ice? Things look good, but you never know.
