The Toronto Marlies signed a pair of Minnesota-Duluth products today: centre Tony Cameranesi and defenceman William Corrin.
Cameranesi, who I assume has a nickname related to the fact the first six letters of his name spell the word "camera", is a Toronto Maple Leafs fifth-round pick, having gone 130th overall in 2011. After four steady years of NCAA, Tony got into six
photographs games with the Marlies last season, putting up a pair of goals. Obviously the Marlies liked the look of him, because now he's back for more extended action. Mr. Pictures is going to turn 23 on August 12th, so let's hope he continues to develop.
William Corrin is a big, soon-to-be 25-year-old left-handed defender. He didn't score very often with UMD, putting up four goals in his four seasons, but one of them did look like this (thanks to Katya for this gif, as well as her Marlies expertise generally):
Corrin got into four Marlies games last season, producing at a torrid 0.50 points per game clip that is definitely sustainable and predictive. The Marlies have a glut of experienced left-shooting defenders, so Corrin may wind up spending some time in Orlando. On the other hand, his relative age and maturity might help a young Marlies' defence group.
