The Toronto Maple Leafs are in Niagara Falls this week for development camp and things were going well, for the first couple minutes at least...

Well, some players have been known to do that from time to time, I'm sure it was just an extra weak pane or they had a pro come in to show the kids how to rip slap shots.
Or not, because according to TSN's Kristen Shilton it was camp invitee Stephan Baylis who broke the glass. Baylis is a college player in his first year at Bowling Green University in the WCHC of the NCAA. Baylis scored 9 goals and had 22 assists with Bowling Green in his freshman year.
It's good to see an undrafted kid making a huge impression on his first day of camp. Hopefully things were cleaned up quickly and drills could - oh come on.
Another pane of glass is down. On a different pad. Junior rink, NHL shots...bad combo. pic.twitter.com/F5ltSUdgyz— Shawn McKenzie (@ShawnMcKenzieSN) July 5, 2016
Leafs development camp continues all week at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls, ON. Hopefully there's some glass left in town by the end of it.
Update: Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati said the Leafs wouldn't be charged for the glass panels.
@ElSeldo @MapleLeafs it's all part of the game! Broken glass @NiagaraFalls Gale Centre can happen at any time, for any team. #partofthedeal— Jim Diodati (@jimdiodati) July 5, 2016
