Highlights from Saturday's Scrimmage

Jeff Glass, in camp on a PTO, stoned Nazem Kadri more than once on the way to a shutout in this one.

Jim Hiller

Hiller talks about the amount of competition for jobs and also about how great Jake Gardiner looked. It is fun getting a chance to get to know him with Mike Babcock still in Toronto.

Josh Leivo

He speaks about his offseason work and the scrimmage.

Frederik Gauthier

Freddie's getting some notice for a leaner, faster look this year.

Sunday Highlights

Jake Gardiner

Discusses playing with Connor Carrick. This is one of the most detailed and least vague interviews.

Mitch Marner

He talks a bit about chemistry with William Nylander, and his plans for the exhibition games.

William Nylander

He also thinks the chemistry with Marner was good. He talks about playing with Matt Martin, and the space he was creating—largely in front of the net—and about how he expects to be playing wing in the NHL.

Connor Brown

Brown says he's bigger and stronger, and you can get a chance to see him in the first exhibition game.

Pre-season Game

The action moves to something closer to a real game on Monday with the first pre-season game. We'll have a preview for you tomorrow afternoon.
