Leafs Get New ECHL Affiliate

The Leafs ECHL affiliate from last season, the Columbia Inferno, suspended operations to build a new arena. The ECHL’s Reading Royals have replaced Columbia for the upcoming season and maybe longer. Early reports indicated that the team name would change to the Reading Marlies but reports made since then indicate no name change.
