Rookie Tournament Roster
« on: August 06, 2015, 12:35:26 PM »
Leafs announced their roster for the rookie tournament in September, no surprises of course but it's a nice showcase of the talent we've put together recently:

Interesting that Soshnikov is on there, think that means he will play for the Marlies?

I seem to remember there was some doubt as to whether he'd come over this season.

You might be thinking of someone else (maybe that Russian defencemen who we didn't actually end up signing, Zaitsev). It was pretty clear that Soshnikov would be leaving the KHL.

Yeah, I seem to recall maybe his Russian coach saying he should stay in Russia for one more year, or he had one more year on his Russian deal or something.

Ah, yeah, I think that his Russian coach (and team) wasn't exactly thrilled about the move and said some things like that. But yeah his KHL deal is up so there's nothing tying him there.

But we're all going with Mitch, right? Not Mitchell? I feel like we need to clear that up before we move on to Nylander and clear that situation up.

I'm partial to MiMa (mee-maw) or MarnDog and Will Nye the Hockey Guy (or any variation of Snizz, Snizzy, Snizzles, Snazzy-Snizz). Gonna need more nicknames for the others because some of their names are hard for me to spell from memory.

This has my seal of approval.

USA played Sweden today and Bracco scored a very nice goal, as did Tymashov for Sweden.
