Marlies won last night 2-0. The Goat had primary assists on both goals...Sparks has now shut out 64 consecutive shots. He is squaring very nicely to the puck.  Johnson named to North AHL Squad in place of Kapanen.
Man I like a few cogs in our pipeline.

This is a deeeeeeep dive into the Marlies' practice and development program, run by Director of Player Development Scott Pellerin. Hired by Dubas alongside Darryl Belfry (skills consultant) December 2014.

Great story and really an example of how far the Leafs have come in the last 3 years.  Like night and day. 
Makes me wonder however how long Dubas will be in lower Leaf management or is he ready to replace Lou now.  And for Pellerin, seems like a head coach position will open up at some point in the NHL.  Hell Randy and Bruce look ready for the knakker yard.

Andreas Johnsson is now 13th in the AHL in points, tied for 2nd in goals. He also has 11 points in his past 4 games which seems pretty good.

He's only been pointless in more than 1 game in a row on two occasions this season too. Incredible consistency.

Marlies swept the weekend series with the Binghamton Devils.

Mike Babcock was in attendance getting a gander at the kids and maybe taking a looksee at Soshnikov's 'recovery' progress. Soshnikov and Borgman both scored, along with Greening twice, and Rychel on the PP.

I think the Leafs could do worse than calling up Colin Greening alongside Andreas Johnsson if Komarov + JvR both got traded at the deadline/tomorrow. Greening's been a very good soldier for the Shanaplan, hard along the boards, pretty good hands in tight, probably deserves a call-up, even though it doesn't result in a pay bump. It'd be cheaper than trying to find an external trade option, unless our trades are quantity for helpful player on a dumpy cap hit.

I agree on all counts herman, it's great to hear Keefe talk about the run, he's still all about process, a great development coach.

The Athletic's Scott Wheeler has his mid-season rankings out for the Leafs top prospects 22 or younger.

To be fair, two of them are Kapanen and Soshnikov, who are already up with the big club.  But too see Liljegren and Johnsson in that group is encouraging...

What makes the Marlies recent success all the more remarkable is that they were forced to carry and play a severely injured Nikita Soshnikov.
