Kapanen and Leipsic are back in skates!

Hopefully both are close to returning, would like to see one of them called up and get a shot.

Thanks for the Marlies update Herman, I am just posting the Tweet from Alter to confirm.

A+ TBLeafer. That's where I saw it first.

Kapanen is still probably a week or so out (knees are tricky). Leipsic is much closer.

Good for the Marlies, who just lost their leading scorer, Froese, to the team he scored the most against (4 G in 4 GP against Syracuse).

Marlies also picked up a pretty complicated name on loan:

He is the very definition of nothing to be excited about.

good news for sure and with Froese gone they are going to need the firepower

Kapanen returns to the Marlies today after missing 20 games with an injury. Line-up:

Moore Greening Griffith
Timashov Kalinin Kapanen
Rychel Gauthier Johnsson
Leblond Laich Cameranesi

Campbell Holl
Dermott Oleksy
Nielsen Wrenn

Bibeau

Once Leipsic returns, which should be soon, the Marlies wingers are going to be absolutely deadly. Especially if Timashov and Johnsson stay hot.

The centre position OTOH...

Will Adam Brooks be able to join the team once the WHL playoffs/Mem Cup is over? Because you have to figure he'd instantly become their best/oldest centre.

The Marlies have also fought their way into a playoff spot, which admittedly I didn't see coming a couple of months ago. Corrado and Froese were both big parts of that though, so we'll see how they play without them.

Yes, he can join the team after his team is eliminated.  Seeing as his team is #1 in the CHL, I doubt the Marlies are still playing when his season ends.

His team, the Regina Pats, are hosting the Mem Cup this year. They're also the top ranked team in the WHL. So they'll likely be going pretty deep there. I doubt he'll be available.

The Pats are hosting the Mem Cup next year.  This year the Mem Cup is in Windsor.  As you said though, they will likely be going pretty deep so he will not likely be available.

Ah, thanks, I googled 2017 Memorial Cup and saw their name pop up near the top.

Ah well. They'll have to look elsewhere for veteran leadership I suppose.

Fehr can play centre, so there's that.

I'd consider swinging Moore into the middle if our wings are so clogged.

Next year, we're adding Brooks, Bracco, Korostelev (currently injured), Dzierkals, Desrocher, Piccinich, Walker, Bobylev, and maybe Grundstrom, so this could get really stupid (awesome). Only one centre in that bunch. Maybe Cameranesi makes the move to centre too.

Lou mentioned that maybe half a dozen of the current Marlies are NHL capable right now (Kapanen, Leipsic, Griffith, Rychel, Gauthier being the obvious ones). Assuming one gets poached in expansion, and 2-3 graduate, the Marlies are looking staaaaacked next season.

We're at the 50 SPC limit, so there won't be any help coming for the Marlies (other than Soshnikov, or ATOs). Fehr can play the regular season, but I don't think he is eligible for the playoffs.
