The Toronto Maple Leafs have closed camp, and they finalized their roster this morning with the announcement that 18-year-old Morgan Reilly has been sent back to his junior team and sophomore forward Matt Frattin has been sent to the AHL.
The moves leave the Leafs with 13 forwards and eight defencemen on the active roster with Jake Gardiner making it nine defencemen when he returns to 100 percent health after battling a concussion.
The departures of Matt Lombardi and Tim Connolly in recent days opens up the roster for some new faces heading into the 2012-13 shortened season. According to Leafs beat reporter James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail, the roster for their Saturday night debut in Montreal will look something like this.
Here are six Maple Leaf players to watch when they hit the ice on Saturday night.
