Maple Leafs return defencemen Jesse Blacker to AHL's Marlies

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have reassigned defenceman Jesse Blacker to the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies.

The Maple Leafs brought Blacker up on Monday, but he did not play in any games.

In 53 games with the Marlies this season, the six-foot-two, 190-pound defenceman has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) and 31 minutes in penalties.

He was originally Toronto’s third choice, 58th overall in the 2009 draft.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
