Crescenzi, 20, has one goal, two points and 33 penalty minutes in 32 games this season with the Toronto Marlies, the Maple Leafs’ American Hockey League affiliate. Crescenzi has played parts of the past three seasons with the Marlies since turning pro in 2010-11.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
