TORONTO -- Some of the Toronto Maple Leafs' top prospects are hoping the changes made this summer will increase their chances of making the team this season.

Mitchell Marner, Connor Brown and Kasperi Kapanen, who were in Toronto on Monday at the NHL Players' Association Rookie Showcase, believe the additions of general manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Mike Babcock will create opportunities for them to play in the NHL sooner rather than later.

Toronto went 30-44-8 last season and finished 27th in the League standings with 68 points.

"It has been a big offseason for the city and the team," Marner said. "A lot of guys came in who have winning records and that's what this city needs, someone to come in and put their foot down and show what it's like to be a playoff team and a contender."

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- There were few positives for the Boston Bruins to take out of missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season for first time in eight seasons.

Forward Brad Marchand took advantage of Boston's extended time off over the summer to have surgery to repair torn tendons in his right elbow that had been bothering him since before the start of the 2014 postseason.

Marchand, who is taking part in informal workouts with teammates here at Ristuccia Arena, said he expects to be at full strength when training camp opens Sept. 17.

"It just started feeling better around the start of August," Marchand told on Tuesday. "So it was tough. I couldn't do a whole lot of upper-body workouts for the first three months off. The last month has been good though. It's come around and it's feeling pretty good. But I'm still in the rehab process. So I'm trying to get my strength back up. It's tough to train on one side of your body. You don't want to get too out of whack when you do that, so now I'm just trying to get my strength back up and hopefully feel good for the season."
