DETROIT -- Johan Franzen is feeling good and pushing himself.

The Detroit Red Wings right wing was limited to 33 games last season because of post-concussion syndrome and other injuries; he last played on Jan. 6. But the 35-year-old has been on the ice working out with teammates during informal skates at Joe Louis Arena for the past few weeks, and he's been trying to ramp up his effort and intensity.

"Going pretty hard, probably too much for me, just to see if I can get through it," Franzen said after the informal skate Wednesday. " … My threshold is getting higher and higher every week. [I'm] just pushing my body a little more, letting it rest and see where we are after that."

Franzen said he expects to pass his physical and be cleared for training camp, which begins Sept. 17 in Traverse City, Mich.

Mike Brophy - Correspondent

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."
