Former USHL bench boss Anthony Noreen has been named the new coach of the ECHL Orlando Solar Bears. Noreen had been the head coach of the Youngstown Phantoms since 2011, and won USHL Coach of the Year honours this season after leading the Phantoms to a 40-14-6 record.

One veteran whose name is out there, however, is defenceman Roman Polak, who has one year remaining on a deal with a $2.75-million cap hit. After adding Marincin and re-signing Tim Erixon, T.J. Brennan and Petter Granberg, the Leafs have a lot of young defencemen to find minutes for, and Polak will be easy to move.
