It's probably fair to say that, outside of the big-name trio of draft choices that will make up the core of the Leafs for years to come, the best additions the team has made in the last two years have been that of Zach Hyman and Nikita Zaitsev.

They basically just went out and got these guys with hopes of them becoming strong support pieces, and they're already living up to that billing without question.

Hot off the heels of a game where they finally found some success at even strength, the Toronto Marlies looked to continue a climb up the standings against the very same Rochester Americans that they defeated 5-0 hours before. While they did manage to squeak out a point, the result wasn't quite what they wanted, as it all ended in a 4-3 overtime defeat.
