It's official- the Maple Leafs will see two of their own wearing a different Maple Leaf this holiday season.
A pair of Leaf prospects- Mitch Marner and Travis Dermott- were named to the final roster for the upcoming World Junior Championship kicking off this Saturday in Helsinki, Finland.

Bernier...saved the first shot.— The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) December 20, 2015
Bernier saved the first shot... and the second shot... and the next 24 after that, too.
A 5-0 win against the Kings for Jonathan Bernier's first victory of the season- just like everyone predicted.
Bernier (finally!) got the monkey off his back, earning his shutout of the year in impressive fashion.

The World Juniors are still a week away, but that didn't stop Team Canada's Leafs prospects from putting themselves on the scoreboard. In a 7-1 rout of Belarus, first round pick and TLN's preseason #1 prospect Mitch Marner picked up a goal while second-rounder Travis Dermott added a goal and two assists.

If you thought the Leafs had trouble hosting the last California team to swing through Toronto, wait 'till you get a load of these guys. The Kings are one of the hottest teams in the league right now, with a 7-1-2 record in their past 10 games. They are, once again, looking like a serious Stanley Cup contender.
Oh, and the Leafs are tied for dead last. Yikes.
