Ryan O'Byrne on his time in Toronto, decision to go to the KHL, and more

Ryan O'Byrne wasn't on the Leafs for very long. He was meant to be a late season addition to beef up the Leafs' blueline. Even though his role was minimal, in a way, he got a more complete Toronto Maple Leafs experience than most players have been through in the past decade. He played in the blue and white during the playoffs, after all.

A few months later and minus an NHL job, O'Byrne is now playing for Lev Prague of the KHL. Even though he's thousands of kilometers away, we managed to get an interview with the now former Leaf.

Tomas Kmec, a young hockey reporter from Slovakia, was recently at a few Lev Prague KHL games in the Czech Republic. Tomas approached me last week, offering to interview some KHL players for us. We've already posted his interview with Leo Komarov here at TLN. All he asked for was that we give him credit. Please give Tomas a follow. He's the reason we have these interviews.

Here's Tomas' interview with "Ryan O'Beauty" on his time with the Leafs, Toronto during the playoffs, heading to the KHL, Randy Carlyle, and more.

Particularly interesting, personally, was the spin around faceoff drills, but I'll talk about that and include lots of pics in another post.

What you need to see, though? This goal from Tyler Biggs, scored as a few players goofed around after the scheduled end of practice:

As we all know, Phil "Trill" Kessel took his beloved "hackey" a little too literally on Sunday, going full Lumberjack/Jedi on John Scott's completely oblivious ankles. We noticed it, the Sabres noticed it, and NHL Player Safety certainly did, suspending Kessel for the rest of the preseason.
