Forward Brandon Kozun was reassigned to the Toronto Marlies this morning, as per a release on the Leafs' website. The Marlies play at 3 p.m. today, so it's likely he'll slot in the lineup there. He's managed 11 points in 23 games so far with the Marlies.

Every tank has its day.
The Toronto Maple Leafs got back into the win column tonight, downing the WInnipeg Jets in overtime by a score of 4-3. While many of us are fully on board with tanking out the rest of the season in hopes of the highest draft pick possible, I'm glad some 8-year old hockey fan who doesn't understand tank jobs got to stay up late and see a Leafs victory.
Report: Maple Leafs won't make a decision on permanent head coach 'until they know what's happening' with Mike Babock

Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock is slated to be among the most hotly pursued free agents in hockey this summer. Babcock, 51, has opted to go into his lame duck final year without signing an extension and has refused to negotiate with the team in-season.
While it's difficult to imagine Babcock, a Stanley Cup winner and two-time Olympic gold medalist, leaving a Red Wings team that is loaded with young talent in favour of taking on the task of ironing out the dysfunction on Bay Street, the Maple Leafs will reportedly not name a new full-time head coach until Babcock's future is settled.

We often joke about putting up statues for anybody who does remotely good in the Leafs organization, but at the end of the day, this is a 98 year old organization with a lot of awesome history, particularly in it's former half. This is one of the reasons I really love the Legend's Row idea that the Leafs started working on last season, and tonight, they announced the upcoming additions of two more Toronto greats.

There's something about the Texas Stars that the Toronto Marlies just can't figure out. I mean, this goes for a lot of AHL teams, but even as the team has regressed from Calder Cup Champions to just a borderline playoff team, their ability to control games against the Blue and White is pretty bonkers. For most of this one, it was more of the same, and it ended in a 3-1 loss for Toronto.
