  • Garret Sparks creating 'quiet excitement' in Maple Leafs organization - Sportsnet.ca
    Bernier Antoine Bibeau and Christopher Gibson and almost out of the club s plans altogether Now that s all changed After giving up sweets and junk food in the off season Sparks dropped 25 pounds and last week was named AHL player of the week If there s another Darling or Condon in the offing it might be this youngster I have to give the Leafs all the credit in the world for not giving up on an ignorant kid he says The Leafs had drafted Sparks 190th overall in 2011 and watched him graduate from the Chicago Mission program to the OHL Guelph Storm He was good but he just didn t work at it I was always a kid who played hockey because I liked it and I just kind of rode that up to this level he says As far as the whole working out polished professional thing that wasn t on my radar for the first 16 17 years of my life Until I got to junior it wasn t anything I ever thought about In Guelph I was playing 60 games a year in that shape I didn t think I had any reason to change I was told from day one with the Leafs about that but I m stubborn in that I like to do things my own way and eventually I learned Sparks is 6 foot 2 with long sideburns and a laid back almost surfer like vibe But clearly something has clicked and there s a quiet level of excitement about him in an organization that has struggled to find consistency and stability in the net since Ed Belfour left town Reimer has taken over the No 1 job and the Leafs are suddenly respectable 3 1 2 in their last six games while Bernier recovers from injury Bibeau who rocketed into prominence playing for Val d Or at the Memorial Cup two years ago has been up with the Leafs as a backup giving Sparks the room to take over the Marlies crease and run with the opportunity Antoine s up there right now and we re each other s biggest assets in the sense that we ll push each other until the end of time to get better he says Two goalies the same age with the same skill level and we re just going to keep battling each other For eternity it feels like So for me if there was ever a time to step on the gas and work on my game this is the year to do it I only get in trouble when I doubt myself And I don t doubt that one day I ll be able to put it all together 2Fhockey 2Fnhl 2Fgarret sparks creating quiet excitement in maple leafs organization 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro 2 hours ago Has Marc

  • Dubas: Maple Leafs prospects must 'master' AHL first - Sportsnet.ca
    s nothing ground breaking but we try and push them to be in constant touch with each other Sheldon spent all of September with the Leafs and their staff so Sheldon could take those lessons and transfer them to the Marlies so that when they re called there s not a lot of lag time to re program the players It ll be a seamless transition One Marlies player that has stood out early this season is 2014 first round pick William Nylander who has seven goals and seven assists in 12 games Nylander s progress is one of the most intriguing aspects of the Marlies but Dubas is preaching patience saying the 19 year old forward along with all other young players need to prove they can be complete players for a consistent period of time before being seriously considered for NHL promotion I think he needs to continue to sustain the way he s played the last week or two on both sides of the puck his offensive abilities have always been there and now he s really starting to become consistent Dubas explained If he continues to do that consistently he ll start to force the hand of the team We have a patient approach Despite reports to the contrary Dubas says the Maple Leafs brass doesn t have any hard timelines regarding when young prospects will be promoted The term we use internally is that we want the players to master the AHL level and the minor league level and not bring them up after one good weekend he said They have to show us they can do all of the things Once our guys show they can master the AHL consistently then we ll have that conversation That s up to the players Never been a hard and fast rule that no one is coming up this year Dubas mentioned a handful of young players that have shown improvement early in the season including Joshua Leivo Nikita Soshnikov and defenceman Justin Holl Entering Tuesday the Marlies lead the North Division with a 10 3 0 record and have won seven of their past 10 games 2Fhockey 2Fnhl 2Fdubas very pleased with development of young players with marlies 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro 2 hours ago Has Marc Andre Fleury been great or lucky 3 hours ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 6 hours ago Too early to talk about a comeback for Carey Price 7 hours ago Naked Eye vs Nerdy Guy Should Luca Sbisa be in Canucks top 6 7 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 9 hours ago Hockey Central No need to rush Nylander 1 34 7 hours ago Weekend Takeaways Reimer becoming a valuable asset 10 hours ago A history of NHL goals from the other end of the ice 8 hours ago MOST
