The Leafs had their final practice in Trenton Wednesday morning before a golf outing ended their three-day trip. 

The lines remained the same Wednesday with the big news of the day being that defenceman Cody Franson will be making his Leafs debut against the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Franson is looking forward to getting back in action after sitting out the first two games of the season.

"It will be huge," Franson said. "I've been waiting for it for a while. I prepared for it all summer and to hopefully get that chance will be fun."

In his address with the media, head coach Ron Wilson said that Matthew Lombardi will be the third line centre for the next little while and that the team will continue to watch him closely during games.

He also spoke about Franson getting into the lineup and with the number of defencemen on the roster trying to keep them all happy.

While in Trenton, the Leafs took part in numerous activities including a flight on a C-17 military transport, a fire and rescue demonstration and they also had a chance to check out some of the artillery. Check out all the photos with a few of the players contributing the pictures on their Twitter accounts.
