The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Tuesday their 25 player roster that will participate in a Rookie Tournament hosted by the Leafs in Oshawa, Ontario. The players will compete in three games beginning on Saturday, September 10 versus prospect teams from the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators.
Attending the rookie tournament for the Maple Leafs is forward Matt Frattin, who was Toronto’s second choice, selected 99th overall, at the 2007 Entry Draft. Frattin made his NHL debut last season with the Maple Leafs on April 9 against the Montreal Canadiens. Other notables on the Leafs rookie tournament roster include defencemen Jake Gardiner and Jesse Blacker, and forwards Jerry D’Amigo, Greg McKegg and Brad Ross.
