Frattin Makes Leafs; Porter On Blues

Hobey Baker finalist Matt Frattin has made the Toronto Maple Leafs and will play on either the first or second line Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens. The Leafs made their final cuts on Monday.

Also of note, former Sioux captain Chris Porter has made the St. Louis Blues out of camp after playing 45 games with the Blues last season.

Former Sioux standout Ryan Johnson will be looking for a spot to catch on. The Detroit Red Wings released him at the end of training camp.

    Is there an injury or something in Toronto? Everything I’ve read lists Frattin on the 3rd line. Either way, congrats to both!

    Congrats to both Frats and Porter. Well deserved. On an unrelated note, Notre Dame’s
    choice of Hockey (L)east should come as no surprise to anyone. Going to “The National’ would have taken some degree of courage. Playing the likes of the true “ND” as well as Denver,Omaha, Duluth, CC etc. would have been rough for those guys. Hockey (L)east has BU,BC, and ocasionally Maine. Do the math. Does the term “gutless” seem appropriate? Just my blunt opinion.

      In the past you might have been able to call it Hockey Least, but up and down Hockey East is a very solid conference. UND hasn’t had great success lately against the upper level of Hockey East.

    Way to go Frats!!!!

    Any point predictions out there for the Rookie? Can he break the 20/20 club with a 40 points splash on his first year. Perhaps make a run at the Calder?

    It could happen. Best of luck Matt!!!

    1. yor're funny!

      That is awesome! You’re joking right? I’m assuming since Parise, Oshie, and Toews(did but barely) break the 40 pt mark that you’re kidding right?

      Let’s shoot for breaking the 10pt mark I think that might be realistic.
