Here’s the Leafs line up for tonight:
Full Flyers line up coming soon, but here’s what we know for now:
THE LONDON SQUAD
Flyers fans up north will get to see some prime-time players in action as Matt Read, Sean Couturier and Wayne Simmonds will make the trip. Like most of last season, Couturier and Read have been paired together through the first three days of camp.
Del Zotto is one of four former London Knights who will also be in the lineup, while Zac Rinaldo will be one of 10 vets suiting up for the Flyers. Rinaldo played half of the 2008-09 and 2009-10 season with London before being traded to the Barrie Colts.
More recently however is Anthony Stolarz, who is beginning his pro career where he ended his junior career. Coming off of two seasons with London, he appeared in two consecutive Memorial Cups with the Knights.
Stolarz isn’t new to the Flyers’ London game. He appeared in last year’s game, allowing one goal through parts of two periods, splitting time with Steve Mason.
“It’s definitely exciting to be going back to London. It was my home for the last year and a half,” said Stolarz, who even though its a place he’s comfortable playing in, takes the same approach as he would of a game in any building.
“You just want to go out there and make an impression. Everyone is fighting for roster spots so you want to go in and play your best and leave an impression on the coaching staff and make the decision tough on them.”
A former Knight from 2005-08, Mason will also see action against the Leafs over the games on back-to-back nights, ending at the Air Canada Centre on Tuesday.
Technically speaking it will be an all-London core of goaltenders at Budweiser Gardens as Flyers goaltending coach Jeff Reese is a former Knight as well (1983-86).
Make no mistake about it though, the upcoming preseason games are regular season games for many of the rookies and players hoping to make the squad out of camp. None more so than Scott Laughton.
“I wasn’t too happy with my performance so hopefully I can redeem myself this year and come out with a couple wins, said Laughton. “We have to take it really serious and try and play our best. Practice is one thing but games are another, so that’s going to be huge for me making the next step.”
A full roster of each team will be available on Monday…
