TORONTO — The Maple Leafs organization has 40 players in its system that will open the 2015-16 season at the minor league level – either with the AHL’s Marlies or the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears.

Twenty-two of those players have an NHL standard players contract with the Leafs while 17 are signed to an AHL standard players contract with the Marlies.

Defenceman James Martin is the only player on the Marlies’ opening night roster that is on a profession try-out agreement while blue liner Petter Granberg hasn’t officially been demoted yet because of an injury, but is expected to be in the AHL once healthy.

A player on an AHL deal cannot be called up to the Maple Leafs without upgrading to an NHL contract. It can be explained in further detail here.

Below is the Marlies’ opening night roster and which players will start the year with Orlando. Any player on an AHL contract that has been placed with the Solar Bears can be recalled by the Marlies when needed.

The Marlies open the season against the Manitoba Moose on Friday Oct. 9, 2015.
