Toronto GM Kyle Dubas believes the Maple Leafs could use seven blueliners at times during games in 2020-21.
"The depth of our D would lend itself to this and I wouldn't be surprised to see us use it from time to time," Dubas said on Saturday. He mentioned that Zach Bogosian's penalty kill ability and Mikko Lehtonen's power-play skills could become factors in this decision, but it will ultimately to be up to coach Sheldon Keefe if it's implemented. Dressing seven defensemen in games could also provide Toronto's star forwards with more ice time during even-strength situations. Nov 30 4:51 pm (EST)
