The Leafs' plan for him was clear: working with him on and off the ice to help him get back on track.

Ilya Samsonov has cleared waivers and will join the Toronto Marlies.

He won't play in any games this week. The Leafs/Marlies team are going to work with him on and off the ice to get his confidence & game back.


Today, he wasn't on the ice.

Ilya Samsonov is not on the ice at Marlies practice. Sounds like, as of right now, he won't be practicing with the team this week.


We don't know if the goalie was simply working outside the ice or if he simply didn't show.

However, many fans could be preoccupied by his absence.

Details will follow as the situation develops.
