Toronto sign Talented Young AHL Defenseman

Toronto has had an incredibly busy summer this year, and now, the Marlies have added their own depth piece, with the potential for an NHL run in the future.

A talented young D-man


On Tuesday, it was confirmed that the Marlies had landed the signature of David Farrance, a talented young defenseman.

Originally, he was a third-round pick of the Predators way back in 2017, but the 24-year old just never caught on there, and now will be looking to establish himself in Toronto.

A bright future

Farrance has spent the past two years in the AHL between Milwaukee, Chicago and Colorado, and has scored an impressive 38 points in 90 games played, and will now look to find stability.

He played two NHL games with the Predators way back in 2020-21, struggling to record a point in those games, but with a lack of talent on the blue line, this is a savvy signing for the Toronto Marlies on a two-way deal.
