This season marks the 10th trip to the postseason in Toronto’s 13-year history. Toronto reached 50 wins this season for the third time in franchise history (2007-08, 2015-16) and set the League record for most road wins in a season (30). The Toronto Marlies clinched a playoff berth on March 10 and will finish as the regular season champions, securing the Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy on April 6. The Marlies are also conference champions for the third time in team history (2011-12, 2015-16) and division champions for the sixth time.
The Toronto Marlies are the primary development program for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The current Toronto Maple Leafs roster features 12 players who were developed by the Marlies (Tyler Bozak, Connor Brown, Connor Carrick, Travis Dermott, Jake Gardiner, Zach Hyman, Nazem Kadri, Kasperi Kapanen, Leo Komarov, Josh Leivo, William Nylander and Morgan Rielly).
