When players were returning to the lockerooms, Bokondji Imama, while passing by Marlies' goaltender Dennis Hildeby, aggressively jabbed him with his stick.


This action did not go unnoticed by Hildeby's teammates, leading to an intense brawl, with Kyle Clofford dropping the gloves against Imama.

The confrontation quickly grew into a large-scale scrum, involving many players on the ice.

Dennis Hildeby got called up to the Maple Leafs as a replacement for Ilya Samsonov, who was sent down to the AHL. During his brief tenure with the Leafs, Hildeby didn't get the chance to make his NHL debut.

In his first game back with the Marlies, Hildeby was nothing less than perfect.

This truly shows the young goalie's potential and mindset, indicating that he could have a long and successful career in the NHL.

Do you think Hildeby and Woll are the Leafs' future between the pipes?
