Throughout September, the Toronto Maple Leafs had three clear contenders for the last spot on the team's blue line.
It was a close race between Calle Rosen, Andreas Borgman, and Roman Polak - but it appears we now know who has won the spot.
Roman Polak is currently on a PTO with the team, and could potentially earn a contract with the team as a 7th or even 8th defenseman. The real race seemed to be between Rosen and Borgman, two players who were signed to entry-level contracts as free agents from Europe.
Obviously there are still a couple days before the season starts so things can change, but having Borgman paired up with Connor Carrick is a pretty strong sign that he's won the favour of the coaching staff.
