    News: Scott Harrington was paired with Jake Gardiner in his Leafs' debut Wednesday night against the Canadiens. He finished minus-1 with three shots on net, one hit and one block.

  • Recalled from AHL

    News: Scott Harrington was recalled from the AHL Marlies on Wednesday and is set to play on Wednesday night, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
    Analysis: Scott Harrington had an excellent camp and was in the mix for one of the final spots on the blue line. With Richard Panik clearing waivers and being sent down to the Marlies, Harrington gets his chance on the Maple Leafs' blue line. Harrington played in 10 NHL games for the Penguins last season, posting a minus-10 rating and scoring no points, but had a strong year in the AHL, putting up 12 points and posting a plus-19 rating in 48 games.
  • May have earned roster spot after great camp

    News: Scott Harrington has been a surprise at Leafs' camp and is in the hunt to start the season with the big club, reports the Toronto Sun.
    Analysis: Right now, it looks like he's in a battle with fellow newcomer Martin Marincin and wily veteran Stephane Robidas for the sixth and seventh spots on the blue line. He plays a smart, no-frills game that is highly effective which unfortunately works better on the ice than in the fantasy arena.
  • Leafs Acquire D-Man Harrington In Kessel Deal

    News: Scott Harrington was acquired Wednesday by the Maple Leafs along with prospect Kasperi Kapanen, center Nick Spaling, and first- and third-round draft picks in 2016 in exchange for forwards Phil Kessel and Tyler Biggs, defenseman Tim Erixon, and a 2016 second-round pick, Sportsnet.ca reports.
    Analysis: Kapanen is the better prospect of the two players the Leafs are receiving in return, but Scott Harrington provides the team with a solid building block on defense. The 22-year-old has a limited offensive ceiling, but possesses the ability to advance the puck while playing responsibly in his own zone. Those traits could be enough for him to claim a full-time role with Toronto out of training camp.
