Sam Carrick attended Marlies training camp at beginning of the season.. He was cut by Marlies coach Dallas Eakins..

Then Marlies GM Dave Nonis rather than have him sit around, found an ECHL team (with Dallas) where he loaned him to that organization, so he can continue to develop his skills.

Marlies already have an extended roster due to the lockout, and when it ends and some Marlies are promoted to the Leafs Carrick will have an opportunity to join them at that time.
