Pro Hockey Notes (AHL)

Two former Golden Knights had brief stints in the National Hockey League last month but both Steve Zalewski and Mark Borowiecki are back in the American Hockey League.
Who will be the next Golden Knight to make his NHL debut?
Rochester Americans goalie David Leggio seems like a candidate, though with Ryan Miller in Buffalo it may happen elsewhere.
Leggio made 37 saves on Saturday to lead the Americans to a 2-1 win over the Toronto Marlies.
"The most important thing is when I get shots that I'm able to see them," Leggio said to the Canadian Press. "The 'D' did a great job of boxing out and clearing rebounds. When we play like that as a team, it makes it easier for me and that was a big reason for us winning."
Leggio made two big saves in the game, stopping Toronto's Matt Frattin on a second-period breakaway and then preventing a goal from Nicolas Deschamps during a power play in the third.
"They had that one pass across on the 2-on-1 (to Deschamps) and when I made that save, I felt good about it," Leggio said. "And when they got that late power play, we just said we need to kill this. The guys stuck to our system, blocked shots and we were able to shut them down. They've got a lot of firepower, but we didn't dwell on it, we had the confidence that we were going to kill it and we did."
Here are two Leggio videos, one a general introduction and the other features him and former Clarkson assistant coach Ron Rolston, who coaches the Americans, preparing a dinner for a local Ronald McDonald House.

Borowiecki appeared in two games recently with the Ottawa Senators and made it back to Binghamton in time to participate for the Eastern Conference in the AHL All-Star Game in Atlantic City.
"I'm very excited to go to Atlantic City," Borowiecki told the Binghamton Press&Sun-Bulletin. "Lots of good players from the league are there, and to be included in that group is awesome and definitely an honor. These past 10 days have been pretty exciting for me, lots of positive and good steps in my career. I'm looking forward to trying to build off it."
Here's Borowiecki addressing the media after a recent game.

David Leggio (Rochester) 13-11-1 2.79 gaa .914 save percentage
