Maple Leafs prospect Scott Harrington done for season

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock talks about the play of the Marlies and how it compares to the Leafs.

Scott Harrington‘s season is over.

The 22-year-old Toronto Maple Leafs prospect will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign due to an upper-body injury, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston.

Harrington, a native of Kingston, Ont., came to Toronto as part of the blockbuster deal that sent Phil Kessel to the Pittsburgh Penguins last off-season.

Harrington opened the 2015-16 season with the Maple Leafs, registering one assist in 15 games. He was sent to the AHL’s Toronto Marlies in late November, where he registered one goal and two assists in 17 games before suffering the injury.

The former London Knight was selected in the second round (54th overall) of the 2011 draft by Pittsburgh, and played 10 games Penguins in 2014-15.
