New, comments

Having to get down to the opening night roster, the Leafs made some hard decisions.

Today the Toronto Maple Leafs announced their last batch of players cut from training camp as they move to finalize their opening night roster.

Matt Read as previously noted has been released form his PTO and signed to an AHL contract with the Toronto Marlies.

Kenny Agostino, Kevin Gravel, Nic Petan, and Garrett Wilson were all placed on waivers to be sent to the Toronto Marlies.

Egor Korshkov has also been sent to the Toronto Marlies, but he doesn’t need to clear waivers.

Four players are still injured: Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott are on IR, and Kalle Kossila and Mason Marchment are non-roster injured players, and can’t be sent down until they’re healthy.

The Maple Leafs are just under the salary cap by $108,690. One of the bigger surprises is Timothy Liljegren still on the roster at this point. A lot of assumptions were made about him starting the season on the Marlies. Changes will be made as players become healthy enough to play, however.

The current roster with cap calculation is below.
