For now Rasmus Sandin has remained on the roster, as has Nick Robertson and some other waivers-exempt players.

Notably absent are Pierre Engvall, as well as several players who need waivers today at noon. We’ll have the official list when that’s announced. Some of the players on this roster will need waivers to be moved to the Taxi Squad. A list of waiver exemptions is here:

The presence of Alexander Kerfoot here does not mean he’s healthy. It’s likely he will move to IR if he’s not ready for Wednesday, but the cap situation with the Leafs doesn’t allow for more than one extra player.

We expect an announcement of the AHL season and training camp dates in the next few days. When that happens, some movement of players to the AHL to actually play may start to occur.

This is a helpful list of the players who were cut:
