Maple Leafs made some moves late before tonight’s game:
Defenceman Martin Marincin, defenceman Calle Rosen and goaltender Joseph Woll have been reassigned to the @MapleLeafs taxi squad.— Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) March 11, 2021
Forward Alexander Barabanov, defenceman Mikko Lehtonen, defenceman Timothy Liljegren and forward Nic Petan have been loaned to the @TorontoMarlies.
Earlier today, both CapFriendly and the AHL Transactions page showed Woll on the Marlies. That now reads as on the Taxi Squad, so dial back those expectations on Jack Campbell’s readiness to return.
When Campbell and Wayne Simmonds are both back, Woll or Hutchinson will have to return to the AHL.
Timothy Liljegren, called up for the road trip to Edmonton and Vancouver, but never played, returns to the AHL in time for their game on Friday after a few days off. Replacing him on the squad are Martin Marincin, who played in some AHL action, and Calle Rosen, who is the regular top pairing defender on the Marlies.
Surprisingly, both Alex Barabanov and Mikko Lehtonen, who have played in some games, but clearing aren’t cracking the lineup yet, will get some minor league action instead of sitting and watching in the NHL. Joining them is Nic Petan, just as Kenny Agostino makes his debut in the NHL.
