A goalie, three defenders, maybe a forward are all out. So who's come up?
Erik Kallgren is back with us, playing behind Ilya Samsonov.
On defense Victor Mete returns to the NHL.
Finally, they brought up a couple of forwards as well in Nick Robertson and Wayne Simmonds.
There's always a silver lining, and with Murray out on LTIR the Leafs can afford to bring up Robertson who had a great camp and Simmonds, who is beloved by all.
There's a good chance we'll see Robertson make his season debut tonight when the Leafs host the Arizona Coyotes at 7:00.

These new board ads are not working out well.
Alright. That's what I have for you.
Enjoy your day and we will see you at 7!
