The Maple Leafs have loaned Leipsic to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL. Along with Leipsic, who has notched one goal and three points in six games with the Maple Leafs to date, the big club also loaned fellow forward Kasperi Kapanen to the Marlies. While the duo could be back with the Leafs before long, Jonas Siegel of the Canadian Press suggests that Sunday's moves could be related to the potential return to action of both Milan Michalek and Brad Boyes.
Leipsic was called up to the Leafs on an emergency basis Thursday. Leipsic's recorded 37 points in 50 games with AHL Toronto this season. A checking winger with some offensive flair, Leipsic's ascension to the parent club is the result of an upper-body injury to Brad Boyes.
Leipsic has been loaned to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL, the Toronto Sun reports. The 21-year-old Leipsic, who has recorded a goal and an assist in four games for the Leafs this season, was part of a roster churn up front on Monday that resulted in three forwards (including Leipsic) being sent to the AHL and five being recalled by the big club.
Leipsic was called up Monday to Toronto, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports. Leipsic's recall comes after the Maple Leafs traded away Nick Spaling and Roman Polak as part of the team's rebuilding process. The 21-year-old scored a goal in his one and only NHL game and is likely to see significant ice time given Toronto's lack of options from their trade deadline fire sale. The winger will look to bring his AHL productivity, 37 points in 49 games, to the pros and prove why he should remain a part of the organization's future.
Leipsic was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Tuesday, James Mirtle of TSN reports. Leipsic received an emergency call-up to the NHL squad and scored in his lone game with the parent club, but he'll now head back to the AHL. The 21-year-old has been impressive with 14 goals and 20 assists in 47 games at that level this season, so he may eventually get another shot in the NHL before the end of the season.
