Sandin was a healthy scratch Monday against San Jose.

It was simply a break -- Sandin has played a lot of hockey for the Marlies (AHL), Sweden (IIHF U20) and now the Leafs. He had an assist Saturday against Vancouver but also saw just 13:23 of ice time. Sandin is a good one, but he doesn't turn 20 until Saturday, and the NHL is rough on teenage defenders. He has one goal and seven assists in 26 games.
