Leafs recall Nikita Soshnikov from Marlies

Leafs recall Nikita Soshnikov from Marlies”

The Toronto Maple Leaf have recalled forward Nikita Soshnikov from the Toronto Marlies, ensuring the Russian remains with the organization at least for the time being.

Matthews (upper body) skated at the Maple Leafs' practice facility Tuesday while the rest of the team had the day off, TSN reports.

Soshnikov played in 14 games with the Marlies, posting five goals and 12 points.

The 24-year-old winger was second in team scoring with the Leafs AHL affiliate (5 goals and 7 assists in 14 games) and is a favorite of Leafs coach Mike Babcock because of his work ethic and tenacity, but the move was necessitated by a clause in his entry-level contract that allows him to return to the KHL if he is not on an National Hockey League roster by November 15.

Gauthier, 22, was recalled by the Leafs from the Marlies on November 7 but did not play for the big club. He has two assists in eight games with the Marlies this season.

Gauthier did not appear in any games for the Leafs during his call-up.
