Maple Leafs sign defenceman Martin Marincin to one-year extension

Maple Leafs sign defenceman Martin Marincin to one-year extension”

The breaks continue to go against the Maple Leafs where shot-block injuries are concerned.

Now add Morgan Rielly's name to the list.

The Leafs said Rielly, who underwent a CT scan Monday afternoon, would be placed on injured reserve and reassessed in early March.

And as the Maple Leafs circled the ice before a skills session, many players, from veteran Jason Spezza to former Marlies teammate Adam Brooks, stopped to chat with Sandin.

Johnsson returned to the lineup against Florida, but Moore, Mikheyev and Muzzin remain on the shelf. While playing just over 12 minutes per night with the big club, he tallied two assists and produced some dazzling possession stats, including a 57.5 Corsi For percentage and a 52.5 expected goals for percentage, according to Natural Stat Trick. He played 44 games under Keefe last season with the Marlies as well.

Often counted out as far as regular National Hockey League employment is concerned, the 27-year-old is definitely a survivor, having arrived early in the Mike Babcock era, shuttling between the Marlies and Leafs ever since. Sandin, 19, had two assists for the Leafs in six games earlier in the season, and has 15 points (2 goals, 13 assists) in 21 AHL games, and was named the top defenseman at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic after scoring 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists) for Sweden in seven games.

The Leafs have been without Muzzin - another top-4 defenceman - since he broke his foot on December 27. He had 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) and 321 penalty minutes in the National Hockey League.
