The Toronto Maple Leafs have sent J.M Liles to the Toronto Marlies (AHL).
Liles was originally recalled by the Leafs on October 28, but did not play in any games. He has played eight games for the Marlies this season collecting five points on one goal and four assists, while recording eight minutes in penalties.
Liles was recalled by the Maple Leafs on Monday to accompany them on their three game road trip. The Maple Leafs will roll with the same six defensemen as they used on Saturday. Liles had a goal and four assists in eight games with the Marlies.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled John-Michael Liles from Toronto (AHL).
The Maple Leafs are getting set for a three-game western Canadian road trip, so Liles has been recalled to be the Maple Leafs seventh defenseman on the trip. Liles has one goal and four assists in eight games with the Marlies.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed defenceman John-Michael Liles on waivers as their opening-night roster begins to come into focus.
Liles looked like the odd man out on the blue-line during the pre-season, something that became even more clear after Cody Franson signed. If he's not claimed by another NHL team, Liles could be assigned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
Liles has been a healthy scratch in the Maple Leafs last 12 games but he will draw back into the lineup tonight in place of Mike Kostka. He will likely play alongside Carl Gunnarsson on the Leafs second pair. He has one goal and five assists in 15 games this season.
