The Maple Leafs have assigned Timothy Liljegren to Toronto (AHL).
Liljegren was a healthy scratch in the Maple Leafs season opener and will open the year with the Marlies. The 20-year-old Swedish defenseman had 15 points (3G / 12A) in 43 AHL games last year.
The Maple Leafs signed Timothy Liljegren to a three-year entry-level contract.
The Maple Leafs have selected Timothy Liljegren with the 17th overall pick.
Liljegren was a projected top 3 pick at the start of the season, but had a rough year, which started with mono. Missing eight weeks hurt his production and his draft stock, but the Leafs land a talented offensive-defenseman that loves to get into the action.
