The Maple Leafs have recalled Timothy Liljegren from Toronto (AHL).

With Cody Ceci set to miss at least one month and Morgan Rielly still out, Liljegren could finally get his chance in the NHL. Liljegren made his NHL debut on January 18th but played just 10:40 TOI as a seventh defenseman. During his time with the Marlies, the 20-year-old has amassed five goals and 24 assists (29 points) in 38 games.

The Maple Leafs have recalled Timothy Liljegren from Toronto (AHL).

Liljegren could make his NHL debut Saturday vs. the Rangers. It's hard to imagine the Maple Leafs recalling one of their top defensive prospects to sit as a healthy scratch when they already have seven healthy blueliners on the roster. Liljegren has three goals and 14 assists to lead all Marlies defensemen with 17 points in 27 games.
