The Maple Leafs have assigned Travis Dermott to Toronto (AHL).
Dermott was sent to the AHL to get the Maple Leafs roster to 23 with William Nylander joining the team after signing a six-year extension on Saturday. Dermott was the one demoted because he is waiver exempt. However, the Maple Leafs are trying to trade another player from their active roster and Dermott would then re-join the team for Tuesday’s game.
Dermott will be back in the Maple Leafs lineup on Thursday.
Dermott will be playing his first game since October 20th tonight vs. the Stars. Dermott originally missed two games due to an illness but was a healthy scratch on Monday. Dermott will have a new D-partner with Justin Holl make his season debut alongside of him.
Dermott (illness) will not play Wednesday in Winnipeg.
Dermott will come out of the Maple Leafs lineup on Wednesday, with Martin Marincin drawing back in. Dermott is day-to-day, but should be back for Saturday’s game vs. the Jets.
Dermott is day-to-day with an ankle injury; won’t play on Monday.
Dermott suffered what appeared to be a serious ankle injury vs. the Jets on Saturday, but MRI revealed no structural damage for the rookie defenseman. Dermott is considered day-to-day and will likely be dealt with caution during the final week of the regular season.
Dermott (illness) will be in the Maple Leafs lineup on Wednesday.
Dermott missed Tuesday’s practice but says he will play tonight vs. the Stars after getting over a head cold. Dermott has picked up just one assist over his last nine games though.
Dermott (illness) is questionable for Wednesday.
Dermott missed Tuesday’s practice with an illness, so his status for Wednesday’s game vs. the Stars is in doubt. Calle Rosen was recalled from Toronto (AHL) and will play if Dermott is unable to go.

Dermott had one assist while averaging 14:12 TOI/GM in his two-game stint with the Maple Leafs. The Leafs bye week starts on Thursday so Dermott heads back to the Marlies to keep playing but could return to the big club after their break.
Dermott will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.
Dermott had one assist with three shots and two PIMS in his first two NHL games. Tonight he will take a seat because Mike Babcock said he is in a rotation with Andreas Borgman and Connor Carrick, so look for him to replace Borgman in the lineup when the Maple Leafs get back from their bye week.
Dermott will make his NHL debut on Saturday.
Dermott was recalled on Friday and he skated as an extra defenseman at practice, but Dermott will replace Andreas Borgman on the Maple Leafs third pairing. The 21-year-old has picked up two goals and 15 assists (17 points) in 26 games with the Marlies (AHL) this season.

The Maple Leafs lack depth on the blueline so Dermott will get his first shot with the big club after collecting two goals and 15 assists (17 points) in 26 games with the Marlies this season. The 2015 second round pick (No.34 overall) has seven goals and 34 assists (41 points) in 85 career AHL regular season games. Look for him to make his NHL debut on Saturday.
