Maple Leafs recall Greg McKegg

1728

The Maple Leafs have reportedly recalled 2010 third round pick Greg McKegg from the Toronto Marlies. This appears to be an insurance policy for tomorrow’s game vs. the Senators in case Peter Holland can’t go, as he was nursing a minor injury from yesterday’s win over Florida.

James van Riemsdyk and Carter Ashton are also banged up at the moment.

Greg McKegg has been centering the Marlies’ top line for most of the season and has quietly compiled an impressive 26 points in 35 games, recently stringing together a seven-game point streak in the month of January. He could make his NHL debut if Holland can’t play, but the call up at the very least rewards McKegg with his first NHL payday.

    Bolland played with Gleason in jrs; says he weighed 145 & Tim was basically what he’s at now (217) & threw him around quite a bit

    Burtonboy  A little bit of action sometimes is what’s needed after a certain point, too. Maybe on the 4th line for a game.

  • The Truth Hurts

  • MaxwellHowe

    TheCanucksnaphook Too bad if Holland is the one down.  His line was a sparkplug last night.

  • Marlies Man

    Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe Just as well he played once the docs clear him. I suspect he’d see limited minutes at first.
