Leafs send defenceman Komisarek to Marlies, bring up forward Hamilton

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs assigned Mike Komisarek to the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies on Thursday after the defenceman cleared waivers.

Komisarek was a healthy scratch for all but four of the Maple Leafs' games this season.

The 31-year-old is in the fourth season of a five-year deal that pays him an average of US$4.5 million.

The Leafs called up forward Ryan Hamilton from the Marlies. In 56 AHL games this season, Hamilton leads the club in goals (30), points (48), power-play goals (seven), short-handed goals (three), shots (116), and shooting percentage (25.9 per cent).

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
