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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
