Maple Leafs recall Ashton and Holland from AHL affiliate, McLaren sent down

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled forwards Carter Ashton and Peter Holland from their American Hockey League affiliate Wednesday.

Ashton, 22, has three assists in 30 games with the NHL club this season. In 16 games with the Toronto Marlies, he has 13 goals and five assists.

Holland, 23, has 10 points (5-5) in 32 games with the Leafs and four points (3-1) in four games for the Marlies.

The Maple Leafs also assigned forward Frazer McLaren to the AHL team Wednesday. McLaren, 26, did not record a point and had 72 penalty minutes in 26 games this season.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
