Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Garret Sparks will make his NHL debut against the Edmonton Oilers at Air Canada Centre on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, SN).

Sparks, 22, was recalled Saturday from Toronto of the American Hockey League and backed up Jonathan Bernier. Goaltender James Reimer sat out because of a lower-body injury.

"(Maple Leafs coach) Mike (Babcock) told me after practice [Sunday], so I'm trying not to get ahead of myself, just keep a very even keel and play my best hockey," Sparks told the Toronto Star.

Sparks, a seventh-round pick (No. 190) in the 2011 NHL Draft, is 8-2-1 in 11 AHL games. He's second in the league with a .938 save percentage and fourth with a 1.90 GAA.

McDavid has been working out in Toronto and will meet the Oilers on Monday when they play the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.

"I won't tell you what our schedule is," Chiarelli told the Oilers website. "He's been rehabbing, normal rehab. Maybe we put a conservative schedule on him and he's ahead. He's doing some exercises in the pool. He's doing some lifting exercises, not with his shoulders. He's working on his range of motion."
