Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Tuesday that forward Joey Crabb
has been recalled from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Crabb, 27, has played in 23 games for the Marlies and currently leads the team with nine goals. He has also added three assists along with 16 penalty minutes.
