The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Wednesday that the team has recalled defenceman T.J. Brennan from the Toronto Marlies (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Brennan, 26, leads all AHL defencemen with a team-high 55 points (22 goals, 33 assists) in 59 games with the Marlies this season and was named an AHL All-Star in January. In 46 NHL games, including six with the Maple Leafs in 2014-15, he has registered four goals and eight assists. The Willingboro, New Jersey native was originally selected by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round (31st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
The Maple Leafs host the New York Islanders tonight at 7 p.m. at Air Canada Centre.
