The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Friday that the team has recalled defenceman Rinat Valiev
from the Toronto Marlies (AHL) on an emergency basis. Defenceman T.J. Brennan has been loaned to the Marlies.
Valiev, 20, has collected 21 points (three goals, 18 assists) in 54 games with the Marlies this season. He has yet to make his NHL debut after being selected by the Maple Leafs in the third round (68th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
The Maple Leafs return to the ice tomorrow when they travel to Ottawa to face the Senators at 7 p.m.
