Leafs recall Jake Muzzin and Trevor Moore from AHL

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Saturday morning that defenceman Jake Muzzin along with forward Trevor Moore have been recalled. Both Muzzin and Moore were recently sent down to the Leafs' AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, on a conditioning stint.



Muzzin and Moore both played one game for the Marlies which took place on Friday night. Moore had one goal, while Muzzin recorded three shots on net in a win over the Cleveland Monsters.

The 30-year-old Canadian defenceman Muzzin is a key part of the Leafs blueline, as he averages over 21 minutes of ice time per game. He has been out of the lineup since suffering a fractured foot in a game against the New Jersey Devils on December 27th.

Moore has been held out of the lineup since December 21st after suffering a concussion in a game against the Detroit Red Wings. The undrafted 24-year-old American born forward has appeared in just 22 games this season, after missing some time previously due to a shoulder injury. In those 22 games he has three goals and two assists.

This is great news for the Leafs who have been struggling lately. What started as a blistering hot start under new head coach Sheldon Keefe has cooled off immensely lately, as the team is just 4-3-3 over their past ten games. Because of this cool stretch, the Leafs currently find themselves four points back of a playoff spot. They have a chance to get back on track when they take on the Nashville Predators Monday night. It is expected both Moore and Muzzin will be in the lineup.
