Leafs Recall MacWilliam on Emergency Basis

Andrew MacWilliam has been called up on an emergency basis from the Toronto Marlies. The 24-year-old defenseman has played 53 games with the Marlies this season, earning 7 points. He’s been in the organization for 7 years now (drafted in the 7th round in 2008), and will finally be playing with the big club. If nothing else, it’s a good story.

As per David Alter, MacWilliam should be playing tonight against Buffalo.

This move was foreshadowed yesterday by Peter Horachek.

While no other sources appear to be confirming who’s coming out, the Sun’s Lance Hornby believes it will be Petter Granberg coming out of the lineup to make room for MacWilliam.

Andrew MacWilliam- he’s one of our own.
