I know, I know, the trade deadline move you were waiting anxiously for has finally happened; Kevin Gravel has been recalled by the Leafs.
#Leafs have recalled Kevin Gravel from the Marlies.
Practice about to start here shortly.

Seriously though, ahead of practice this could mean one of a few things: The Leafs could just be adding in a body with Timashov’s departure opening up a roster spot, or they’re just recalling Gravel to give him a day in the NHL again, or they actually plan on suiting him up because they’re looking at making more moves. We’ll keep an eye on whether or not Tyson Barrie is out there skating with the rest of the team in the coming hour.
