Maple Leafs recall Mac Hollowell from the Marlies

Mac Hollowell has been recalled to the Toronto Maple Leafs from Marlies.

The 23-year-old did not participate in Marlies practice on Friday morning, which means he’ll be on the ice with the Leafs at some point today.

The Marlies are headed on a two-game road trip and won’t have much skating time between now and Tuesday. This could very well be an opportunity to have Hollowell get some ice-time at Maple Leafs practices. It could be either or, or something else.

We’ll have to wait and see what Sheldon Keefe says this afternoon.
